Card Game: Club 7

A card game I learned on a 50 mile hike in New Mexico. These rules apply to playing with Rook cards as well.

Number of players: 4

Object: Be the first to get rid of all your cards.

Deal: Deal out all of the cards equally. Person with the black 7 plays first and must put that card down on the table. Play then continues clock-wise.

Play: Cards will be placed on the table in four rows, each row its own suit (black, red, green, yellow). In order to play, cards must be played in this order:
  1. After the black 7 is played, all the other 7's must be played next
  2. 6's must be played next (in no particular color order)
  3. 8's may be played after all of the 6's are down
  4. Once the 6, 7, and 8 of each color are down for any suit, cards may be placed either up or down in no particular order for that suit.
If on your turn you are unable to follow these steps, the person on your left gives you a card of their choosing from their hand. The first player to get rid of his/her hands wins.
