The object of the game is to not have the lowest card. Each player starts the game with an equal number of life, usually 3. Pick a dealer who shuffles a standard 52 card deck of playing cards, with king high and ace low. The dealer deals 1 card to each player. Players look at their card but keep it hidden from others.

Beginning with the player left of the dealer then proceeding clockwise, each player has one turn. On your turn you may either keep your card or try to exchange it with the player to your left. Your neighbor must accept the exchange unless they have a king, in which case they show the king and you keep your card. On the dealer’s turn, they may try to exchange their card from the remaining deck, instead of the player to their left, but if the card obtained is a king, the dealer must keep their original card.

After everyone has had their turn, everyone exposes their card and whoever has the lowest card loses 1 life. Suite is irrelevant, so if several players tie for lowest they all lose a life. Once you lose all your lives you are out of the game. The last player standing, in wins.

  9. This is an old 19th century Cornish game called Ranter Go Round. It must have starte life as a gambling game, but is now a children's or family game. Usually if you are forced to exchange an ace, 2 or 3, you have announce it. In Cornwall, the ace was "wee", the 2 was the "pig's toe" and 3 was the "tailor's yard". Ranter Go Round is the best name for this game as it can't be confused with anything else. Screw Your Neighbor is an alternative name for no less than 5 different card games and Chase the Ace is also the name of a popular type of lottery that just happens to use cards. As far as I know, no-one ever calls it Cuckoo – that's a name that appears in card books because there is a very similar but even older French game called Coucou that may be ancestral to Ranter. The Italian game Cucu is like this one in concept but uses special cards. Enjoy!
