Sorrry, not familiar with the game. Try checking out a book of Hoyl at your local library, it should have the answer to your question in there.

If this link doesn't have your answer then just set the rule before the game begins. ;-)

Need clarification on rules for sets and runs. 1. If a player wants to replace a joker which has been played in a run, does the player have to be on the board themselves in order to do this?
