Bum v.1.0.0


Bum has many alternative names: Scum, Rich Man Poor Man, President, Landlord, Emperors and Scum, Root Beer, Warlords and Scumbags, Butthead, Capitalism; in France it is Trouduc or Trou du Cul; in Germany: Einer ist immer der Arsch; in Hungary it is Hûbéres (meaning vassal); in the Netherlands it is Sluitspieren or Klootzakken. The player to dealer's left starts by leading (face up) any single card or any set of cards of equal rank (for example three fives). Each player in turn must then either pass (i.e. not play any cards), or play face up a card or set of cards which beats the previous play. The aim is to get rid of all your cards as soon as possible. The first player who gets rid of her cards is called the King. The last player left with cards is called the Bum. The Bum, in the next turn, has to offer her highest card to the King and take in exchange an unwanted card by the King.  If you're new to climbing card games, start here!.
