What are the rules for playing the game? My grandkids lost the directions hence the question.
The rules are:
To collect as many pairs of awesome gifts as you can without getting stuck with the ugly sweater.
To play the dealer deals all the cards to the players. Players look at their cards and place any pairs they have face up in front of them.
Beginning with the youngest player each player takes a turn choosing a card from the hand of the player on their left but be sure they cant see what card they are choosing.
If the card selected makes a pair with a card in the players hand that pair is placed face up with the others.
The player who just had a card taken then takes a card from the player on their left and continues around.
You are able to shuffle the cards before a card is taken.
Players continue taking turns until the ugly sweater card remains. The player left holding that card in their hand looses.
The winner is the player with the most pairs.
