Your goal is to get the highest scoring hand you can, either by getting cards of the same rank or same suit. The value of your hand is calculated by adding up the total of your cards in any one suit. Regular cards are worth their number, face cards are worth 10 and Aces are worth 11, but they only score if they are in the same suit. You can also make a hand of three cards with the same rank, like 8-8-8 or J-J-J. This is always worth 30.5 points, regardless of the number on the card.

To change cards, swap a card from your hand with a card from the extra hand in the center of the board. If you think you have a strong hand, you can pass. This means every other player gets one more turn, and then you all show your hands. You can also swap all three cards from your hand with the three cards on the table, but this also makes you pass.

The person with the lowest score loses a life and then the next round starts. Can you knock out all of your opponents and win the game?
