Unless I'm missing something, the official English rules lack a bit of clarity about the important concepts of "closest" & "gap".

Cards are numbered 1 to 100.

When comparing played cards to the target card, the closest card wins, with ties broken by the higher card. So, if 97 is the target, then 100 is closer than 92. However, is 1 closer than 91? In other words, do numbers wrap around at 100, or is the closest card to 100 always less than 100?

A simple case:

The target card is 99. The two cards defining the gap are 97 and 3.

Lets say players show cards 96, 1, 27.

Which player card is closest to the target card? Which player card(s) are "in the gap"?

What makes you think that cards "wrap around"?

From reading the German rules the answers are:
96 is closest
27 is in the gap
1 is not in the gap.

That is indeed the way we've always played it.

I'm not entirely sure what prompted my original question. Maybe playing 11 nimmt! too much.
