Yes, the card game shithead.
We play this EVERYDAY during lunchbreak and you'd think we would grow sick of it, well think again, this might be the most addicted game of your life...
Now the rules are simple:
Let's say you play it with 5 people. (You can play it with as many as you want, minimum is 2 though)
Now first of all, you have all the cards in the came involved, BUT only ONE joker.
This is how you count from highest to lowest cards:
So this is the game:
The one who has the clover 3 starts the game every time. If that's on the table, the one to the left is the second, and so on. You play your lowest cards, that's higher than the card that's already on the table, for example, if the first one puts up the 3, you have you play your 4 if that's your lowest card, the next person has to put on his 5 or 6 or whatever his lowest card is as long as it's higher than the last card put on the table. if you can't, you pass. (you can pass as many times as you like) So simple isn't it? Well, it's not all yet. Cause you can also play doubles, if you have two of the same cards, keep them together, if no one can top up the card you put on last and you can go again, you can start a new round, throw up your lowest double, when a double is played, only doubles can be played next, if you run out of doubles and you're the last one who threw it up and the round is back at you, you can clear your doubles throwing them all up from lowest till highest, then, you can start a new round again with a single. Get it so far? For example, you throw up double 4, the next person throws a double 6, next one a double queen, if no one has any higher than double queen but that person has a double king, he/she can throw that up and then start the new round with his/her lowerst card again. (This can also count for triples or quadruple) When you pass, you can only enter the game again when a next round had started. But also, this ain't all. If you have three cards in a row who count up, let's sat 4,5,6, than the next person HAS to throw up a 7, or has to pass, this goes on until no one can go higher and the last person to throw up the card wins the round and starts a new one. This is called Consec. (Consecutive)
The one who's out of cards is called the President, second is Vice President, third is neutral, forth is vice shithead and last is shithead. This is important to know cause if you play another round, the shithead shuffles and gives the cards, but that's not all... The shithead gives the president his 2 highest cards, the president gives the shithead his two lowest in return. The vice president and the vice shithead do the same but with 1 card only, the neutrals do nothing, they can keep all their cards, and the game begins again with whoever had the clover 3.
Now with us here in the office, it's important NOT to be shithead, cause when you're shithead in the last round that has been played, you need to do the dishes, meaning you have to clean out the dishwasher if there's clean stuff in it, and put all the dirty stuff in there and turn it on at the end of the day.
If you're still wondering why we can't get sick of playing this game, try and play it yourself, you'll find yourself addicted to it too soon.
