**Scoring During Play
**

A player who makes any of the following scores during the play pegs them immediately:

**Two For Doing Him **

If the start card turned over at the commencement of the hand is a Jack, the dealer pegs, “2 for doing him”.

**15 **

If you play a card which brings the total to 15, you peg 2 claiming, “fifteen two”.

**31 **

As mentioned above, if you play a card which brings the total to exactly 31, you peg 2.

**Pair **

If you play a card of the same rank as the previous card (e.g. a King after a King) you peg 2 for a pair.

**Pair Royal **

If immediately after a pair a third card of the same rank is played, the player of the third card scores 6 for pair royal.

**Double Pair Royal **

Four cards of the same rank played in immediate succession. The player of the fourth card scores 12.

**Run **

A run, or sequence is a set of 3 or more cards of consecutive ranks (irrespective of suit) – such as 9-10-Jack or 2-3-4-5. The cards do not have to be played in order, but no other cards must intervene. Score equals to a number of cards in a run.

**Last Card **

If neither player manages to make the total exactly 31, whoever played the last card pegs 1.

**The Show **

All of the cards that were put down during the play are now retrieved and score for combinations of cards held in hand. First, the

**15 **

Any combination of cards adding up to 15 pips scores 2 points. For example, King-Jack- Five-Five would count 8 points (four fifteens as the King and the Jack can each be paired with either Five). This combination would be marked as, “fifteen: eight”.

**Pair **

A pair of cards of the same rank score 2 points. Three cards of the same rank contain 3 different pairs and thus score a total of 6 points for pair royal. Four of a kind contain 6 pairs and so score 12 points.

**Run **

Three cards of consecutive rank (irrespective of suit), such as Ace-2-3, score 3 points for a run. A hand such as 6-7-7-8 contains two runs of 3 (as well as two fifteens and a pair) and so would score 12 altogether. A run of four cards, such as 9-10-J-Q scores 4 points (this is slightly illogical; you might expect it to score 6 because it contains two runs of 3, but it doesn’t. The runs of 3 within it don’t count, you just get 4), and a run of five cards scores 5.

**Flush **

If all four cards of the hand are the same suit, 4 points are scored for flush (only in hands, not in

**One For His Nob **

If the hand contains the Jack of the same suit as the start card, you peg One for his nob. After a

Finally, the dealer exposes the four cards of the crib and scores them with the
