  2. Shuffle the deck, then reveal the top 3 cards next to the deck. Like so:

Available Actions

  1. Move a card from the bot row to the top row, reveal a new card
    • When the deck has one card left, flip it over, use it as a bot row card
  2. Move a card from the top row to the back of the deck
  3. Remove top row cards matching a valid combo (below) from the game
  4. Remove a top row card from the game

Combos and Points
When a combo is matched and the cards are removed from the game, you gain the number of points the combo is worth. The following are all possible game combos and their point values:

Pair ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀   [A+A] or [2+2] or [3+3].. 2 points
Chain ⠀[1+2+3] or [2+3+4] .. or [9+10+A] or [10+A+2] 3 points
Flush ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ any 3 cards of the same suit 3 points
Royal ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀         both chain and flush 7 points
Triple ⠀⠀⠀⠀      [A+A+A] or [2+2+2] or [3+3+3]..8 points

Whenever a single card is moved from the top row, reduce your points by 1.

The game is won if you score 40 points or more, but no reason to stop there!

This game is very satisfying.

15 day after, I'm still playing at least one game a day (often more)


That's high praise, thank you.
