    Pick your signal. Only you and your partner should know what this is. You do your signal to your partner when you have four of a number (or face card). If your partner says "signal" when you do your signal (without anybody saying "cut"), than you win the game. If someone says "cut" when you weren't doing your signal, then they are out.

    Know the point of the game. During the game, you can only have four cards. During each round, the dealer will flip up one group of four cards. You can take up to four cards, but you have to dispose of as many cards that you took, so that you remain with four cards throughout the game.
