The non-dealer leads the play for each hand. If either player is unable to play a card without breaking 31, he calls "Go" after which the opposing player plays any other cards in his hand that are playable. The player who called "Go" then leads the next play, starting at zero. During the show, when the hands are scored, the non-dealer also leads.
During the play, each player places his own cards face up in front of himself, calling out the current total of played cards. The cards in each players hand remain separate at all times so the hand may be scored at the end.
The cards are shuffled with every deal.
These rules are based on the standard two player game. For three players, the game is played clockwise with the player to the dealer's left leading the play and the show for each hand, and the player to the left of the last person to play a card leading after a "Go".
