Game rules: There are between two and four players and 32 cards. Every player
always has a hand of three cards and one to three lives indicated by matchsticks.
Three more cards are placed face-up in the center. Whoever first reaches 31 points
wins the round. If no-one reaches 31 points, the player with the lowest point score
loses a life.
You get points for cards of the same suit: Rank cards are worth the same as their
number (7, 8, 9, 10). Face cards are worth 10 and aces are worth 11 points. Another
special card combination comprises three cards of equal points value - those make up
You can do one of four possible actions each round:
- Exchange one of your cards with one from the center
- Swap your entire hand with the three cards in the center
- Pass, if you don't want to make any card changes
- Knock, if to indicate the last round once you think that you will not be the player
with the lowest hand-score.
If you are the first to draw at the start of the round, you can chose to put your hand in
the middle and get another hand from the deck, or put three new cards from the deck
in the middle of the table.
The player with the lowest amount of points loses a round. Once all matchsticks are
gone (burnt), the player is considered to “swim” - this means they can continue to
play but losing one more round finally means “drowning” and losing the game.
However, you still have a chance of winning even while swimming! Whichever
player is left at the end, wins
