The game contains 80 Mer cards divided into five colors. The five suits are represented by different colors and icons. Each suit has one card of each value; a higher card beats a lower card of the same suit - from highest (15) to lowest (0).
Depending on the number of players, a number of cards of a number of suits will be shuffled. Players can decide in advance to play as a team, or individually. Each player will receive 10 cards to create their hand. Clockwise, each player brings a card, chosen from their hand, to create a trick.
In each trick, one suit will be stronger than the others (the trump suit). Any card in that trump suit beats all cards not in the trump suit. A "Sea Change" will change the trump suit in the middle of a trick when a player matches the value of the last card played.
Players try to win tricks containing positive point cards and avoid negative point cards. *Important: During tricks, 0s are not worth any points. At the end of the trick, check which suit is the trump. The 0 of that suit, and only that suit, is now worth 5 points. All other 0s are worth no points.
The player with the highest score at the end of the round wins 1 victory point. The game ends when a player has won 3 VPs.
