Gameplay

  • The game consists of 4 rounds. At the start of each round, deal 7 cards to each player. The others are not used for the round.
  • On your turn, pick a card you want, then pass the rest to the left. All cards drafted are not revealed.
  • After 7 turns, all hands are depleted and drafted cards are scored. Afterwards, shuffle all 28 cards and start a new round.

Scoring

  • Throw and Catch: The first card drafted in a round is the throw, and the last card drafted is the catch. If the catch is higher than the throw, score points equal to the throw.
