Use a 52-card deck, and set any Jokers that came with your deck aside, and don't use them.
The top card of the deck should be dealt face-down to each participant.
Examine the 10 cards you now have. Sort the items into any "melds," which may be runs or sets.
An unhelpful card from your hand should be chosen and placed face-up in the discard pile.
When every card in your hand is a meld component, and none of them is mismatched, this is known as "gin."
