This game has a standard deck of 52 playing cards. All the cards are dealt out to the players, and there can be any number of players.

The game goes like this:

First the player who has the Ace of Spades has to start the game by playing that card. Then each player plays a card of their choice matching the suit that was selected. If they already have a card in front of them, it's discarded first.

If any player doesn't have cards of the selected suit then he plays any card of his choice and then the player with the highest valued card will take all the played cards and add them to his hand, and then start a new round.

The game continues until only one player has cards remaining. That player is the winner.

Does anyone recognise this game?

I've found several references to it online as being called "Bhabhi":

Also, someone on BoardGameGeek really likes it, so it must be bona fide:
