It's great fun, no matter how old you are. 
Bękart is our version of Donkey, a simple card game which can be played by two to four players.
The rules are simple:
1. The dealer deals all of the cards to the players.
2. Each player discards all pairs he has in his hand. 
3. The player who has the biggest number of cards in his hand allows the player on his left to draw one of his cards. If the card fits one of the cards the player has he can discard the pair and allow another player to draw a card. Then another player draws a card, etc.
4. Bękart card doesn't have a pair. The player who keeps it till the end of the game loses.
5. The winner is the first player to get rid of all their cards.
