Needed: 2 or more players; A standard 52 card deck (additional decks are needed for 4 or more players)

Deal: To start, deal 10 cards to each player. The remaining deck is placed in the middle.  The cards remain face down.  Setup your cards in a straight row.  

Objective: The object of the game is to be the first player to line up your cards in a sequence starting with the ace.

Game Play:  The player left of the dealer goes first by drawing the top card from the middle deck.  In the first round each player has 10 card spots.  The spots are numbered 1 to 10 starting from the left.  When a numbered card is drawn, the card is placed in the corresponding spot.  For example, a 5 drawn will be put face up in the fifth spot on your row.  The face down card in the 5 spot is flipped up and moved accordingly.  When player can no longer make a move, a discard takes place to end the turn.  The next player to the left can choose to take the top discard, or draw the top card of the deck.  The kings are wildcards and can be put in any spot.  The jacks and queens are garbage and are discarded when picked up.  Aces are used for the 1 spot.  

Winning: Once a player has flipped up all his/her cards, each other player gets 1 more turn.  All the players that were able to flip up all 10 cards will only be dealt 9 cards in the next round, and will only need to get a sequence of 1 to 9.  Players that did not flip up all the cards will have to play the next round with 10 cards again.  Play continues this way with winning players going down 1 card, and losing players replaying with the same amount of cards as the previous round.  The first player to flip an ace in his/her last round wins the game.

  •  When a player flips up all his/her cards the other players get one more turn.  If on that last turn a player is able to flip up all his/her cards, he/she will also go down one card for the next round.
  • Wildcards can move.  For example, a player with a wildcard in the 2 spot that draws a 2  can replace the wildcard with the 2.  The wildcard can then be moved to a different spot.
