Game rules. The game is named after Mitch Gunzler, who invented it when he studied at the University of California, Los Angeles. For the game, a standard deck of 52 cards is used, it is best to play it three, four or five. Game of solitaire type. Each player has a so-called “scoreboard”, which consists of 4 columns of cards. Each column should contain cards of the same suit, which are arranged in descending order from top to bottom. It is forbidden for the player to have more than one column of the same suit. Before the game starts, the scoreboard is empty and there are no cards in it, cards are added during the game. After placing the cards in the scoreboard, they can not be removed from there. The card is added only to the bottom of the column and only one value less than the card on top of which it is placed. You can start a column with any card that the player considers necessary. The game consists of two stages.
The first step. The first deliverer in the game is determined by lot, in the following games, players hand over cards in turn clockwise. The deck is carefully shuffled by the deliverer and each player is dealt 5 cards, the remaining cards are placed in the center of the table and are a reserve. Next to the reserve will be formed a stack of discarded cards discarded players, and a little higher will be a stack of aces, where players will add aces. The first move in the game belongs to the player to the left of the deliverer. The player takes his cards and see if he can start in the scoreboard one column of cards of any suit. If he can, he puts the card in the clear and takes one card from the reserve, after which the move goes to the next player clockwise. If a player can not put a card, he discards one of his cards in the discard pile and takes one card from the reserve, after which the course goes to the next player clockwise. It is worth noting that the aces are not placed either in the scoreboard or in the discard pile, they are placed in the stack just above the discard pile in the aces stack, and the aces are placed in the clear so that all players can see them. Thus, the game goes as long as the stack of aces will not be 3 aces. After that, the second stage begins.
The second stage. The player who dropped the third ACE does not replenish his cards to five from the reserve pile and the game continues as well as in the first stage, only it is forbidden to take cards from the reserve. At each turn, the player must either discard the card in the discard pile or place it in the scoreboard. This continues as long as players have cards.
The winner of the game is the player who will collect the largest number of cards in one of the suits. If several players have an equal number of cards in any suit and claim the winner, then the winner is the one whose last (lower) card in the column is older. If the players cards equal in value, then the players together can play one more game to determine the winner.
