This fun game takes little skill and is terrific for young children. Play the suits in sequence. First player to get rid of all his cards wins.

By Stewart Coerver

requires
A standard deck of cards (no Jokers)
2 to 10 players

game play
Deal all the cards. Everyone need not have the same number of cards if the deck doesn't divide evenly.

The person to the dealer's left makes the first play. This person takes the lowest card he has in a particular suit and plays it in the center of the table. Play does not go around the circle after that. The player who has the next-highest card in that suit plays it on top. And then the next highest card is played by whoever has it. Play continues until the Ace (the highest card of the suit) is reached. The player who plays the Ace then plays the lowest card he has from a new suit and the process begins again.

objective
The first player to get rid of all his cards wins the hand. The other players have points subtracted for the cards they have left. Keeping score is not essential.

make it even easier
You can remove face cards if they confuse your youngest card players. The Aces and the other numbered cards are easy.
