Game Objective: To have all 52 cards in your pile.
How To Play:
Begin game by clicking "Start Game / Deal Cards" button. Once cards have been dealt, the total cards in each pile will be 26 (half the deck). The button will now read "Play Cards". When you click the button now, player will be dealt the first card; then the computer's card will be dealt.
The cards dealt will now be analyzed to see which card has the higher value. The card values are evaluated as follows from highest to lowest card:
Whoever has the higher card value wins the hand. The winner's pile total will increase by one while the loser's pile total will decrease by one. The next time you click the button, the winner's card will be dealt first. The game continues as described above until someone has all 52 cards in their pile, in which case the game is over, or WAR occurs.
WAR occurs when the player and computer are dealt the same card. If this happens, the "Declare War Area" will fill up with cards one at a time beginning with the player's area. Three cards will be dealt face down and the fourth card will be dealt face up.
First card represents "I"
The cards that are face up will be evaluated to see which card has the higher value. Whoever has the higher card value wins WAR. The winner's pile will be increased by 5 (the loser's card that caused war plus the loser's 4 war cards) and the loser's pile will be decreased by 5.
If the cards that are face up are the same, the "Declare War Area" will be cleared out and WAR will be declared again as described above. The points will distributed as follows, the winner's pile will increase by 9 (the loser's card that caused war plus the loser's 8 war cards [4 cards from first round of war and 4 cards from second round of war]) and the loser's pile will be decreased by 9. WAR will be declared as many times as necessary until the face up cards are different.
When the game is over, you will be asked whether you want to play again.
That's the game in a nutshell.
GOOD LUCK and ENJOY!!
Peace And Good Fortune To All.
