Find a king

king of hearts
Card Game: Find a king

1) Shuffle a standard deck of 52 cards.
2) The cards have to be face down so you can't see them. You can hold the deck in your hands.
3) Draw one card from the deck and see what it is.
4) The goal is to find any king in the deck in as few turns as possible.
5) Keep drawing cards until you find a king.
6) Once you find a king, see how many turns it took to find it.
7) The best score you can get is a 1; which would be finding a king on the first turn.

Players - (1 - unlimited) More than one player? One player plays at a time until they find a king. Then the next player shuffles the deck of cards and plays.

Ties - If the score is tied at the end of the round, each player plays another round. Whoever finds a king in the fewest turns wins. If still a tie, another round is played until tie is broken.

Similar Game - In the find a seven game, you have to find a 7 instead.
