Each player has a set of cards numbered 2 to 12. The other piece of playing equipment is a set of three dice. On your turn you roll the dice and if the sum of two of the numbers matches one of the cards still face up in front of you, you discard the card. If it doesn't, an opponent who does have a matching card can knock and claim the roll. They can also knock if you fail to notice that you have a matching card and pass the dice to the next player. If a player knocks incorrectly, they have to take back the top card from their discard pile and put it back in front of them. The hand is scored when one player has got rid of all their cards.
You think I am making this up, don't you? Would that I were. If you have friends who are incapable of adding together two small numbers and wish to parade the fact in public, there is a game here, albeit a bad one; if you don't, there isn't. Some bastard recommended this one to me and if I remember who it was, there will be blood spilled.
