The Object: Earn the most points by making words with the cards in your hand.
The Deal: Shuffle all the cards before dealing. In the first round, deal 2 cards to each player and place the remaining cards face down to form a draw pile. Turn over the top card of the draw pile to begin a discard pile. The player to the dealer’s left goes first.
The Play: On your turn draw the top card from the draw pile or the discard pile and complete your turn by discarding one card. The play continues clockwise with each player drawing and discarding one card until one player can use all his/her cards to form a word, or group of words, and go out.
Going Out: After drawing, you can go out if you can arrange all the cards in your hand into allowable words (see definition) with one card remaining for a discard. Each card can only be used once. To go out, lay your words on the table in front of you and discard. After the first player goes out, everyone else has one more turn and must lay down any words they can at the end of the turn. You cannot use other players’ cards to make words. This is the end of round one. Each player’s words are scored and point chips are awarded.
