The game is known as “Bettler” or “Negern”. It’s a popular card game in many Western countries. In the meantime, the game exists in some commercial variations.
The aim of the President is to discard all of your cards before any other player in order to become the President! Players take turns in laying a card from their hand. The player who starts the trick may decide whether he/she lays a single card or multiple cards. Once all of the players have played a card or passed, the player who played the highest card wins the trick. The round comes to an end when the second to last player disposes of his/her last card. The player who is titled President in the final round of play wins the game.
