How to Play Donkey Card Game?
First, the dealer will give out 4 cards to each player. Then the aim is to collect 4 cards of the same rank. Unwanted cards can be passed onto to the players on the left. Also, each player will receive a card from the player on right. He/she can either keep it or pass it along again.
This will continue till a player has collected 4 cards of the same rank. Once a player has got the four cards, they will place the cards upside down without telling anyone and pick up an object. Rest of the players also have to pick up the objects once they notice that one player has picked up one object.
The player who is not able to pick up an object before they are finished will lose the round and they’ll get a D first. Similarly, the game will continue and if the same player is unable to pick up an object then O will be added after the D. If a new player doesn’t get it then he’ll get a D. The game will be continued until one of the players has lost six times and D O N K E Y is complete in the scorecard. The loser also has to say “eee-aww” three times.
