Phase 10 is a fast-paced card game you can enjoy with friends and relatives. It's also a relatively simple game that all ages can play. If you have nobody to play with, you can always play Phase 10 online. There are two variations of the game to be found on the Internet. Signing up to play only takes a few minutes of your time, and then you're on your way.
Dice Version of Phase 10
Visit the Tams 11 website to download the dice version of Phase 10, called Tratzee.
Select “Tams11 Lobby,” to download and install the Lobby, which is necessary to play Phase 10 against other human users. Register with a user name.
Select "Tratzee" from the drop-down menu under "Dice" in the Games menu. Select "Download Tratzee" and follow the instructions.
Sign back into the Lobby and select "Tratzee" to begin playing with others. If you wish to simply play alone, select the “Play Solo” tab. Download the game and play offline.
Card Version of Phase 10
Log on to the Wizard Cards website to play an online card version of Phase 10. Once on the home page, click on the large “Wizard” found in the middle of the page. You will be taken to a new webpage.
Click on the “Register To Play Wizard Cards & Chat” to begin registration. You must be registered with Wizard to play Phase 10 using their forums.
Agree to the terms found on the website to continue registering. Once you have done so, create a user name as you would on any other online forum. When you have finished this section, click the “Register” tab found at the bottom of the page.
Download the game by selecting the “Download Wizard Cards” link found underneath the “Register to Play Wizard Cards & Chat” link. This will take you to a new webpage with available links. Select the appropriate link (most likely the first one found on the top of the webpage) for your needs. Download and install the program.
Open the Wizard Cards program. From there, all you will need to do is find at least three players online (such as on Yahoo Games), and you can start your own Phase 10 game.
Neither game is called "Phase 10" as the online versions are not authorized by the game's original maker.
Playing on the Tams 11 Lobby is free for 30 days, after which a 90-day or annual subscription must be purchased.
