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.
Click "Reset Game" to clear all cards from the game and start over.
Now you have a deck of cards, the "Deal" button (and deal quantity) controls appear. - 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.
Dealt cards will appear in your "Hand" (only visible to you).
Use your mouse or touchscreen to move cards, with "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!
