Simple Card Game
« on: 2012-Oct-10 02:02 »
Somehow I found the rules for a card game I designed back in 1998. I have no recollection that I even posted it on usenet. I played it only a few times with a fellow Marine. Anyway I will repost the rules here.

this is a very simple card game, so simple someone might have even
thought of it before I did.

2-4 players

basically there are two types of cards: attack and defend
red cards attack, black defend
A-10 count as that value of attack or defend, depending on the color

Face cards (Jack Queen King) count as both attack and defend
Red Jack = 6 attack, 5 defend
red queen = 7 a, 5 d
red king = 8 a , 5 d
black jack = 5 a 6 d
black queen = 5 a 7 d
black king = 5 a 8 d

each player starts with the same amount of life, say 20 in a 4
player game
each turn , each player plays one card
[face down, then reveal at the same time]
if the card played is red, then attack to right
if card is black, defends to left
if face card attacks and defends

red cards cause damage equal to value on card, ace is one
black cards subtract damage if player from left plays red card
if red card greater than black card or no black card is played, then
take damage
equal to difference
eg. say I'm to the left of you. Then I will attack you and you
will defend from me
If i play black cards then you don't take any damage
If i play red cards and you play red then you take damage equal to
red card I played
If i play red cards and you play black then subtract black from red
(red - black) and
you take that much damage. count negative damage as zero
but in 4-player game you only attack to your right and defend your
when a player reaches zero life, he is out of the game
last survivor wins, in case of ties nobody wins
might even use score system: in four player game, there could be
1,2, or 3 points
first one out gets no points, next player gets 1, runner-up gets 2,
winner gets 3
if two players die on same turn, they get same amount of points

havent tried it out and seems really stupid but in case you're bored
might try it out and comment how it plays
