Quickfire Rules:

Each suit is ranked Ace (low) – King (high).

The aim of the game is to win Diamonds by bidding cards from your own hand against your opponent. Players make ‘closed bids’ for the top, face up, prize Diamond by selecting a card from their hand. These cards are then revealed simultaneously, and the player making the highest bid takes the competition card. Rules for tied bids vary. Either the competition card is discarded, or its value may ‘roll over’ to the next round so that two or more cards are competed for with a single bid card. (see Settings).

The cards used for bidding are discarded, and play continues with a new upturned prize card.

After 13 rounds the game is scored. Points are totalled equal to the sum of the cards won – Ace is worth one point, up to King worth 13 points.
