This is a suite of three matching card games, the Parliament, the Domino and the Sichi Narabe. Parliament is also known as Sevens, Fan Tan or Card Dominoes, and probably yet other names, and it involves getting rid of all your cards by playing them to a layout. In the basic game this layout starts with the 7 of each suit and grows outward towards the king in one direction and the ace in the other. In the French variant of Domino, the layout can be started with a rank of the first player's choice, and the other suits must then begin with the same rank. In Sichi Narabe, which is the Japanese variant of the game, a player can pass even if he/she is able to play, up to three times, and the sevens must be put in the layout before any other card.
