OBJECT: To get lowest possible score.
GAME ENDS: When all cards have been drawn from draw pile and there are no more playable cards in your hand.
STRATEGY: Choosing which cards to play and in what order is what the game is all about. If you were able to play ALL cards in your hand each round then you could get a ZERO score. But sometimes it is better to leave a few cards in your hand so as to have more choices the next round. But this can increase your score. Jokers can save your game - but when should you play them? You may not want to play them too soon. But meanwhile the scores are adding up fast.
Remember - Getting the next set of 5 cards does NOT increase your score by 5 points - but it increases your score by the total number of cards in your hand. If you never played a single card you would end with a score of 275. If you were able to clear all 5 cards in your hand each round you would end with a perfect score of 0.
