Card Games : How to Play War

Hi my name is Windy St. George and this is
how to play war. War is played with two players.
One deck is divided between the two of them
Face down. Then each player pulls up the first
card on the draw pile and places it down,
a seven and an eight. So whoever has the higher
number wins the cards. And it goes into their
point pile. Eight, seven. Eventually the same
number will come up. When the same number
comes up, then it’s war. When it’s war, both
player says war, and then they put three cards
down and then one card up. Three cards down
and one card up. This here is the case of
double war, which is again the same number
has come up. So again you go and whoever has
the higher number gets all the cards. Play
continues until one player has no cards left.
Although some people play where they agree
that the first person to win five wars is
the winner. Since playing until all the cards
are gone can take a while. And that’s how
you play war.

  1. what about jacks,kings,queens, and aces jacks lose kings,queens, and aces kings win queens and jacks queens win jack and aces win all.jacks,queens,kings, and aces win any number including 10

  2. this is the most boring game to exist on earth…
    The only game who can pwn this game in terms of bore is 'The Ace of Spades' which consists of shuffling a deck of cards. The objective of this game is to take the first card on top of the deck. if it is an Ace of spades, you win, if it is not, you fail. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oh…I thought war was a strategy game. Seems like it is a "luck" type of game. Is there any card games that involves strategy?

  4. @MAT0R0 I play war usualy so you look at 7 random cards like a hand in poker then choose a card to place down and then flip them

  5. @rockeer after watching this vid i verbally said aloud "that is the dumbest game everr", then I check the comments.

    My thoughts exactly rockeer, my thoughts exactly…

  6. My sister an I play this game a lot, and it usually lasts us about an hour. I was taught to remember how many to put down (when the sane cards come up) to think in my head "I-de-clare-WAR" and to put 3 down and the WAR one up

  7. I haven't played yet but how can one player end up with fewer cards (the winner)?
    Both sides are contributing the same number of cards.  I can see the one collecting the most cards the winner.   Nice presentation, Wendy.

  8. i always played it by when a war happened, the first war you would put 1 card face down, then if there is a double war you put 2 cards down and so on.

    point pile? i thought you just put the cards you win at the bottom of your hand, then the game is continuous.

    there is also persian war where you keep putting down cards until there is a war

    you also forgot to mention about more players, all you need is 3 people then you can start playing.

  9. what if you both call war but one player only has 3 cards left? does he put 2 facedown and the third one face up? or does he just lose because he runs out of cards?

  10. Uummm i ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ how she says shuffle the cards equally and she just splits them in half although I still understood very well

  11. Great video! I got some mini cards from my toutoring class and you get points. (Yes I'm dumb) and I chose them, so now I can play!

  12. Why not also try our new card game Kastles – Medieval Mayhem. Happy to send you a free pack if you'll review it?

  13. My grandmother taught me how to play this game when I was 7. I then taught my cousin and he fell in love with it. He calls it a classic. Thanks for posting.

  14. Excellent Video! Apologies for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about – Zeyames Wonliver Breakthrough (do a google search)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for playing classic games without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my old buddy Taylor got astronomical success with it.

  15. A version of War I like is to split the deck into equal strength red and black suit piles. Each player can choose from any of the 26 cards in their pile and determine whether its best to present a low, medium or high value card when drawing face down. Aside from the obvious desire of wanting to present the higher card on a typical draw, a weak card like a 2 or 3 or 4 can be strategically important when you think your opponent will draw a strong face card or ace, thus making him waste his high card on your low one instead of on one of your own high cards. This reduces his chances of winning more rounds. Any matching cards on a draw would be withdrawn by both players for another round and new cards are drawn. Whoever wins the most rounds wins the match Note: In the event of a tie, each player can retrieve the 13 winning cards ( keeping the red and black cards separate would be more convenient) and continue playing with them to finish the match. Another option is to remove the number 2 card from the red and black piles before the match so that you play an odd-numbered 25 round match. This can also be played as a solitaire game by playing against the red or black pile and drawing off the top card.

  16. I think this video would have gone over better if the dealer actually shuffled the deck. Remember people, when playing card games, give the deck a good shuffle or two, and possibly a cut.
