Card Game Rules

Rolling Stone, or Enflé, a classic card game for four players. The deck for this game is 32 cards with the 2s through 6s removed. Aces are high and 7s are low. The objective of Rolling Stone is to be the first player to lose all of their cards.

Set Up

Before gameplay can begin, a dealer must be selected. To do so, players must choose a random card from a shuffled deck. The player with the lowest card becomes the dealer. Ties are broken with repeated drawings. The dealer shuffles the deck and then passes out eight cards to every player.

How to Play

The player left of the dealer begins by playing any card. Going clockwise, players must follow suit. If a player cannot follow suit, they must pick up the cards played, add them to their hand, and begin a new round.

If play gets back to the original player and everybody follows suit, then the person who played the highest card takes the pile and begins a new round.

The player who gets rid of all of their cards first wins the game.
