This game for one player requires a lot of time and patience. It is supposed to help you become more patient.

Required for Game Play: 52 Card Standard Deck

Object of The Game: Guess which suit will have the highest card on the last draw (you must guess it right to win).


First you take the two (2) of every suit out of the deck and lay them on a flat surface (like a table) face-up beside each other (spread them out so that they don't get crammed up). Then shuffle the remaining 48-card deck, place it face down, and guess which suit will have the highest card on the last draw.

Next you draw cards from the top of the deck, one at a time, and place each card on the pile started by the two of the matching suit. You keep doing this until you run out of cards in the face down deck.

Now look at the cards on top of the four piles. If you guessed right which would be highest, then you win. If two (or more) piles have equal highest cards on top, remove those top cards. Repeat if necessary until there is a single winning pile with the highest card on top.

It is good to practice this "Art of Patience" at least one, two or three times a day.
