We learned to play skipbo with the understanding that when you make your personal discard piles that you have to lay out the cards 4 across then you build on them.
My mother's step-grandchildren just got the game and understand the rules to be that you can build on one pile as much as you like without making 4 across before you build, on personal discard piles.
Which is it? Of course, in the end, I still like to hold to "house rules" but I'd still like to know how the game is played correctly. What do you understand that to be?
It has been a really long time since I played but I think I played that you do not have to make four piles before build on the first pile. Like if you have two fours you can stack them instead of making a new pile. That is just the way we played with my nan, I don't think I ever actually ever read the rules.
