The Rules
All the cards are dealt
between two players.

The starting player chooses a
category from his or her
topmost card and reads out its
value. The other player then
reads out the value of the
same category from their top
card. The card with the best
or highest value wins. The
winner takes both the cards
and places them at the bottom
of his or her pile. That player
then looks at their new
topmost card, and chooses a
category for the next round.

In the event of a draw, the
cards are placed in the centre
and a new category is chosen
from the next card by the
same person as in the
previous round. The winner of
that round obtains all of the
cards in the centre as well as
the top card from each player.

The winner is the player who
obtains the whole pack.
