A good card game that develops logic and attention. It is probably the second most popular card game in Russia after the Fool. Rules of the game are as follows.
The dealer is selected randomly. The deck is carefully shuffled and completely distributed between all the players. Cards are dealt strictly one at a time. Players must have an equal number of cards. For this reason, you can not play nine with 5 people.
The first player is the player, who has the nine of clubs. The player puts it on the center of the table and it is visible to everybody. The next player clockwise can put to the left of the nine of clubs - the eight of clubs or to the right of the nine of clubs - 10 of clubs or he can start a new row, put under the nine of clubs or on top of the nine of clubs any nine of another suit.
If the player does not have the opportunity to put any card, then his turn is skipped and the play goes to the next player clockwise, who should play a card according to the same rules.
The strategy of the game is that the player must prevent other players from playing their cards. The player who first gets rid of all his cards is considered the winner.
