RULES: One player shuffles the cards, deals five to each player, and places the rest of the deck face-down in the center of the table. Each player then discards pairs of matching cards, that is, pairs of cards from the same set. Each discarded pair is shown to the other players so they can check for errors.
After all matching pairs have been discarded, play begins with the player to the left of the dealer and moves to the left. When it is her turn, a player asks the player on her right for a card with specific number. For example, she may say, “Give me a 1/2 ,” or “Give me a ¾.” If the player who is asked has such a card, she must give it to the player who asked for it. If the asked player does not have such a card, then the player who asked must take a card from the deck.
In either case, if pairs are formed, they are shown and discarded. The first player to run out of cards is the winner. Two players may run out of cards on the same play and tie as winners.
