NOTE: Some players had a difficult time figuring out how to pickup the discard pile. To do this place two matching cards from your hand into the meld area and then make sure you have the appropriate number of points in your meld area to meet minimum meld, then, and only then can you move the top discard card to the meld pile that matches it. The two matching cards must come from your hand, not from cards already in your meld from previous turns.
