Game play

  1. Deal all of the cards.
    • 1111 are removed for 7-8 players.
  2. Depending on the number of players, choose 3-5 cards to pass face-down to the player to your left.
    • This must be done before you look at any cards passed to you.
  3. Once all players have passed cards, an eight-sided die is rolled.
    • Whichever side lands face up determines which 7 card is worth points in that round.
    • For example, if is rolled, the 7 is worth 40 points.
  4. The dealer plays first, with any card from their hand.
  5. In clockwise rotation, each player plays a card.
    • Suit must be followed where possible.
    • There is no trump suit; the highest card in the led suit wins the trick.
  6. Whoever takes the trick leads the next trick.
  • The number of rounds is determined before the game.
  • Points are accumulated throughout the game.
  • The total number of points in the round should equal to 250.
