Setting up the Game
Playing the Game
The player to the left of the dealer goes first by taking their Aces and lying them face down on the table or they lay down an ace and try to sneak in another card by claiming that it is an ace. When the cards are laid down the player calls out what they have laid down, or rather what they are pretending to lay down. If the player played an ace and a another card they would still say "two aces" in hopes of sneaking the other card past the other players.
The next player to the left plays twos or whatever they try to pass off as twos.
Play continues to the left with each player playing the next highest card until king is reached. After the king is played the cycle starts over with the ace card.
If during play you suspect that someone is not being truthful or bluffing simple say "I Doubt It".
If someone doubts you must show the cards you just played. If you are in fact bluffing you will have to pick up all the cards played so far and add them to your hand, but if you were telling the truth all the cards go to the person who doubted you.
Whoever ended up with the pile starts the next round with the next highest card.
In the event that multiple players doubt a player at the same time the player closest to the doubted players left goes first.
Winning the Game
It is good when a player challenges
Near the end of the game more players will be bluffing and getting caught at it. This would be the time to play honestly if possible.
If you are only holding high cards and are in need of some low cards it may be wise to challenge a player when the pile is still mostly low cards. Do not try this when the pile is high or you'll end up with more cards than you can handle.
