A 52 card deck of cards is divided evenly among two players. Players reveal the top card of their deck, the player whose card has the higher value takes both cards. If they are equal in value, a "war" occurs. Players place the next card face down (sometimes three) and then the next face up. The player with the higher card then wins all of the cards. If they are equal, another war occurs, continuing until one player plays a higher card. The player who collects the entire deck wins.
