I'm assuming that Runs need not have a common suit like Cribbage rules. Is that true?
Regarding the Extended Deck, you only talk about Pawns and The Excuse. Any rules for the Courts?
The Excuse has a rank 0 and no suit. So if I read correctly you could have a 5 and 6 for 11, and the the same 5 and 6 plus the Excuse for a second 11?
The Pawns have no Rank but 3 suits. They are valid for pairs with themselves, and "of-a-kinds" which I assume you mean a 6 suit meld for 6 points. Correct?
Must a 6-suit meld have exactly the 6 suits, no extras?
