A very simple, ancient Italian card game. It is popular to this day in Italy, Germany, and Scandinavia. It is played with a 40-card deck composed of number and picture cards. There are two of each card (i.e. 20 distinct cards).
Each player is dealt a single card. The goal is to avoid holding the lowest valued card at the end of a turn around the table. Each player may exchange cards with the previous player without knowing what the other player holds.
