The purpose of the game is to get rid of all cards in a hand.
A deck of 36 cards is used, from 6 to Ace.
At the beginning of the game each player gets 5 cards.
There are no trump suits in the game.
The deck is laid in the middle of the table.
The first move is made by a player who has more points in his hand or won the previous game.
He lays any card.
The next player can cover this card with a card of the same suit.
It is only possible to lay a card of the same value if it is a six that is covered.
If a player does not have a required card, he has to take cards from the deck until he takes out a card required or the deck comes to the end.
If there are no more cards in the deck, the upper card of a pile of open cards is taken away and left open on the table, the rest of the cards are turned over and serve as a deck again.
Some cards require certain actions from the next player after they have been played:

6 take 2 cards from the deck and pass a move.
7 take 1 card from the deck and pass a move.
Ace pass a move.
Queen is a trump. It can cover any card, moreover, the player who has laid a queen can order any suit. The next player passes his move.
