The game is played with a single shuffled deck. Cards are dealt face down to each player in turn until all the cards have been dealt. The non-dealer goes first and puts a card face up onto what becomes the pile. If the card is a non-picture card, it is the next player's turn.
If it is a picture card, then the other player must play the following number of cards:
Jack - 1 card Queen - 2 cards King - 3 cards Ace - 4 cards
If no picture cards are played, then the hand is won and the player gathers the cards and puts them at the bottom of his deck. If a picture card is played, play immediately moves to the next person.
The objective of the game is to win all the cards.
As may be evident from the above description: no skill is involved at all, it is purely a game of chance.
