Instructions

back to the game

Here are some browser tips when playing the game.

Selecting a page "refresh" in your browser will keep the current scores and deal new hands. Note that the scores are only saved after all hands are counted. If you exit the game before finishing a round the scores will not be saved.

Your hand is at the bottom of the screen (SOUTH). Your opponent's hand, the computer, is at the top (NORTH).

Deal

The first dealer is chosen at random then alternates between rounds. Your hand is sorted automatically for the lowest point score with any melds on the left and the remaining deadwood cards on the right.

Game Play

On the first draw after the deal you can select or reject the up-card by tapping the ✓ (draw) or ✕ (pass) buttons respectively. After the first draw tap on a pile, or the draw (✓) button, to draw a card then slide your discard selection from your hand onto the discard pile to play a card.

Lay Out

Tap the knock (✸) button before discarding when you're ready to "lay out" your hand. The knock button turns red to indicate you're going-down. If your point count is 10 or less (after discarding) then your cards will be layed out for you otherwise your knock will be cancelled and play will resume as normal.

Tap the knock button again to cancel a knock.

Lay Off

Any cards you hold that can be "layed off" to your opponent's melds will be played for you.
