John McLeod is by far the modern genius of playing-card rules on the planet. He pointed out that Can't Be Caught with any WILDCARD(s) in Count Card Rummy was ambiguous. I revised the paragraph. He suggested other things too. Thank you John McLeod, editor & webmaster of the Card Game Rules website:

David Parlett is a writer of his own original games and traditional games. He has many professions including translating languages.

His best known game is Hare & Tortoise of 100% skill for 2 to 6 people, unless playing with a variation of drawing risky Hare Square Cards if your losing. Though 100% skill, it only takes one other player at any time to decrease your chances of winning. You move a runner token (game piece) from start to home on a game board. You don't roll dice. The further you move forward the more carrots it costs. You can receive carrots by moving backwards. You receive & lose carrots in various ways toward home.

Definitely check out his very educational word games too:
