Game rules: There are between two and four players and 32 cards. Every player always has a hand of three cards and one to three lives indicated by matchsticks. Three more cards are placed face-up in the center. Whoever first reaches 31 points wins the round. If no-one reaches 31 points, the player with the lowest point score loses a life.
You get points for cards of the same suit: Rank cards are worth the same as their number (7, 8, 9, 10). Face cards are worth 10 and aces are worth 11 points. Another special card combination comprises three cards of equal points value - those make up 31½
You can do one of four possible actions each round:
- Exchange one of your cards with one from the center
- Swap your entire hand with the three cards in the center
- Pass, if you don't want to make any card changes
- Knock, if to indicate the last round once you think that you will not be the player with the lowest hand-score.
If you are the first to draw at the start of the round, you can chose to put your hand in the middle and get another hand from the deck, or put three new cards from the deck in the middle of the table.
The player with the lowest amount of points loses a round. Once all matchsticks are gone (burnt), the player is considered to “swim” - this means they can continue to play but losing one more round finally means “drowning” and losing the game. However, you still have a chance of winning even while swimming! Whichever player is left at the end, wins.

Blitz 31-honoring grandma Jennie
I really loved this game it made me miss my grandma so much I just loved playing blitz and this is why I downloaded this app it’s an memory and a fun game but what I don’t like about this game is when the other players try to throw me out of the game I get very annoyed they don’t think that I have a good hand but still they make me lose my life means a match so whatever they do to me please tell them to stop
Wouldn’t let you win if you dont spend money
I would rate this game 5 stars except for the annoyingly loud adds that have recently been added. It had ads before, but now with recent updates the new ads are really annoying. I would pay $10 US to get rid of the ads. (The game is that fun and addicting).
