Two to ace

two of spades ace of diamonds
Card Game: Two to ace

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. The rest of the order is decided by highest cards. If a tie, both players draw another card from deck.
3) This game requires a stopwatch or a clock with seconds on it for more accurate timing.
4) The goal is to find one each of cards 2 to ace and lay them out in a horizontal line face up in front of you. The cards must be in order from 2 to ace. The player that does this the quickest wins the game.
5) The cards can be any color. A total of 13 cards must be found. Time starts as soon as player starts looking through deck and ends when player puts down the ace.
6) The deck of 52 cards must be held in each players hands as they find the cards.
7) If a number is accidentally skipped, player must find the skipped number before continuing.

Players - (2 - unlimited players) The player who finds the cards the quickest wins the game.

Ties - Ties are unlikely in this game, since it is timed in minutes and seconds.

Boxing card game

Card Game: Boxing

1) This game is not played with the J, Q, K. Take those cards out of the deck.
2) Each player takes two each of cards from 2-10 and two aces, for a total of 20 cards each. The boxers are determined by color. So one player will take all red cards and the other black cards. The 20 cards are then shuffled.
3) The 20 cards are held in hand and must be face down.
4) Each player takes a card and puts it face up in front.
5) Whoever has the highest card wins the round and gets points according to how high their card is to the other players card. (e.g., if you draw a 10 and the other player draws a 5, the player who drew the 10 wins the round and gets 5 points.)
6) If both players draw the same card, nobody gets points for that round.
7) If a player draws an ace and the other player draws a 2, 3, or 4, the player who drew the ace wins the match by knockout. If a player draws an ace and the other player draws a 5 or higher, the player is not knocked out. The ace counts as 11 points. So the player who drew the ace gets 6 points for the round.
8) If both players draw an ace in the same round, the match is a double knockout and ends as a draw.
9) After each round, the cards drawn are not reused again for the match.
10) There are a total of 12 rounds in a match. Whoever has the highest point total after 12 rounds wins, unless a knockout ends the match sooner.

Players - (2 players) There are a total of 12 rounds in a match. Whoever has the highest point total after 12 rounds wins, unless a knockout ends the match sooner. Keep track of points for each round on paper.

Ties - If both players have the same point total after 12 rounds, the match ends in a draw. If both players draw an ace in the same round, the match ends in a double knockout.
