Needed: 2-4 players; A standard 52 card deck; pen and paper for scorekeeping

Deal: Each player is dealt 7 cards, one card at a time.  The remaining deck is placed in the middle.  A card is flipped face up on the north, east, south, and west side of the deck.  If a king is flipped up during the setup, it is moved to a corner of the deck and another card is flipped up in its place.

Objective: The object of the game is to be the first player to play all his/her cards into the middle each round.

Game Play: The player left of the dealer is first to play.  Every turn begins with the player drawing a card from the center deck.  Cards can be played onto the faced up cards in the middle.  Cards are played in decreasing sequence with the opposite color suit.  For example, a red ace can be played on a black 2.  Players play as many cards as they want to each turn.   Players announce they are done to end their turn.  The kings start a new pile off the corners of the middle deck.  An entire pile can be moved when the bottom card of one pile is eligible to be played on the top card of another pile.  The open space left by the move can be filled with any card.  When a player gets rid of all the cards in his/her hand the round is over.

Scoring:  At the end of the round players score 10 points for each king left in their hand and 1 point for each other card still in their hand.  The game is played to an agreed upon amount such as 25.  Once a player hits 25 or more points, the player with the lowest score wins.

Rule:  If the middle deck runs out, play continues with players not drawing to start their turn.
