Make three poker hands (see next page for hand rankings) and place them face down in front of you.
The first hand has to be with three cards, which has to be your worst hand. The second two hands are five cards each with the last hand being your best hand.
If players do not order their hands correctly they lose 5 points, no other points are counted and there is a new deal.
Count one point for each hand won. Win all three hands and you performed a sweep and get two bonus points, get additional bonus points for hands with four of a kind or higher.
The first player to get to 30 points with jokers or 20 points without jokers wins.
