SCAMPER a fun card game for clever people




A fun game for all ages, By Kirkby/Faulks

Game rules

Scamper: Is a game of cards where you need to make melds of sets (3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 of a kind etc.)  or runs of  3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8  of the same suit.  (As required for each round). Then discard all your cards to go out, players left with cards in hand count up the total and their score is tallied for each round. The player with the lowest score wins. Each round is different in set and run requirements.

The Decks: A minimum of two players is required however you can play any reasonable number of players  from 2 to 10. A minimum of two decks is required. Each deck has 52 cards and two Jokers. Basically, you need two decks for every two people playing. As you run out of cards in the pickup deck you can add another deck to the game or replay the round. (see: continuing play)

2-3  players 2 packs all cards plus 2 jokers

4-5  players 3 packs all cards plus 2 jokers

5-6  players 3 packs all cards plus 2 jokers

7-8  players 4 packs all cards plus 2 jokers

plus (2 packs for every additional 2 players)


Players deal for dealer = highest deals first then in sequence left to right.  (Jokers and Two's don't count for highest dealer), equal highest players draw again till one is decided. (First dealer receives - 20 off their score). Players are dealt eight cards for each round, the remaining pile is placed face down on the table, the top one is revealed as the discard card, the first player may pick this up or pass this card onto the player on their left (if passed on, then the receiving player is also given another card from the top of the pile face down). The player in play now picks up the next top pile card. But must then discard one card.


The player in play then takes a card for his/her turn. Once the initial meld is made for that round, the player (who's turn it is) in play can lay down their meld for that round if they have achieved and at the end of their turn discards one card he/she doesn't want. But must do this BEFORE playing a discard card. Any initial melds must be made before discarding a card. Once a card is discarded the round for that player ends, if a challenge is made it MUST be made before the next player plays. If found to be an incorrect play, the player is penalised additional 50 points, and the player MUST pick up the cards, if however the challenger is incorrect the challenger is penalised an additional 20 points.


Players make melds in sequence, acording to the round being played, the Ace is high   i.e. Ace, King Queen.


Advanced play  The Ace can only be used as high, deuces and jokers are wild.


All runs must be in suit, if you use wild cards:- you must have more natural cards than wild cards:-


A run, straight or sequence is a combination of playing cards where cards have consecutive rank values.


3 A  run of 3 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 2 natural and 1 wild card
4 A  run of 4 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 3 natural and 1 wild card
5 A  run of 5 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 3 natural and 2 wild cards
6 A  run of 6 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 4 natural and 2 wild cards
7 A  run of 7 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 4 natural and 3 wild cards
8 A  run of 8 can be all natural in the same suit in sequence or 5 natural and 3 wild cards

A set or group in card games is a scoring combination consisting of three or more playing cards of the same rank


3 A  set of 3 can be all natural in rank   or 2 natural and 1 wild card
4 A  set of 4 can be all natural in rank   or 3 natural and 1 wild card
5 A  set of 5 can be all natural   in rank or 3 natural and 2 wild cards
6 A  set of 6 can be all natural in rank   or 4 natural and 2 wild cards
7 A  set of 7 can be all natural in rank   or 4 natural and 3 wild cards
8 A  set of 8 can be all natural in rank   or 5 natural and 3 wild cards



Note: in a set the wild 2 can also be used as a natural card.


You cannot discard wild cards, or jokers you can use a deuce as a natural two in a run in its suit (i.e. 2, 3, 4 diamonds, or As in set of 8 could be 2,3,4,5,6 in Diamonds and 3 wild cards) but you cannot lay down three deuces as a set of three. 


Once melded you can add as many deuces or jokers to the run, or other player's melds of sets or runs and players can exchange natural cards for wild cards once they have made their meld and can add new sequences (sets or runs) once they are down, you can maintain the natural card to wild card ratio but normally once a meld is made any number of wild cards can be played for any pair or adding to other completed melds.  i.e. you can put 3 wild cards a on any run that has been put down or on any set that includes 2 natural cards.


Once a player has laid down their meld they cannot pick it back up or change their hand.  Players in turn can change wild cards from other players' hands but not from their own melds.


Once melded the player can immediately create more sets and runs, on their own or other player melds, however they must also discard one card (not a wild card) for the next player.  If going out however a wild card can be the last card discarded. Once the round is conclude the scores are tallied and added to previous scores and the next person in line deals the next round. Cards are shuffled and the next player deals, (If the player deals exactly the correct number of cards including the face card -20 is deducted for their score). However if there is a miss deal 20 is added to their score.


At no time can other players assist other players or advise which cards are available, if a player misses a pick up that is just tough luck! Penalty for offering advice is 20 points added to their score.


Players can go out (Scamper) at any time so long as they complete all melds and have a discard card (in this instance a wild card can be use as a discarded card).


Continuing play:  If all the cards are used and the last player cannot go out with a discard card, the game is forfeited and a replay of the round must be replayed. (Frustrating for players that are down but can't go out). You can add another pack if you wish but decide which rule to apply before the game commences.


Held cards (cards are not counted for any for melds already down) are added up for remaining players and tallied on the score sheet. After the all the rounds have all been played the lowest score wins.


Card scores

Joker                50 points each

Deuces              20 points each

Ace                   20 points each

King to 8            10 points each

7 to 3                  5 points each


Player with the lowest score after ten rounds wins, players can nominate how many rounds to use.

Players can suggest new combinations of melds. However 10 rounds is sufficient for about one hours play.


Sequence: players can lay down more than the required minimum.
Round one 2 Sets of 3  2 sets (minimum 3 in sequence)
Round two 2 Runs of 3  2 runs (minimum 3 of a kind each)
Round three 1 Set of 3 & 1 Run of 4 1 set of 3 (minimum 3 of a kind) and 1 run of 4 
Round four 3 Sets of 3 3 sets of 3 (minimum 3 of a kind each)
Round five 1 Set of 3 & 1 Run of 5  1 set of 3 (minimum 3 of a kind) and 1 run of 5
Round six 2 Sets of 3 & 1 Run of 4 2 sets of 3 (minimum 3 of a kind) and 1 run of 4
Round seven 1 Set of 3 & 1 Run of 7 1 set of 3 (minimum 3 of a kind) and 1 run of 7
Round eight 1 Run 4 & 1 Run of 5 1 run of 4 and 1 run of 5
Round nine 1 Run of 8   1 run of 8  
Round ten 1 Set of 8 1 set of 8

NAPLAN tests identify whether all students have the literacy and numeracy skills that provide the critical foundation for their learning, and for their productive and rewarding participation in the community. Students are assessed using common national tests in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy.
NAPLAN tests broadly reflect important aspects of literacy and numeracy in the Australian Curriculum adopted by each state or territory.
