Ace is counted as one. All face cards are counted as 10. Other cards are counted as their face value. The beauty of this game is to play against a robot, and you have an option to see how it plays.

When the game ends, the player with minimum points of non-meld cards win.

 

You are assigned as the dealer for the first game. You deal the first card face down to your opponent and then one card to yourself until each player has 10 cards, then the next card face up on the table, and the remaining pack face down on the table as stock cards

 

The non dealer first has the option to take the up card or pass, if pass then you has the option to take the up card or pass. If a player takes the up card, he/she has to discard one card face up from his/her hand onto the table. On successive play, each player has an option to either take the latest up card or a face down card from the stock and then discard one card face up from its hand covering the last face up card on the table.

 

When a player holds less than than 10 points of deadwood (cards not part of a meld) after discarding, he is eligible to “knock” to end the game and both players show down their hands. A player with a lower points of all deadwood cards in his/her hand earn the score of the difference of deadwood points between the two hands. If the knocker wins and has no deadwood in its hand, he/she wins an additional bonus score of 25. If the non-knocker wins he/she earn an “undercut” bonus score of 25. The game is a draw if each player has equal deadwood points or neither one can “knock” and there are only two cards left in the stock cards.
