About this game

Chinese Ten is an Oriental fishing game. The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. At the start of
the game, each of the three players receives 8 cards and 4 cards are placed face up in the middle of the table.
The remaining cards form the stock pile.

The object of the game is to capture cards from the table. A numeral card from ace (1) to nine captures another
card if the values add up to 10. For instance, a three captures a seven, a nine captures an ace, and a five captures a five. Tens and picture cards can only capture cards of the same rank, so a jack can only capture another jack. Suits do not matter when it comes to capturing cards, but they do when scoring (see below).

At your turn you play one card from your hand. If this card captures a card on the table you take them both, otherwise your card is added to the cards already on the table. Whether you captured or not, the top card of the stock is turned face up. If this card captures a card from the table you take both. Otherwise the stock card is added to the table. After this the turn passes to the next player.

Note that each card can only take a single card from the table.

Special cases:
- If the initial layout contains three kings, three queens, three jacks, three tens or three fives, then the fourth card of that rank captures all three matching cards.
- If the initial layout consists of four kings, four queens, four jacks, four tens or four fives, then the dealer automatically captures the four of a kind.

These rules are necessary so at the end of play, no cards are left on the table.

Scoring:
At the end of play, the cards captured by each player are scored according to these rules:
- Red 2-8: Face value
- Red 9-king: 10 points each
- Red aces: 20 points each
- Ace of spades: 30 points

The match ends when a player reaches 1000 points. The player with the most points wins the match.

Red Frog Black Frog (Gob Dum Gob Dang - กบดำกบแดง):
The only difference in this variant is the scoring:
- Black 2-9: Face value
- Black 10,J,Q,K: 10 points each
- Ace of spades: 50 points
All other cards are worthless

I love this game, I usually play it just to relax after a hellacious day at work, but sometimes get irritated that one of the bots always gets all the higher scoring cards and leaves me with the lowest score... granted I don't expect to win every time but once in awhile would be nice!!!
