To start the game, each player is dealt a hand of cards. The dealer then sets up the remainder of the deck face down in the middle of the players. If you are playing card games online, there might be other rules to follow.
The cards will then be dealt three at a time 3 times to all players. To start the deal, deal each player three cards face-down in front of them, creating three separate piles. Then deal an additional three cards, one on each pile, face-up to each player. Finally, deal each player 3 more cards to the side face-down.
These last three cards will be picked up and will be their hand. Then, each player can trade cards from their hands with the faceup piles in front of them. The strategy here is to put high cards and 2s and 10s on the face-up piles; also important to know is that in this game, Ace is always high, and suites do not matter; only numbers determine rank.
If the last card from a player’s hand matches a card in their piles, they may play the card in front of them as well.
