War Games

The thing that sets war games apart from others is the player’s hands. Each player will hold their hand of cards face down so that even they don’t know what they will play. Gameplay is flipping the top card of your hidden hand into the discard pile, and if you win the turn you win the discard pile.

The objective of these types of games is to win all the cards from the pack. These games hold no real strategy and are purely based on luck, usually.

Examples include:

  • War
  • Snap
  • Slapjack
  • Egyptian Ratscrew
  • Beggar my neighbor
