2. Also a little-known card game for four players. Each player is dealt three face-down cards as well as three face-up cards (not piled up). Players hold no cards in their hands, and the object of the game is to get rid of all one's cards. Play begins with the player to the dealer's left, who can play any of his three face-up cards by laying it out in the center of the surface. The next player (clockwise) must continue by playing a card of higher value, and so on until the pile is cleared, at which point play begins again with a low card.
The pile can be cleared in a number of ways. If any player does not have a card higher than the one facing him, he must either play a 'special card' (see below) or take the entire pile into his hand (at which point he may then play those cards out of his hand).
Four cards have special characteristics; when a two or ten is played, the pile is thrown out. These cards may be played *at any time*. A three forces the previous player to collect the pile. A seven card forces the previous player to put down a card less than or equal to seven (except if they play a 2, 3, or 10), at which point play goes clockwise again.
