6) There are five men on each team.
7) As cards are drawn, they are put in a separate pile. No cards are reused for a teams (players) turn at shooting.
8) Cards keep being drawn until the five member team (player) each shoots. Then the other team (player) shoots.
9) The most points a team can make is 14 points. You would have to draw four 3's and one 2. The lowest points you can make is 2.

Players - (2 players) The first team shoots until all 5 players on the team have had a chance. Once a side has each made a shot, all 12 cards are shuffled. Then the second team shoots.

Ties - The side shooting second has to score more points to win the game. If they match the score, overtime is played to decide the winner. The team that shooted first draws a card from the deck of 12 cards. The the deck is shuffled and the second team draws a card from the deck of 12. Whoever has the most points wins. If still a tie, another overtime is played until tie is broken.

Match two cards

six of hearts ten of clubs
Card Game: Match two cards

1) Shuffle a standard deck of 52 cards.
2) Each player takes a card from the deck to see who goes first. The highest card goes first. Ace is the highest card. If a tie, both players draw another card from deck.
3) Reshuffle the deck.
4) Both players draw five cards from the deck. The cards are then put face up in front of each player so everyone can see them.
5) The goal is to match two of your five face up cards. (e.g., if one of your face up cards is a 7, you have to draw a 7. If you have a king, you have to draw a king.) If you have two face up cards that are a 6 and draw a 6, the drawn 6 can only be used to remove one of the face up 6's cards, not both of them.
6) Both players draw one card at a time from the deck. The card on top must always be selected next. The player who won the high card draw goes first. If a card is matched than both cards are taken off; the drawn card and the face up card. If no card is matched, just the drawn card is taken off and the other player goes next.

Players - (2 players) Both players take turns drawing a card from the deck one at a time. The first player to match two of their cards wins the game.

Similar Game - In the match three card game, you have to match 3 cards instead of 2.

Total 25

ten of hearts ten of spades five of clubs
Card Game: Total 25

1) Shuffle a standard deck of 52 cards.

5) Keep drawing cards until your total is 25 or more.
6) Keep all the cards you draw in a separate pile. Add them up at the end and see how many cards you drew.
7) The fastest you can get to a total of 25 is in three cards.
