The standard 52-card pack is used.
The goal is to be the first player to make a group of four of a kind in his hand, or not to be the last player to notice when someone else has done so.
Any player shuffles the deck thoroughly and deals four cards, one at a time, to each player.
The players look at their hands; then each player passes one card to the left and picks up the card passed by the player on their right. This passing continues as rapidly as possible so that players have a difficult time keeping up the pace.
As soon as a player assembles four cards of one denomination, such as four jacks, they stop passing or picking up cards and puts a finger to their nose. The other players must immediately stop passing, and they, too, must put their fingers to their noses.
The last person to do this is the Pig!
