The object of this 2 player game is to collect all the cards. Setup. Suffle a standard deck of playing cards, with jokers, and deal out all the cards. Each player picks up their deck and simultaneously flips the top card face up in front of themselves. Compare the two cards and the player with the highest ranking card collects both cards in a personal face up discard pile. Joker is the highest rank, followed by ace then king all the way down to 2. If you run out of cards in your deck, turn your collected cards face down, shuffle and continue playing.If you both flip over identical cards of the same rank, this is called a “war”. Each player lays 3 cards facedown, staggered on top of their faceup card, then each player flips 1 card face up. Compare the new face up cards played and the player with the higher rank wins all the cards in the war, including the face down ones. If, however, the cards tie again, then you have another “war”. Place down another 3 cards, and continue the process until there is a winner. If a player doesn’t have 3 cards to place down because they ran out of cards in their deck and discard, then they lose the war. The first player to collect all the cards in the deck, wins!


  1. Who else doesn’t know to play cards and is bored of watching your friends when u don’t understand how to play

  2. This is a better explanation than the other ones out there. Thanks.

  3. I thought the ace card was the highest

  4. Been playing same round since 3 years, haven't finished it yet 😥

  5. Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Wait a minute, I thought Ace beat everything.

  7. i am searching on internet how to play king queen jack heart spade card game, i cant find anyone teaching properly,, how, where can i learn???

  8. Thanks for sharing. I'm playing spades tonight and couldn't remember how to play.

  9. As kid growing up when it was declared WAR we would lay a card down for each word we would say I DECLARE WAR and the last card faced up😊

  10. This is straight to the point. Thank you. Happy playing to me and my niece 🎉

  11. Using this to play out my proficiency with playing cards in D&D Thanks man XD

  12. I FINALLY BOUGHT A DECK OF CARSS AGAIN 😭😭😭 With no tv or cable this was the game back when I was a kid. I’ve been missing it but needed a refresher on the rules. Thanks!!!

  13. The good thing of this game is because with Joker's and yesterday I made 54 cards including Joker's
    King is still not highest because Ace is higher and Joker is the highest
    Joker-Ace King-Queen-Jack 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2

  14. My favorite house rule is that 2 beats an Ace (we don't use jokers). This allows players without any aces to still have a shot at winning.

  15. it would make more sense for the players to arrange their cards however they want. and then play the game. so element of prediction and strategy involved.

  16. I love how you got straight to the point, thanks!

  17. Before Covid, I was a professional body piercer and me and the desk girl would sit and play war for HOURS. Sometimes the days would get so slow in the winter we would play the whole day.

    I cut up an ad card in my deck into two pieces and I gave her half and I kept the other. We eventually went our separate ways but still keep the puzzle cut cards in our wallets to remember all the good times we had just talkin and playing this.

  18. This is my favorite card game we played with hundreds if cards from mixed decks collected from relatives and friends houses.

  19. Teaching my 73 year old neighbor (I'm 32) how to play war, this was super helpful. Thank you! Evening well spent with friends

  20. How could this game be reimagined to be not bad

  21. • {𝓝o𝓽_𝑷h𝒐e𝒏i𝒙-!} • says:

    So I once played this with my neighborAND SOMEHOW GIT A TRIPLE WAR IN A ROW

  22. So if theres a war but one of the players cant put down 3 card they lose the game?

  23. This game is completely based on luck. There is no decision making.

  24. "War, how to play. The object of the game is to kill soldiers until the enemy(ies) surrender"

  25. Wow, a card game where you play The Joker card 🃏 & its higher than the Ace.♣️

  26. Kinda remembering that you did this video before, is this a reupload sorry if not

  27. I haven't played it before and I wish I'll teach one of the members of my family how to play it. It's may be simple in my opinion.

  28. TIP: When you see these types of comments,
    “loved it”
    “wanna be friends?”
    Do NOT reply to them. They are bots trying to hack into your accounts. Don’t even subscribe to their channel, and don’t even pin them.

  29. I saw a different tutorial and they said that you must put down only one card face down during a War.
    Can you explain this?

  30. 1:15 What happens if both players don't have enough cards for a War?

  31. I wish I had the card game war just like Triple S Games

  32. I love this guy! I have a teen program in which I show the teens how to play various games and his videos are always the best!!!

  33. Hardly a game if you have no effect on the outcome…"how to watch a movie war"
