Comments on "The Official Rules of Hookie-Mookie"

This is terrific! Here's the question: can it be played co-competitively as well? That is, a player can win, but it's possible for everyone to lose? I've been thinking for a long time about trying to design a co-competitive game, and I've never really run across one that I thought quite fit the bill.

I think it might indeed lend itself to that, because in principle one player always has to be out of cards first, so you could consider them the winner. I don't know what that would be like phenomenologically... try it and let me know!
