One player begins by drawing one card. This player then discards one card, placing the card face up next to the draw pile. This new stack of cards will be the discard pile. The next player can either draw a card from the draw pile or pick up the top card from the discard pile. To complete a turn, a player must draw or pick up a card and then discard.

To win, you must have five cards in your hand. Four of the cards must be factors of the fifth card and all of the cards must be different. For example, you cannot have two 2's in your hand. If the stack of new cards runs out before the game is over, shuffle the discard stack and place that stack face down.
