"Rules. The game consists of 48 cards. 4 cards containing the same picture make a set. Mix the cards well and distribute them. Who receives a set, puts it aside before they commence playing. Now the eldest begins. He asks one of the players for a card he wants to complete a set. If the other has got it, he has to give it up. The first now asks again for a missing card for a set, and continues to ask until he gets the answer 'No'. The one who has asked and had not got the card now in his turn asks, and so on. Who has got the most sets in the end, has won the game."
