Could someone tell me exactly how one plays jacks? What terminology is used - particularly in Wisconsin or the Boston area (two of the people involved grew up around Boston and they all currently live somewhere in Wisconsin)- and what does the game sequence look like? Does one player keep going until they miss, or do you take turns?

I got a little bit of information from here:, but could really use some more details. I'm trying to write in a game between three undermature adults.
