Seven cards are dealt to the players. The person with the 7 of hearts plays first. Play continues clockwise with each player either playing or passing. No card may be played on a seven until the eight is also played. A seven, however, can be played at any time. Once the seven and eight is played, the next card in suit (at this point, a six or a nine) may be played. If a player is unable to play, they must pass; but if they can play, they must play.

The object is to be the first player to play all of his/her cards by playing up or down in suit from seven to ace and eight to king. [Wikipedia]
