Card Games


Crazy Eights

Players: 2-8

Objective: Be the first player to get rid of all your cards.


  • Deal 5-8 cards one at a time, face down, starting with the player to the dealer’s left.

  • Place the rest of the cards face down in the center of the table.

  • Turn the first card up and place it beside the facedown pile. If an eight is turned, place it in the middle of the deck and turn over the next card. The cards that are face up create a starter pile.

  • Starting on the dealer’s left, each player places one card, with the face up, on the starter pile.

  • Each card played, other than an eight, must match the number or suit of the card on the starter pile. If the Ace of Spades is the starter, the card that is played must either be another Ace, or be any card from the spades suit. If unable to play a card, the player must draw cards from the top of the facedown cards until a play is possible. As each card is played, the player must perform the exercise on the card. The number of times the exercise is performed depends on the number on the card. Face value cards count as ten. Aces can be either one or eleven.

  • If the cards from the facedown pile run out, the player must pass his or her turn to the next player.

  • Save the card at the top of the starter pile. Shuffle the cards underneath. Turn the cards face down. Make these cards the new pile.

  • All eights are wild. An eight may be played at any time in turn. The player should only select a suit for it, not a number.

  • The first player without cards wins the game!

Old Maid

Players: 2-8

Objective: Each player tries to get rid of his, or her, cards as fast as possible. The player left holding the unmatched card, the Old Maid, loses. If the card is a Fit Crew Character, the player with the final card performs the exercise. The number of times the exercise is done depends on the number of the card. If the Athlete’s Choice card is the final card, the player holding the final card selects the exercise to be performed.

Cards: 51 or 53


  • Decide whether to remove a card or add the Athlete’s Choice card.

  • Shuffle and deal all the cards.

  • Players make as many pairs as possible, from their cards, and place these pairs face-up on the table in front of them.

  • Starting with the dealer, each player then takes a turn fanning out their hands so that the player to their left can draw one card. The player should not be allowed to see the player's hand from which they are drawing.

  • Continue to play in this fashion.

  • As players make pairs in their hand, they discard them immediately onto the table.
