How to play the card game War

War is a popular and simple card game that can be played by two or more players. It’s often played by children, but adults can also enjoy the game.

How to Prepare

  • Gather together a single deck of cards. All face cards (Kings, Queens, and Jacks) should be taken out of the deck.
  • Shuffle the remaining cards.
  • Deal out all of the cards to each player so that the number of cards are even. If there are an odd number of cards in the deck one card is placed away from the game.

The Battle

  • Pick up your cards and hold them in your hand so no one can see them.
  • Players on each side turn their top card over at the same time.
  • Whichever card has the higher rank takes both of the cards and puts face down at the bottom of their stack.
  • Aces are higher than Kings.
  • In the event of a tie, each player turns three cards face down and then turns over the fourth (the ‘war card’). Whoever has the higher card takes all ten cards.
  • If both players turn up a card of equal rank, the ‘war’ process is repeated.

Winning the Game

The player who acquires all of the cards is the winner. The game is surprisingly quick and many players find themselves wanting another round of the game when it’s over.
