We used to play a game we called Queens - 3+ players. Everyone was dealt a hand of 7 cards, plus a dummy hand was dealt, after all the Queens were taken out and put into the main deck.
We started with lowest red (aces counted as low cards?) and players continued to play around the table if they could follow on this card in sequence. Once this 'run' was over the next player played their lowest black. If you managed to play a Queen it was put to the side of your 'played' cards.
I believe if you couldn't play you had to pick a card up from the main pack. The first player to play all their cards won - plus a bonus if your Queen was the same suit as the top card of the dummy hand as it was turned over at the end of the game. I recall it being good if you had a card below those being played, since you could start a new sequence with this one and no-one had the next card, meaning you could start another potential run with either your lowest black or red (a colour different to the one you'd just played).
This is all I can remember about this game, but I'm positive I've missed something important out in this description. Is anyone able to fill in my missing blanks, please?
