How to Play

Everyone is dealt three cards then they take turns picking up then discarding a card, aiming to get as close to 31 points - in a single suit - as they can, before stopping the bus. You can also make 3 of a kind for 30 points! Aces are high (11) and picture cards (J Q K) are worth 10.

On your turn (when the bus is at your stop):
• Tap the deck to draw a card, or tap the waste to pick up the top card.
• If you think you've got a good score, now tap the bus stop to 'Stop the Bus'!
• Then tap a card from your hand to discard it, leaving you with three.
The bus then moves on to the next player.

Note that you can't stop the bus on the first circuit, and once someone stops it, everyone else gets one more turn before the cards are revealed.

The single player with the lowest score loses a token - when they lose all three they are out of the game! If it's a draw for last place, no-one loses a token. Then you are scored based on your hand and rank (1st, 2nd, 3rd) and the cards are shuffled and dealt again. The player who came 1st gets to start in the next round.

Scoring
Your hand score is the highest score with one or more cards of the same suit.
e.g.
10♣ 2♣ 5♣ scores 17♣
3♠ 5♠ 10 scores is 10♦ (the 3♠ and 5♠ only score 8 and are ignored)
2 2♠ 2♣ scores 30 (three of a kind)

A Note on Multiplayer
In multiplayer, there are always 4 seats. Any unused seats are filled with computer players - even if someone leaves the game, they get replaced by a computer player. However, the game ends when there is only one human player left on the bus.
