Game rules. The game was invented by Jorge Mata. The game is well suited for family play. It is best to play with a large number of players. Before the game, players agree to play, either for a certain number of games, or for a set of a certain number of points that players set before the game starts. Having determined how the players will play, determine the deliverer by lot. Then the deck is carefully shuffled by the deliverer and if up to 4 players are playing, then each is dealt 7 cards, if more than 4 players, then each is dealt 6 cards. Cards are dealt one at a time, and after the cards are dealt, the next card from the deck is placed in the open form in the center of the table and becomes the first card of the discard pile. The remaining deck is placed next to this card in a closed form and is a stock. After the cards are dealt, players look at their cards and the first move in the game belongs to the player to the left of the deliverer. Each player on his turn can take one, and can not take one card from the stock cards and must put on top of the card pile discard the card only in 2 cases:

  1. if this card is of the same rank as the top card of the pile. The card can be of any suit;
  2. if this card is older or younger in rank by the same value and the same suit;
    The game is clockwise. If the stock cards end, then the top card of the discard pile remains on the table, and the remaining cards are mixed and placed in a stack in a closed form in place of the stock cards and become stock cards. When one player runs out of cards in his hands, the game stops and the players who have cards left, count the points for these cards. The cost of cards in points: Jack, Queen and king are worth 10 points for each; ACE is worth 15 points; all other cards are at par. Usually players play up to a certain number of points, which is determined by the players before the game.
