The rules: The dealer deals seven cards to each player. The undealt cards are placed face down on the table, and the top card is turned face up and placed beside the stock to start the discard pile. Each player in must either play a legal card face up on top of the discard pile, or draw a card from the free stock. The following plays are legal: If the top card of the discard pile is not an eight, you may play any card which matches the rank or suit of the previous card (for example if the top card was the 10 of Spades, you could play any 10 or any Spade). An eight can be played on any card, and the player of the eight must nominate a suit. If an eight is on top of the pile, you must play either another eight or any card of the suit nominated by the person who played the eight. The first player who gets rid of all the cards wins.
Push your cards on the pile by holding and wiping to the pile, get new cards by tipping on the new cards deck.
