Can you win all the cards by being the fastest one to slap the jack? This game takes quick reflexes. While it might be frustrating for a kid who hates to lose, I think that’s a great learning opportunity.
How to deal:
Deal the entire deck, one at a time to each player. The piles do not have to be even. Don’t look at your cards and straighten them into a neat pile.
How to Play
Each player takes turns placing one card from their pile face up in the center of a table, forming a pile.
When you see a Jack, be the first to slap it and you get the entire pile. Shuffle it into the pile in your hand and continue playing.
If you slap a card that’s not a Jack, you have to give the player who laid that card, one of your cards. If two people slap, the first person with their hand on the Jack gets the pile.
How to Win
The object of the game is to get all the cards.
If a player runs out of cards, they stay in the game until the next Jack is played. If they don’t successfully slap it, they are out.
