    • Basic rules
      • All players start with 8 cards.
      • Match the cards with their value or their suit to discard them.
        • For instance, if the previous card dealt is the Queen of Spades, you must play either a spade or a queen.
        • An 8 can be played on any turn.
          • When you play an 8, you have the option to change suits.
          • If you don’t want to play your 8 too early, you can also draw a card.
          • Make sure you are not holding onto an 8 when the game ends as they will cost you 50 points.
        • If you cannot play a card, you must draw another card and skip your turn.
      • Be the first player do discard your entire hand to win the round.
      • Have the highest score at the end of 4 rounds to win.
    • Scoring
      • The winner’s score is based on the value of the cards the opposing players have on hand.
        • Whoever has the worst hand scores zero points in the hand AND sets the scores for everyone else in the game.
        • The winner scores the amount of points the last place player is holding.
        • The second and third place players score the difference between the pip value of the cards in their own hand and how much the last place player has in their hand.
          • If the last place player has 42 pips in their hand and you have 12 then you would score 30 points.
      • Card values:
        • Aces are worth 1 point
        • Face cards (kings, queens, and jacks) are worth 10 points
        • Eights are worth 50 points
        • Every other card takes on their value.
      • Your total game score is cumulative across rounds.
      • At the end of 4 rounds you can submit your score to add it to the leaderboard.
    • Strategy
      • Discard high value cards early on.
      • Keep your 8s on hand in the game until your lay options are limited.
        • If an 8 is the only card you can play early in the game, go ahead and grab a new card.
        • An 8 being one of your only remaining cards can be a tactical advantage as the game draws to a close, since it means you can lay on anything.
      • Do not leave your 8s on hand in the end game.
        • 8s carry a 50 point bonus for the winning player, so don’t give them that advantage.
        • Playing the 8 at that point might also buy you time.
      • If your hand has a dominant suit, play to the suit rather than to the value of the card.
        • If you play to the value, it will change the suit, which means you’ll have a harder time discarding most of the cards in your hand.
        • Playing with your suit means other players will be tempted to discard cards of that suit later on.
      • Try to keep your card holdings rather diverse (many different numerical values & 3 or 4 suits) until you are down to only holding a few cards left in your hand, so that you have a greater probability of being able to make a play.
        • Being heavy in a single suit means others are less likely to have that suit & are less likely to lay it.
        • Having many cards with the same numerical value will lower the odds you can match a number thrown by others (the more you have of a specific number the lower the odds anyone else has that number in their hand).
      • If a player plays an 8 and changes suit, see if you can change the suit once again on your turn. This will confound your opponents ability to discard their remaining cards.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like card shedding games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
