“Mean” might be too strong a word, but this is not a friendly game. It’s you versus the computer, and the program plays to win. You take turns playing ascending cards (from Ace to King) in the red area, trying to be the first to get rid of your pile of 26 red cards. At the start of every turn your hand is replenished to 5 cards. Meanwhile you bluff, block, and hide—and desperately try to keep your discard piles in order.

You can play using the keyboard or the mouse, or both.
