This is a card game for up to four players, or three players plus the computer. A deck of 32 cards is used with ace through eight in each of the four suits. All 32 of the cards are dealt out at the beginning of the game, eight to each player. On each hand, each player discards one card depending on the rules of the game - either the high card discard or the low card discard wins that trick. After eight tricks a new hand is dealt and play proceeds as before.
