This game is a variation of two-hand Crazy Eights, except that the scoring format is like Gin Rummy. The standard 52-card pack is used and the cards count as follows: each eight, 20 points; ace, 15 points; face cards, 10 points; lower cards, pip value. The first player to reach 100 points wins a game. The score sheet is set up for three simultaneous games. The first hand won by each player is scored only in Game 1. The second hand won is scored in Games 1 and 2. The third and all subsequent wins are scored in all three games. When any of these games ends, Game 4 may be opened up, and so on.This game is a variation of two-hand Crazy Eights, except that the scoring format is like Gin Rummy.
