  1.  Fan Tan, or fancan tan is an early form of a card game long popular in China. It's a very simple game of pure luck that has many similarities to blackjack. It involves seven cards and each player have a specific goal - be it to win the game and get a straight or a four of a kind or a five of a kind or a half of a kind. There are no other goals than simply beating the person who has the lowest score.
  2.  The game works like this. There are ten players - six of these dealt with face down. 1 card is laid face up face down, also laid face up is the"queen". All the other cards are laid out face down so that each player may look at their cards - and then each player must pick a card and pass one to the left.
  3.  Once all the cards have been looked at, a person calls out"card", and if anyone chooses a card apart from the queen they need to play another card from the deck face up, called a seven. If there are no sevens in the deck, the individual must either call out"all sevens" or forfeit their turn. When a seven is called out the cards are turned over face up, and the"queen" is then dealt a new hand and placed into the cup. Then all the cards are dealt out into the cup again.
  4.  The rules are very easy - the more pairs you have in the deck, the more points you get. There are seven suits in the Fan Tan card game - they are spades, clubs, diamonds, hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs. You must always play with the identical suit. Aside from that, you must play a seven, a five, a four and an ace. Your aim is to get as many pairs as possible - the higher you are on the table, the better your chances of scoring lots of points.
  5.  Each player gets seven cards face down, and the dealer then deals three cards to each of the players in turn - this counts as one card for each of your three partners. One card is called the"queen", and the other sevens are considered your partners. When you're dealt your cards to the Fan Tan game, then you have to carefully review the cards before you play.
  6.  First, look at the seven cards to your right - these are your beginning sevens. These should be the exact same suit, unless you've got two of a kind. Then, look at the cards to your left - these are your starting five cards. All these must be of the same suit, unless you've got two of a kind.
  7.  After you have looked at your cards that are starting, you must immediately remove one card in the deck. This is called your"end card". Next, you should draw two more cards, one from the discard pile and one from the Fan Tan discard pile. You will now have a last deck, which you must now deal. https://mt-heaven.com/ The individual who has the most cards at the conclusion of the game is the player who ends up with the highest rank cards in the end. This is known as the"masters" table.
  8.  Once this is over, the individual who has the most cards at the end wins the game. It's a very simple procedure, but it can be tricky to keep an eye on your end cards. Additionally, it will help to know which cards are your"end cards" and which ones are the"beginning cards". When you learn how to Fan Tan, you'll quickly learn that your life will be easier when you know your win/loss standing at all times.
