Speed Card Game

Speed card Game

If you are looking for a fun card game for two people then speed card game is a great option.

As the name says, speed is a fast paced card game.  To get started you want to thoroughly shuffle the deck.

When speed is being played there will be 4 piles of cards in the center of the table.  These piles will be in a straight line equally between both players.

Start off by making two piles of 6 cards faced down.  Next divide the remaining deck into two piles (one for each player.

Each player will keep these piles in front of them face down, and take the top five cards to hold in their hand.

When the game starts each player will flip over the top card of the center pile (the ones with 6 cards) and put that card on the table between those two piles.

These cards that are facing up will be the ones that both players can play off of.  The game starts as soon as these cards that are facing up are placed on the table.

When looking at the cards in your hand you are able to play on either of the two piles that are facing up.  You can only play a card that is one value higher or lower than the top card of the two center piles.

For instance, if there is a 7 showing, you are able to play a 6 or an 8.  If it’s a 10 showing you can play a 9 or a Jack.


Once you have played some of your cards you are allowed to grab from your large pile of cards.  You can only have up to 5 cards in your hand at any time.

If both players can’t play off of either of the center piles this is when you both flip over the top card of the piles next to them.

Once these cards are flipped the game is active.  If all over these cards have been used, then leave the top card that is face up and flip over everything under them.

These will be the new piles that are used when neither player has a move.

The game is over when one player has used all of their cards that are in front of them.  At this point collect all the cards, shuffle and re-deal.

Also find out if there are other friends that might want to challenge the winner.
