The card face down in the center of the table is the Stock pile. The card partially visible below the stock pile is the joker (wild card) — all the cards of that rank regardless of the suit can be used as jokers. The card face up on the right side of the table is the Discard pile.
When it is your turn, you must pick one card either the top card of discard pile or the top card of stock pile. Now you have 14 cards. Examines the 14 cards and decide the card which is least important for forming runs and sets. Put the least important card face up on the discard pile. For the next player this card becomes the top card of the discard pile.
When you want to declare, instead of discarding unwanted card on the discard pile, you discard it on the box “Tap to throw card and declare.”
