PANGUINGUE (pan-ginn-gay), popularly known as “PAN,” has been played in California since the early 1900s. The object of the game is to have combinations of three or more cards in sets or runs (known as ‘melds’) laid on the table in front of you using eleven cards.
Eight decks of regular playing cards are used to play the game; 8s, 9s, 10s and the Jokers are omitted, leaving a total of 320 cards. (Commerce Casino always deletes a set of spades from each setup of cards). Cards in each suit rank as follows: King is the highest, Queen, Jack, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace. The Jack and the seven can be used in sequence. There is no rank of suits except that spades pay double. The minimum buy-in is twenty chips of equal value for the condition of the game. Commerce Casino will start a game with five or more—and not exceeding eight players.
