I need to research this further...It's fairly simple. Each player gets 10 cards. You lay your highest card down and whoever has the highest card takes those two cards. If the number is tied when the two cards are lay down you double up. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. Oh yeah and after you win you draw. -------------------- Check out my Youtube!Add me on Facebook!
