The game is played like War, splitting the deck between the two players. Each turn you look at the top card of your deck and announce whether you think you will win the trick or not (you don't get to see the other person's card, of course). Browbeating, bluffing, and psychology are encouraged at this point. There will be one of three results:
The game ends when one player has won three challenges; that player wins....OR When all cards are played. At that point, count all cards in your score pile. High total wins.
If a challenge ends in a tie, go to the next trick; winner of the trick wins the tied cards as well, as in regular war.
