The player on the left of the dealer takes the first turn by drawing the top card from the stockpile or Discard pile. The players take turns in a clockwise manner. After drawing the card, the player can replace it with his own cards of the set-up, if the player can reduce his points by doing the same. The replaced card is discarded to the discard pile.

A player can replace a face-down card with a face-up card. The round ends when one of the players has all his cards face-up. All other players get one more turn to replace their cards. After the last turn, the remaining face-down cards are turned up.
