• The dealer distributes six additional cards, face down, one at
a time, to each player. Players are allowed to look at these
six cards. Each player selects three of these cards (which
become his/her 3UP cards) to place face-up on top of
his/her 3DOWN cards (with one face-up card on each
face-down card). Each player should now have three cards in
his/her playing hand, as well as six cards in his/her 3UP
3DOWN® pile.
• The dealer places the remaining cards face down in the
center of the playing area, creating the draw pile.

BEFORE PLAY
• After shuffling the deck, the dealer distributes three cards,
face down, one at a time, to each player. Players are not
allowed to look at these 3DOWN cards.
• Play occurs in a clockwise direction as cards are discarded,
one at a time, in the discard pile. To play a card, the value of
the card must be equal to or greater than the value of the
card in the discard pile (though cards do not have to be
played sequentially). Also, you can choose to play multiples
of the same card during your turn.
• If you have a card in your hand that you can play, you must
play. If you can’t play, you must pick up the cards in the
discard pile and add them to your playing hand.
- You are not allowed to play the cards you pick up until
your next turn.
• As long as there are cards in the draw pile, you must finish
each turn with at least three cards in your hand. If you have
more than three cards in your hand when you finish your turn
(because at some point you had to pick up the cards in the
discard pile), you are not allowed to take a card from the
draw pile.
• The “Clear”, “Clear + 1”, and “Clear + 2” cards are greater in
value than all numbered cards. When you play a “Clear” card,
the cards in the discard pile (including the “Clear” card) are
removed (or, “cleared”) from play, and your turn ends. When
you play a “Clear + 1” card, the discard pile is cleared, plus,
you get one additional play. When you play a “Clear + 2” card,
the discard pile is cleared, plus, you get two additional plays.
- Three or more of the same-numbered card played
consecutively (by the same or different players), act as
a “Clear” card, and the discard pile is removed from
play.
- If the discard pile is empty, a player may choose to play
any card from his/her playing hand.
• You are not allowed to play from your 3UP 3DOWN® pile
until the draw pile is gone, and until you have discarded the
cards in your playing hand; once this occurs, you can play
your 3UP cards, one at a time - or as multiples - on your
turn. If you have to pick up the cards in the discard pile, you
can’t play any of your remaining 3UP cards until you have
played all of the cards in your hand.
• Once you have played all of your 3UP cards, you can flip
over and play one 3DOWN card on each turn. If you are
unable to play your 3DOWN card and have to pick up the
cards in the discard pile, you can’t look at or play any of
your remaining 3DOWN cards until you have played all of
the cards in your hand.
- You do not need to reveal your 3DOWN card to the other
players if you are unable to play.
• You win when you are the first to play your final 3DOWN
card!
OPTIONAL VARIATIONS TO RULES OF PLAY
• Though play is complete as soon as one player discards all
of his/her cards, the game can be continued as the other
players discard their remaining cards.
• You may choose to disregard the rule that “if you have a
card in your hand that you can play, you must play.” Thus,
even if you have a card that can be played, you may choose
to draw a card from the draw pile.
• A “1” card can be used as a “reverse” card, which switches
the direction of the game play (i.e., from clockwise to
counterclockwise).
• A point system can be implemented across multiple games
to determine the ultimate champion (by adding together the
face value of the cards that each player has in his/her hand
at the end of each game. Note: “Clear”, “Clear + 1”, and
“Clear + 2” cards add 15, 20, and 25 points, respectively, to
a player’s total). The player with the lowest overall score is
the winner.
• Once the 3UP 3DOWN® cards are set up, randomly select
players to switch 3UP 3DOWN® piles; or, allow players to
select cards from their own hand as the 3UP cards for
another player.
• If four of the same-colored cards are played consecutively
(without the the discard pile being cleared), the player of the
fourth card may choose to substitute one card from his/her
playing hand with one card from his/her 3UP pile.
DEFINITIONS
3DOWN Cards: Three face-down cards dealt to and set in
front of each player. These cards may not be looked at or
played until the draw pile has been exhausted, and until you
have discarded your playing hand and your 3UP cards.
3UP Cards: Three face-up cards that each player sets on
top of his/her 3DOWN cards (with one face-up card on each
face-down card). These cards may not be played until the
draw pile has been exhausted, and until you have discarded
your playing hand.
3UP 3DOWN® Pile: A player’s 3UP cards placed on top of
his/her 3DOWN cards.
Draw Pile: Collection of cards remaining after the dealer has
distributed cards to each player.
Discard Pile: Collection of cards that have been played (i.e.,
discarded) throughout the round.
Multiples: Two or more cards of the same value.
Clear Cards: There are three types of Clear cards: "Clear",
"Clear + 1", and "Clear + 2". When any of the Clear cards is
played, the cards in the discard pile (including the Clear card
variant) are removed (or, “cleared”) from play for the
remainder of the game. Clear cards are greater in value than
all numbered cards.
- Clear: The discard pile is cleared, and the player’s turn
ends.
- Clear + 1: The discard pile is cleared, plus, the player of
this card must discard one additional card before
completing his/her turn, though the player has the option
to discard multiples for the “+1” play (e.g., after clearing
the discard pile, the player could play two or more “4”
cards).
• After the “Clear +1” card is played, the player has the
option to draw a card from the draw pile prior to the
“+1” play.
• Note: If multiple “Clear + 1” cards are played at the
same time, the player only receives one “+1” play
(e.g., the “+1” play from each card do not combine to
create the equivalent of a “Clear + 2” card).
- Clear + 2: The discard pile is cleared, plus, the player of
this card must discard two additional cards before
completing his/her turn, though the player has the option
to discard multiples for each portion of the “+2” play.
• After the “Clear +2” card is played, the player has the
option to draw a card from the draw pile prior to the
“+1” play, and then again prior to the “+2” play.
• Note: If the “Clear + 2” card is played from the 3UP
3DOWN® pile, and the value of the second card
played is less than the value of the first card played,
the player must pick up the cards in the discard pile
according to the RULES OF PLAY.
