Comparing Card Games

This page is part of a series of pages that classifies games by their objective and does not give any specific rules to any games. Please check out the rest of our site for more in-depth pages on gaming rules.

Comparing card games are simple in mechanics. These games are played by players revealing cards and comparing them. The winner is determined by either having the best card or correctly placing a bet beforehand on the card revealed.

These games typically fall into two game groups, cuckoo games or banking games.

In cuckoo games, each player has a singular card and following rules set by the game, your card will be passed and traded. Once revealed the player with the lowest card will lose.

In banking games that use this objective, there is usually a bet placed on which card you think will be revealed.
