Card Sort Options

Normal - Sort cards from the lowest point value to the highest. Useful for determining sets
Group - Sort cards by suit and then by points. Captures most combinations of cards without having to manipulate
Manual - Allows the player to order the cards anyway they want

Manual sorting allows to select one card with a left mouse click, then right mouse click where you want the card to move

It also allows you to drag and drop the card as well

Animation, Cues and options
Animation and sound are used to show when cards are picked from the deck or discard pile for both you and your opponent. You can control the speed of the animation

as well as whether sound is turned on or off.


Team Play - Switching

In the team play option, at the end of the game, the current player has the ability to swap their places with one of their team members that is kibbtzing them.
First thing they must do is click on the Kibbers icon to get a list of kibbers







Then the player clicks on the team member they want to swap places.
They will receive a dialog window to confirm their choice.









After clicking Yes to the dialog, the player and kibbitzer are now swapped.
The player is now the kibbitzer, and the kibbitzer is now the player.





End Hand Layout






At the end of a hand, after your opponent knocks, you have the opportunity to reduce your deadwood by playing one or more of your cards on your opponent's cards.

To do this, first left mouse click on the card you want to move. In this case, you have a 5 of Diamonds to play on your opponents run of diamonds.








Once you have selected your card, then click on the run or set you want to add your card to. In this case, it would be the A-2-3-4 of Diamonds.

Once you do this the card is moved, and your deadwood score is decreased.
