When a skip card is played does the player get to draw and lay down again, or is it the discard itself?
Discarding the Skip card is playing it. Once the player has selected who will miss the next turn, their own turn is now over.
A player never draws twice in one turn, and can only discard one card at most (though they can lay down and hit as many cards as legitimately possible).
