OBJECT OF TRASHED: The objective of Trashed is to be the first player to win three rounds of play.

NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 2 to 4 Players

MATERIALS: 56 Trashed Cards, One Trash Can Card Holder, and Instructions




Trash was inspired by an old card game, Garbage. There are some unique twists that takes Trashed to a whole new level. The goal is to get all of your cards in the correct order, all while keeping your cards face down! It sounds simple, but quickly can become difficult!

Can you remember which cards you have replaced, all while trying to avoid getting trashed by another player? This family friendly game is awesome for all age groups and requires simple set up!


Choose a player to act as the dealer and have them shuffle the deck. The dealer will give each player 10 cards, facing down. Players will then place their cards, still facing down, in front of them. The remaining cards will be used as the draw pile and can be placed in the middle of the table. 

The discard pile begins with the top card from the draw pile. Simply flip the card and place it beside the draw pile. The game is ready to begin!


The player on the dealer’s left will begin the game, and gameplay will continue around the group to the left. When it is your turn, you may take a card either from the draw pile or the discard pile. You do not have to keep this card hidden from the other players.

Use the card drawn to replace one of your facedown cards. The goal is to get your ten cards into correct numerical order, with the top left card being one, the bottom left card being six, and the bottom right card being ten. Place your new card in its proper place.

After replacing a card, look and see what card you replaced. If it can be used to replace another card, you may do so. Continue this way until you either reveal a stop card or until you are unable to use the card that was replaced. End your turn by discarding the unused card. 

The first round ends when a player has all of their cards in correct order. The dealer will then shuffle the cards and give all the players ten cards each, just like the first round. The winner of the first round is only given nine cards. Players cannot go down to nine cards until they have been the first player to get ten cards in the right order.

Players are responsible for keeping up with the number of cards they need each round. The first player that wins three rounds, so a round of ten cards, nine cards, and eight cards, wins the game!

Special Cards

Wild Cards

When wild cards are played, they may be played on any card, that is facing down, of your choice. If you draw a card that may takes the place of the wild card, it may be replaced. You may then play the wild card on another face down card.

Stop Cards

When a stop card is uncovered or drawn, your turn immediately comes to an end. 

Trashed Cards

Trash cards give you the upper hand on your opponents. You have the opportunity to steal any opponents’ number card that is facing up. Simply replace it with the trash card. You cannot steal wild cards. The targeted player must then get rid of the trash card by replacing it with a wild card or the needed number card.


The game comes to an end when a player wins three rounds. That player wins the game!
