Goal: Win all of the cards

(2-4 players)

Deal: Cards are dealt facedown one at a time to each player until there are no cards left.

Set-Up: Each player should gather their cards into a neat pile without looking at them or allowing another player to see their cards. 


1. Starting to the left of the dealer, every player lifts the top card out of their pile to be face up in the center of all the players. 

2. When the card flipped to the center is a Jack, anyone who can slap their hand down on the card and yell "Jack!" recieves the Jack and all the cards underneath it. 

4. If more than one player slaps their hand on the card, whoever does it first wins the pile

5. If a player slaps their hand when the card being played is NOT a jack, they must "burn" their top card by placing it in the center pile. 

6. If a player runs out of cards, they can try to get back in by winning the next pile, however if they cannot slap first on the next Jack, they are out. 

7. The player with all the cards at the end wins.
