Cool! You're in the right place to see how your Card Table works...
When you first enter an unused Table, look at the lower left corner of your display - This is the Deal Control Centre - It's where every game starts.
Click "New Deck" to create a deck of cards.
nb. Before creating any deck, you can switch off Jokers and Auto Shuffle to suit your game needs
Click "Reset Game" to clear all cards from the game and start over.
Now you have a deck of cards, the Deal Control Centre changes to give the Dealer access to the "Deal" button (and to adjust the deal quantity). - All players get access to the deck by clicking on "Draw Card".
You can pass the Deal Control Centre to the next player at any time, by clicking on "Next Dealer" button.
Once players have been dealt, their cards will appear in their "Hand"
To move your cards around inside your Hand, you can use "Drag'n Drop or Tap'n Point - whichever mode suits you (or your device) best. We try to detect what device you are using and pre-set the mode for you - but feel free to experiment!
(nb. some devices do not support Drag'n Drop mode)
