some playing cards

For 2 or more players.

Shuffle a normal deck of cards (without the Jokers) and deal five cards to each player. Place the remaining cards face down in the middle of the table. Left of dealer goes first. Each player looks at his cards and tries to make pairs, trebles or four of a kind. Players then choose whether to discard any or none of the cards in their hand. Players then draw the same number of cards discarded so as to maintain five cards in their hand. Discarded cards are placed on the bottom of the pack. Players check their new cards to see if their hand can be improved. Each player reveals his hand. The winner is the one with the highest hand from the following and wins that numbers of points shown. If two players have equal hands then the higher ranked set wins e.g. a pair of sevens beat a pair of twos (ace is low).

Four of a kind – 8 points
Full House (treble + pair) – 6 points
Treble (three of a kind) – 4 points
Two Pairs – 3 points
One Pair – 2 points
Junk – 0 points

At the end of each hand the pack is not shuffled and the dealer passes to the left. The first player to 20 points wins the game.
