Scout is a quick playing card game that uses ladder-climbing as it’s main feature. Players must play larger or higher sets to score points, otherwise taking a card from the middle, which is bad as any cards left in your hand at the end of the round are negative points. One thing that makes this all the more tricky is that you are not allowed to rearrange the cards in your hand, so any straights, pairs, or three of kind must be next to each other in your hand in order to play them.
