Jolly is a card game for two to four players and is played with two 52-card decks and six jokers. At the start of the game each player receives 13 cards. The remaining cards form the deck. There is no set number of rounds, as a defined point target must be reached over the course of the game (100, 125, 150, 175, 200, 225, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450 or 500 points).
The aim of the game is to form combinations with the hand cards and score as many points as possible when laying them. The combinations can be either groups (three or four cards of the same value, but different suits) or sequences (at least three like-suit, consecutive cards).
The game includes jokers, whereby the jokers can take the place of any card in a combination. However two jokers cannot be used consecutively in a sequence.
