Prší ("Raining" in Czech language),
is Czech variation of Mau-Mau card game. It is played with deck of 32 German cards (four card suits, values from 7 to Ace) and has almost identical rules with several differences.
- The players are dealt each four cards instead of five.
- Ace is the card that forces the next player to skip his turn, not 8. The player may play another Ace instead of skipping the turn. The obligation to skip the turn or to play another Ace is then passed to a next player.
- If a 7 is played, the next player, who would have to draw two cards, can pass this penalty on to the subsequent player by playing a 7 too. This subsequent player must then draw 4 cards. He too could play a 7, requiring the next player to draw 6, etc. The player who draws cards cannot play a card in the same turn.
- In some variations, King of Spades has the same effect as 7 except that the next player must draw 4 cards. He may play 7 of Spades to pass the penalty on to the next player who must draw 6 cards or play another 7, the penalty then goes to the subsequent player, etc. Similarly, King of Spades may be played on 7 of Spades instead another 7.
- A Queen can be played on any card (except 7 or Ace if it was played by previous player). The player who plays it then chooses a card suit. The next player then plays as if the Queen was of the chosen suit.
- In some variations, Jack cannot be played on any card (it has no special meaning).There is no word that a player must say if he has only one card left in his hand.
- Player who discard last card says "Prší".
