The Game is very simple:
1- One of the two players will deal four cards for each, and in the beginning of the game he will include the table with four cards two.
2- Each player will throw one card on the table until he is out of cards, then the dealer will deal again four cards each but not for the table.
3- Player goal is to take from the ground as many cards as he can. After the Dealer is out of cards. Each pile the players took through the game will be counted and the player who got the most cards will get 30 points. The other will be zero.
4- What the player can take from the table is either there is on the table a similar card to what he has, or group of cards representing the sum in numbers to a card of his hand, the J, Q, and K are not included in the sum:
– e.g. there are four cards on the table A (have a value of 1), 7, K, and 8; if you have card 8 in your hand you will take 3 cards, the 8 and the 1+7 which equal the 8. or if has 9 he can take 8+1. If you have card K in your hand you will only take the K from the table.
5- If there is (card J or Diamond 7) in your hand you will take all the cards from the table.
6- when the table is empty and next player throw one card of his hand (of course he will be careful not to throw J or diamond 7, these are special as demonstrated), If the other player have similar card in his hand he will take the card from the table as additional bonus as called by Egyptians “Basra”.
7- the other situation to take “Basra” is when all the cards on the table sum to one card in his hand in addition to any similar card have the same sum value:-e.g. the table cards are (10, 5, 4, 1) and the player has 10, or (8, 7, 1) and the player has 8 … etc.
8- Also in the previous situation happens and the player has diamond 7 he will take the cards on the table as “Basra”. Diamond 7 is special card that has 2 roles called by Egyptians “Al Komi”; the other name of the same game; it will take basra of any value or as the J take all the table.
9- Be careful not to hold the J or Diamond 7 as last card in your hand as the other player may take the whole table and burn your J or Diamond 7, as he will take either of them as “Basra” next time he play.
10- If the dealer is out of cards, its time to count the cards which only the player with most of the cards will take 30 points. Also the number of Basra taken by the two players will be counted and both will take the Basra bonus which is 10 points and Jack basra is 30 as will as koomi basra (the koomy was burned and took basra by any card).
11- Several rounds will continue in which the two players will exchange the dealing role and the other player will start first until the target score is reached, and the winner announced.
