There are no betting rounds during the play.

Instead, the game is scored in points.

OFC is played with a dealer button.

The player to the left of the button acts first, and the action moves clockwise.

Once a player completes his or her turn, the other player can see the arrangement, and the next player starts his own arrangement.

After the first turn, there continues 4 more rounds.

Players get 3 cards and must use only 2 cards, and discard 1 card.

Once you place cards and complete your turn, you can’t move it to a different row later. There are no take backs.

OFC is played per point, so scoring of the final hands is done on a point basis.

The most common OFC scoring bonus is the “scoop bonus.”

If you beat an opponent’s top, middle, and bottom, you win an additional three points.

The first objective of OFC is to make a ‘qualifying’ hand.

The bottom hand must be at least as good as the middle hand, and that the middle hand must be at least as good as the top hand.

If your hand has failed to qualify, then your top, middle, and bottom are all marked as zero.

Middle bonuses start with +2 for three-of-a-kind, going up to +50 for a royal flush.

Bonuses for the top hand start with +1 for a pair of sixes and then increase from there.
