Suit: A set of cards consisting of four different suits of thirteen cards each – Spades, Hearts, Diamonds and Clubs.
Draw Pile: After the deal is served, the remaining cards that are not distributed are kept upside down in front of the players. These cards form the Draw Pile and when it is finished, the discard pile will be shuffled and substituted for the Draw Pile.
Ace: There is one ace for each suit (Spade, Hearts, Clubs and Diamonds). Ace can either be used as a lower or a higher card. It depends on the way one chooses to make a sequence. Example: ‘Ace-2-3’ or ‘Ace-King-Queen’.
