Needed: 2 or more players; A standard 52 card deck

Deal: All the cards are dealt out.  Some players may have one more card than others.  The cards are not looked at and remain face down in front of each player.

Objective: The object of the game is to get your opponent to run out of cards.  

Game Play: The player left of the dealer is first to play.  The player flips the top card of his/her card stack into the middle.  If the card is a numbered card (2-10), play continues to the next player clockwise.  If the card played into the middle is a face card or an ace, the next player has to play a face card or an ace as well.  Depending on the card played the next player gets a number of chances to play a face card or an ace.  

Aces - 4 chances to play a face card or an ace
Kings - 3 chances to play a face card or an ace
Queens - 2 chances to play a face card or an ace
Jacks - 1 chance to play a face card or an ace

If a face card or ace is played, the next player has to play a face card or an ace in the allotted chances.  If no face card or ace is played, the middle pile is taken by the last player to play a face card or an ace.  The cards are added to the bottom of the player’s card stack.

Once a player is out of cards, he/she is out of the game.  The last player with cards wins the game.
