There are many variations to this game, but here are the base rules. The object of this 2-4 player card game is to have the fewest points after 9 rounds. Pick a dealer who shuffles a standard deck of playing cards, and deals 6 cards to each player. The remaining cards are placed face down in the center of the table to form a stock and the top card is discarded face up, starting a discard pile. Players arrange their face-down cards, without looking at them, in a 3 by 2 grid. Then each player flips over any 2 of them face up.
The player to the left of the dealer goes first then play proceeds clockwise. On your turn you must either draw the top card of the stock or the discard pile. You may use the card you drew to replace any one of the six cards in your grid. If you choose to replace a face-down card you are not allowed to look at it before replacing it. The replaced card is discarded face-up to the discard pile. Then your turn ends and the next player goes.
You are allowed to discard a drawn card from the stock and end your turn but if you choose to take the card from the top of the discard, you must use it to replace one of the cards in your grid, you may not discard that same card.
Play continues until 1 player has all of their 6 cards face up. Then the game ends and points are scored. If two cards in the same column form a pair, then the point total for that column is 0. Each Ace is worth 1 point. Each 2 is worth minus 2 points. Cards 3-10 are each worth their face value. Queens and Jacks are each worth 10 points. And each King is worth 0 points.
Collect all the cards and the role of dealer rotates clockwise by one and a new round is played. The player with the lowest score at the end of 9 rounds wins.
