Rules and Play!
BIG 2.5 is a climbing game known as simply "Big 2" or "Choi Da Di" with an added twist. Each player in turn must play a higher card (or combination of cards) than the previous player. A player who cannot or does not wish to beat the previous play can pass. This continues for as many rounds as necessary until someone makes a play which no one will beat. The aim is to clear all cards in your hand.
