Rules of the game

Deal 7 cards to each player and place the pack of remaining cards face down on the square below. The person on the dealer’s left starts and tries to match a card with one of the sides of the square in the middle of the page. If he or she can’t go they have to take another card. He or she can put this card down straight away if it matches, otherwise play passes to the next person. Play continues clockwise around the group. The first player with no cards wins.
