The goal of the game is to end up with all the cards. The player that collects all of the cards wins.
How to Play
- Both players turn up a card at the same time and the player with the higher card takes both cards and puts them, face down, on the bottom of his stack.
- If the two cards are of equal value, then there is a “war”. Both players put the next card of their pile face down and then one more card face-up. The player with the higher card wins the war and adds all the cards on the table to the bottom of their deck.
- The game ends when one player has collected all the cards.
