Secretly pick a card from your hand, then play it on one of four rows following two rules: your card must be higher than the last card in a row, and played next to the last card that's closest in number. If you play the sixth card, you take that row and all the points in it. That's when the game earns its name, as you're forced to "take five" cards. Taking feels bad! But, watching someone else pick up 5 cards full of "bulls" (negative points), is a fun experience.
