Crazy Eights

Crazy Eight is a game where the objective is to get rid of cards from a player's hand. The default setting of this application is for six players with two standard 52-card decks. The scoreboard is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. If there are any special rules, they will be displayed in the center table on the right. Press the Play button to start the game (Fig. 1).
Figure 1
Players cut cards, and the player with the highest rank becomes the dealer (Fig. 2). Each player is dealt five cards. At the end of the deal, one card is turned over.
Figure 2
Players discard a card in clockwise order starting from the forehand. A player can discard a card of the same rank or suit as the upcard. If a player does not have any playable cards, they must draw a card from the draw pile until they obtain one. On your turn, to discard a card, select it from your hand and press the upcard. To draw a card, press the draw pile (Fig. 3).
Figure 3
Cards ranked as eight are wild cards and can be discarded at any time. If a player discards an eight, they must specify a suit. When it is your turn, a dialog box appears to select a suit. Choose one and press the OK button (Fig. 4).
Figure 4
Some cards are set up as special cards, as shown in the table below.
Jack Skip The next player is skipped.
Queen Reverse The order of play is reversed.
King Draw 2 The next player must draw two cards, but they can avoid drawing by playing a king. In that case, the following player must draw a duplicate number of cards.
If there are no more cards in the draw pile, the game proceeds without a draw. If a player cannot discard any cards, they must pass. To pass, press the Pass button (Fig. 5).

End of the Deal

Points 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 50 9 10 10 10 10
