Each player is dealt 13 cards and they have to arrange them into proper sequences and sets with a successful declare requiring 2 sequences including a pure sequence. The first player to reach the objective is declared as the winner. Players can use joker cards (both the printed jokers and wild jokers) to meet the objective.
