First, take out the joker cards in the deck and then shuffle the card. Next deal out every card making sure that each card is facing down. Do not allow any player to look at his or her cards. The third step is for the first player to put the top card of his/her deck in the middle of the table. If the card is not a jack, the next player will put there top card on the pile.

  Egyptian ratscrew is also played with the standard deck of 52 cards, much like the card games listed above. This card game can be more complicated at times and is more suitable for children and adults above the age of 10. If you do not know how to play, here is how…

Players can not look at any of their cards throughout the duration of the game, while the dealer evenly distributes every card to all of the players. Once each card is dealt, the player to the left of the dealer will begin. That player will flip over the top card on their deck of cards making sure he or she does not look at it. If the card that he/she puts down is a face card (Ace, Jack, Queen, or King) the next player will have so many chances to put down another face card. Each face card is given a set value to how many cards the next person will be allowed to put down to find another face card. An ace allows the next person four chances to put down another face card, a king allows the next person three chances, a queen allows the next person two chances, and finally a jack will only allow the next person one chance to place down another face card. The person with all of the cards at the end of the game will win.
