How to play:
- Make a custom deck of cards whose positions are familar to all the players.
- Deal 2 cards to every player. Each participant needs to have two position cards so if a player is dealt a wildcard, they must show it to their opponent and then replace it with a new position card from the deck. When all the players have two position cards, the round can begin but if a player was dealt a wildcard, their opponent must fight in that round under the requirement dictated by the wildcard.
- When the round begins, the goal of each player is to achieve one of the positions shown on their cards and keep control of it until they're able to finalize from the chosen position. A round will last between 2 and 5 minutes.
- If finalization was achieved, the winner of that round gets to keep it the position card they chose as a winning card.
- Once a round finishes, either because a finalization was achieved or because the time limit was reached, any used cards (except the winning one) are discarded and each player draws two new cards from the ones remaining in the deck and a new round begins.
- When all rounds have finished, the player in possession of the most winning cards wins. A game normally lasts between 3 and 7 rounds but ultimately the players decide how many rounds their games will last.
Note: The poker face values (A to 10, as well as J, Q and K) and suits that are also featured on the cards don’t serve any purpose for the game but they’ve been added as a bonus so as to let players enjoy traditional card games, should they feel like it.
Always play the game carefully and under the supervision of someone with advanced technical knowledge such as a teacher or a coach.
