Players: 2

Cards: 2 decks, 104 cards, normal playing cards, no jokers.

Object: To be the first player without any cards left.

Dealing: Shuffle deck and give out 52 cards to each player. Players do not look at their cards but keep them in a face down stack.

Game play: Cards are played to a face up pile between the players. Players take turns to play. At your turn you flip the top card of your stack face up. If it is playable, you place it on the center pile; if not you add it face down to the bottom of your stack. The first card played must be an Ace (A) - any other card flipped is placed at the bottom of the player's stack. After an Ace has played the next card must be a 2, when a 2 is played then a 3, then a 4, and so on. Once the cards reach a king (K) then the players set the played cards aside and start again from the Ace.

Ranks: Game is played with Ace being lowest and King being highest. (A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K)
