ORDER OF CARDS

IF CARD IS THE SAME NUMBER..
SPADES HEARTS DIAMONDS CLUBS

[The rank of cards from high to low is 7-6-8-5-9-4-10-3-J-2-Q-A-K. Between cards of the same number, suits rank spades (high), hearts, diamonds, clubs (low)]. Therefore: ...

7 SPADES IS AN AUTO WIN
KING OF CLUBS IS AN AUTO LOSE

  1. DEAL CARDS FACE DOWN IN A PYRAMID OF 5 ROWS, KEEPING 11 SPARE (WAMPTU CARDS) WHICH CAN BE PUT DOWN AT ANY TIME.

    [There are two players, so this uses all 52 cards of a standard deck. Each player's pyramid is overlapped like this:

    pyramid
    ]

  2. FLIP TOP(APEX) CARD [even though it is "covered" by two cards], WHOEVER WINS STARTS AND KEEPS BOTH CARDS. THE PERSON WHO HAS MOST CARDS AT THE END WINS THE GAME.
  3. TAKE IT IN TURNS TO FLIP CARDS OUT OF YOUR PYRAMID WHO EVER WINS KEEPS THE TWO CARDS (THEY ARENT USED AGAIN) CAN NOT FLIP A BLOCKED CARD. EG.
    blocking

    [At any time you can choose to flip a wamptu card instead of using a card from your pyramid.]

WHEN ALL THE CARDS RUN OUT COUNT THE NUMBER OF CARDS IN YOUR PILE. THE PERSON WITH THE MOST CARDS WINS.

IN THE EVENT OF A DRAW THE PERSON WITH THE 7 OF SPADES IN THEIR HAND WINS.
