SETUP

     Note: If you have a lot of players, you will want to have more than one deck of cards. You can include as many decks as your want

  1. Pick a dealer
  2. The dealer will shuffle all the cards and deal out 8 cards to each player
  3. The dealer will then take the top card from the remaining cards and place if face up on the playing surface (becoming the first TOP card)
  4. The dealer will then take the remaining cards and place them  closely beside the top card to form a pick up pile
  5. The player to the left of the dealer will start
  6. The game will continue in a clockwise fashion

HOW TO PLAY
  1. Each player, one at a time,  is going to try and match the value of the top on the pile, using the cards in their hand. 
    1. A player can use any amount of cards to add up to the value of the top card
      1. Example: The top card is a 10. A player can use two 5s, one 2, one 7 and an Ace, one 10 or any other combination
  2. Once the player has reached the value of the top card, they discard those cards(in any order) face up onto the last TOP card, creating a new top card for the next player. This continues until one person is out of cards and becomes the winner
  3. Drinking Rules
    1. If a player cannot add up to the value of the top card:
      1. they drink
      2. pick up 2 cards from the pick up pile
      3. Continue 1 and 2 until they can add up to the top card
    2. If a player adds up to the total value of the top:
      1. Gives out a drink
    3. If a player uses less cards than the person before them to add up to the total of the top card:
      1. Gives out a drink
      2. Selects a player who must pick up 2 cards from the pick up pile
    4. If you are the first to get rid of all your cards, you are the winner and can give out three drinks
