Okay let’s make sure we know how war is played
heads up – two player. I’m going to cut the deck in half so you don’t have to watch me
shuffle, and you’ll play this side and I’ll play this side. How about that? So the first
thing we each do is throw out a card. You threw this nine. I threw a six. Nine takes
it. You play a card. I play a card. We both have queens. So we declare war on each other.
You put out three cards down, one card up. I have to beat a jack. I did not. I’m always
interested in looking at what I picked up. Look at that. You got a jack, a ten and a
five. So statistically speaking you’ve got two cards that can beat me later on. We just
keep going and you do this until somebody takes the whole deck.
