Goal: Discard all cards in matching pairs.
9 cards are dealt. Move any card to another card if their ranks are the same. The two cards are discarded. Empty piles are filled from the deck.
The top card of the deck may also be turned up for use. It must be played before another card can be turned.
This is an extremely simple game to while away a few minutes.
