The objective of the game is to create sequences, or sequences and sets. For a valid declaration, there should be at least two sequences out of which at least one must be a pure sequence. After arranging your cards, you can finish a deal by discarding the 14th card to the “Finish Slot” and then declaring your hand. If your declaration is valid, you will be the winner of the deal.
Play: A random toss is made to decide which player will make the first move. Then cards are dealt and each player gets 13 cards. The remaining cards from the deck form the closed deck. The cards discarded by players form a part of the open deck, which is kept face up. On their turn, each player has to pick a card and then discard an unwanted card.
