Rules of play
Prerequisite: Familiarity with the digits 0 to 9 and the ability to perform addition of two digits. Preferably, the players should be able to distinguish between ones-digit and tens-digit and be also familiar with the numbers from 1 through 100.
Ages: 7 and up.
Participants: 2 to 6 players.
Cards in game: All numerical cards; inclusion of any of the “free” cards (“Free” Card) and inclusion of the “100” card, are optional.
Object of the game: To discard all cards in a player’s hand.
Set-up: Same as games 1 and 2.

Basic rules of play:
Like in games 1 and 2, except basic rule 1 - each player in turn may discard up to 3 cards, provided each card matches the previously discarded card by:
a. A common ones-digit; OR
b. A common tens-digit; OR
c. A common sum of digits.
For example, upon the card “23” the player may discard any card with a ones-digit=3 (i.e. “3”, “13” … “93”), or a tens-digit=2 (i.e. “20”, “21” … “29”), or a sum of digits = 2+3 = 5 (i.e. “5”, “14” … “50”).
Therefore, upon the card “23” the player may discard “27” (common tens-digit=2), may keep his turn and discard “57” upon the “27” (common ones-digit=7) and discard “66” upon the “57” (common sum of digits=12), i.e. discard the sequence “27”»“57”»“66”.
Note: The “Sum of Digits” card might be useful.

Special cards rules:
1. A player ending his turn by discarding a Monumeral (Monumeral ©) obliges the following player to choose one of two options:
a. Discard only a Monumeral, thus obliging the next player, and so on; or
b. Lose a turn and draw three extra cards from the draw pile, and then the next player is free to continue the game according to the basic rules of play.
For example, upon the card “23” player A discarded the sequence “53”»“59”»“9”, player B discarded “7” and player C had to draw 3 cards from the draw pile because he did not discard a Monumeral. Now, upon the “7” player D may discard up to 3 cards according to the basic rules of play.
2. A player discarding a Twinumeral (Twinumeral ©) may successively discard upon it all cards with this same digit, by order of his choice (even more than 3 cards).
For example, upon the card “23” a player discarding the sequence “27”»“57”»“66” may keep his turn and discard upon it all cards with the digit 6.
3. “Free” cards (“Free” Card) are used as in game 2.
4. The “100” card (The “100” Card) is used as in game 2.

End of game: Same as games 1 and 2.
