Originally played with the French deck, although the Spanish one can also be used.
Game for 2 or 4 players.
Warning: it’s a quick game!
The dealer deals all the cards equally, face down.
If there are 2 players, you deal the 2 jokers, one to each, and you divide the cards by colours: red and black.
If there are 4 players, you deal one suit for person, and you don’t deal the jokers.
Each player puts his cards in a pile face down. Next, each player takes the top card from the pile and places it face up in the middle of the table.
Then, you put 7 cards from your pile face up in front of you.
You have to put one by one the seven cards in them middle, placing them over one of the cards in the middle, which has to be in number just above or below yours. So, for example, on the table there is a 7, you can put either an 8 or a 6.
The goal of the game is to be the first to finish all the cards you have.
You replace the cards in front of you continually, trying to have 7 all the time until the end, although actually this happens so quick that is more or less simultaneous — you place one card i nthe middle, then another, then another, at the same time you try to take out more cards…
If you cannot put any ofyour cards at some point, you must wait until you can put one, or until all the other players cannot put their cards neither. In this case, all the players must take one card fro mtheir piles and put them in the middle over the old ones, all at the same time.
