Each of the four decks has a different design: pump, carriage, pail and plow. Each player chooses one of these deck designs and keeps it for the duration of the game, regardless of the number of hands played. The front of these decorative cards, or faces, are printed in red, blue, yellow and green. The red and blue cards carry Pennsylvania Dutch Boy illustrations. The yellow and green cards carry a Pennsylvania Dutch Girl illustration. Each player builds three basic groups of cards in front of him from which he will play the game. The groups of cards placed in position are referred to as the Post,Blitz and WoodPiles. Prime object of the game is to build as many cards in sequence - 1 through 10 - in the same respective colors in the center DutchPiles, for points toward game, using as many cards from the BlitzPile as possible (See Figure D). When the BlitzPile has been exhausted, the player has ''Blitzed" his opponents and won the hand. Cards for placement in the Dutch Piles can also be drawn from the player's Post and WoodPiles.
