The board is made up of 100 cells arranged in a 10x10 grid. Each card in the deck has two matching cells on the board except for jokers, which have four, and jacks, which have none.
Your hand shows the cards that you can use to capture or free cells.
The discard pile shows the last four cards played.
There is a list showing each player's name and color. It also show's which player's turn it is.
Click on any of your cards to select it. Then click on a matching free cell to capture it. A captured cell will change to the captor's color.
Free jacking is using a jack of diamonds or jack of hearts to free up a previously captured cell. You cannot free jack a joker.
Cell jacking is using a jack of clubs or jack of spades to capture any free cell on the board. You cannot cell jack a joker.
Winning is simple. Be the first player to capture five cells in a line and you win.
Lines can go left to right.
Or up and down.
They can even go diagonally.
Free joker cells can be used to complete a line for any player. After a joker cell is captured it can only be used to complete a line for its captor.
Joker cells cannot be free jacked or cell jacked.
Dead cards are cards that cannot be played because all of the matching cells have already been captured. These cards can be discard and exchanged for ones from the deck. This is done by clicking the dead card in your hand and then either dragging it to the discard pile or clicking the discard pile.
Only one dead card can be exchanged per play and you have to exchange it before capturing a cell.
