Setting Up the Game
Playing the Game
The player to the left of the dealer starts by saying "stand" if they want to keep the card or "change" if they want to get rid of it.
If the player decides to change the card they slide it face down to the player to their left. That player must then exchange cards with the player wanting to change unless they have a king. If they have a king they lay the king down face up and show the rest of the players as proof. Having the king makes them immune for that round.
If this happens the player must then move onto the next player to the left and exchange cards with them.
The big gamble comes in when changing a card. Unless you are wanting to change an ace you always run the risk of changing for a lower card.
After the exchange has taken place the player who was forced to trade looks a their card. They then decide if they want to stand or change with the player to their left.
Play continues as such until it reaches back to the dealer. If the dealer wants to exchange cards they place theirs at the bottom of the deck and draw the top card.
Scoring The Game
Once a player loses all their counters they are out of the game.
