How to Play
  • Shuffle the cards and deal 7 to each player. (If playing with more than 3 players you will need 2 decks.)
  • Turn over 2 cards from the remaining pile so they sit face up in between the players.
  • On "go!" both players try to get rid of their cards by them on top of an interval which is either 1 higher or 1 lower.
  • If at any point both players are stuck, 2 more cards can be drawn from the pile to start a fresh round.
  • The winner is the first to get rid of all their cards.
To assemble this game:
  • Print out the game cards (pages 3-8) double-sided.
  • Trim along the dotted lines.
