Rules question: If 2 players fill the entire board and neither has 2 sequences (particularly if 1 player has 1 sequence, while the other player has none) is the game considered a DRAW? I could not find the answer in the official rules included with the game.

Re Oliver's comment of September 11. The rules say any one of the spaces for another sequence......"One " being the operative word, eg the centre space on a vertical AND horizontal sequence, not any more spaces
Oliver says:

The Sequence game rules state that "you may use any one of the spaces from your first SEQUENCE as part of your second". I take this to mean that I can add a single chip to the end or beginning of an existing SEQUENCE to create a new SEQUENCE. Just following the rules.

Dolly, the rules say "You cannot remove a marker chip that is already part of a completed SEQUENCE". You can't remove their sequence.

A player turns in a dead card and pulls a replacement card that's also a dead card can the player pull another dead card.

Is the Nordic version different from the, presumably, American version generally available? The reason I ask is that I learnt to play this game in Norway earlier this year, and I think the board layout may be slightly different. I loved it and want to buy a game for my sister, who also participated in the Norwegian games.

What was the answer to cheryl's question? If your opponent accidently removes one of there chips with the one eye jack?
Dolly says:
05-04-2017

If the opponent has a sequence and I got one eye Jack. I removed their sequence. Does that still count as their sequence ? Or all 5 chips must be presented at all times to have two sequences?

You may talk over the table.

Double sequence rule-When a player only sees one of the sequence and not the other only calls for one. Does that count 1 sequence or two
Graham says:
03-30-2017

In the rules we are finding different ways of interpreting the play when one plays a one eyed jack. The rules quote "Once a Jack is played, it ends the turn.". Some of our players insist this means you don't pick up so from that point on you are one card short, others say that that the game continues in the usual fashion with the player picking up a new card from the kitty after playing the one eyed jack.

What is the answer to Jim's question -- "does a player have to announce that they have a sequence. If it was not claimed by the team with the sequence can the other team remove the chip with a wild card?"
Sara says:

If someone puts a wild card with 2 eyes and sets it on the place he was going to originally, but then quickly changes their mind and moves it somewhere else, does it count? Is that allowed?
Alina says:

If you have a Sequence in the middle of the Game Mat, and then you fill in both ends (two or more chips) so that your chips extend all the way across (10 chips), can you claim that as a second Sequence?
Jim says:

does a player have to announce that they have a sequence. If it was not claimed by the team with the sequence can the other team remove the chip with a wild card?

Is there any way to play with 5 people? Could there be a one man team playing for both and if not why?
Kaylan says:

If at the bottom of the board, there are six chips of the same color in a row. How many are considered the "sequence," and can you add one to one new chip at one end of the sequence and two at the other end, can that be considered two sequences?
Mavis says:

If you overlook a sequence can you claim it next turn
cheryl says:

If a player does not notice that they have a double sequence with one chip during their play. And notice it after their opponents plays. Do you still consider it a double sequence or did they get two separate sequences?
cheryl says:
04-28-2016

If a player uses the one eyed jack but accidentally removes their own chip. Is that considered a good play or do they continue playing and have the chance to remove their opponents chip?
Debbie Puchkori says:

If you already have a vertical sequence complete by using 5 squares towards middle leaving 2 squares open at top of column and three open squares at bottom , although they are at different ends of game mat, does this count as a second sequence
Ed says:

If you have a Sequence in the middle of the Game Mat, and then you fill in both ends (two or more chips) so that your chips extend all the way across (10 chips), can you claim that as a second Sequence?
Ed says:

Can you use more than one chip from an existing Sequence to create a second Sequence?
Buster says:

When playing with 4 people and one person alerts the other of a sequence they didn't see do they get to claim the sequence or is this considered table talk?
Vickie says:

I want to give the game as a gift to a family in Germany who do not speak English. Are there instructions in German?
Patti says:

If you already have a sequence, can you use one of the already used crown up chips to create another sequence?
Anne says:

Does the diagonal row have to be the same suit cards
diane says:

If you have four on the left and four on the right horizontally with a space between, if you put a chip in the center, do you have two sequences???
Tommy says:
03-22-2015

If a sequence is formed by selecting a play that is between two,three,or four cards creating a sequence longer than five cards...can either cards on the end of the sequence available to be removed by playing a one-eyed jack? Or are all cards considered a part of the sequence thus ineligible to be removed?
Elizabeth says:

when one player turns in a dead card and the replacement is also a dead card, can the player continue getting more cards?
Joanne says:
02-18-2014

A sequence of 5 is played including a free space. Same team plays another card extending the sequence to 6. Can 2 of the squares out of the six be used to create another sequence?
Carol says:
02-02-2014

When playing Sequence with 4 people, if one person alerts his partner that there is a Sequence that neither of them saw, can they claim that Sequence? I would think that would be considered "table talk" and would not be admitted as another Sequence.
Bob says:

if you have a sequence in the middle of the outside edge of board,and then fill the rest of the outside spaces. Do you have two sequences?
judy says:

after a sequence is made using the free corner space, can opposing players use the same free space to make their sequence during that game?
Marlene says:

A player turns in a dead card and pulls a replacement card that's also a dead card, can that player pull another card again?
Joan says:
