No Eights, A Card Game

This is a card game in which the eights are removed, hence the name. It is a game of memory and deduction.

Terminology

Setup

Remove the eights and jokers from the game. The game requires either 6 or 8 players. Every other person is on your team, in other words the people directly next to you are always on the opposing team. All the cards are dealt out evenly. A player may look at the cards in his or her hand.

Goal

To be one the team that has scored the most points after all the majors and minors have been downed.

Gameplay

The player to the left of the dealer gets to ask first. An ask consists of asking a player of the opposite team for a card that is part of a Chord for which you have a Note. It is VERY important to make sure you have a Note, otherwise this ruins the game (A lot of newbies make this mistake so be sure to make it clear to them). If the person you ask has the card, they must give it to you. If they do not it is their turn.

Playing

When it is your turn, you may also Play a Chord. To do this you must know where all of the Notes of the Chord are and all Notes must be in the hands of your teamates or yourself. If the other team is in possession of a Note they bust you. If you try to play a Chord but do not know where all the notes are you have played it incorrectly.
