Sequence of Play
Movement of the cards continue to play areas until a team plays their last card in the NERTZ PILE and yells, “NERTZ!” This immediately stops any further plays. There may come a time in the play when ALL players are “STUCK.” This means there are no plays available by any players.
At this point the dealer holds the DEALER STACK face down, taking the top card and placing it on the bottom, again count off top three cards and turn face up, repeating process. This is done by all teams at the same time. This may be done up to THREE times per hand. If no plays can be made by any teams then the hand ends and all scores are tallied.
