Party Games

Authors is a simple game played with the full pack.
            The cards are dealt one at a time to each player until the pack is exhausted.
            The object of the game is to complete a trick of four cards of the same rank.  The winter of the game is he who wins most tricks.
            The game begins by the player on the left of the dealer asking another player for a specified card.  He may ask for any card he chooses so long as he himself holds a card of the same rank.  If the player asked holds the card, he surrenders it to the asker who continues by asking any player for another card.  If a player has not got the card asked for, the privilege of asking passes to him.  When a player has collected four cards of the same rank, he shows them and places them face downwards on the table in front of him as a trick.


            A good memory is essential to success, and some guile is advantageous.  There is, for example, nothing unethical in asking a player for a card already in one’s hand, in an attempt to deter another player from spoiling one’s hand by asking for the card.

Go Fish Go Fish is a similar, but simpler, game to the above.  If two or three players are in the game each is dealt seven cards; if four or five each is dealt five cards.  The remainder of the pack (the stock) is placed face downwards in the centre of the table.
            The game begins by the player on the left of the dealer asking one of the  others for all the cards of a specified rank that he may hold.  The asker may specify any rank he chooses so long as he himself holds at least one card of the same rank.
            The player who has been asked must hand over all the cards of the specified rank that he holds; but if he holds none he says: ‘Go fish’.  The asker must then draw the top card of the stock.

            A player’s turn to ask continues for as long as he is successful in obtaining the cards he asked for.  If he has to fish, and he draws a card of the specified rank from the stock, he must show it before continuing to ask.  If a player fails to obtain a card of the rank asked for, either from the player asked or from the stock after being told to fish, the privilege of asking passes to the player on his left.
            When a player obtains all four cards of one rank, he shows them and places them face downwards as a trick on the table in front of him.
            The game ends when all thirteen tricks have been won, the winner of the game being he who has won most tricks.

Cheating- Cheating is an amusing game suitable for any number of players.  It is played with two, three or even four packs of cards, shuffled together, according to the number of players, and sufficient cards are removed in order that every player may begin with the same number.
            the cards are dealt one at a time, face downwards, to the players, and the dealer begins the game by playing a card, face downwards, to the centre of the table, and saying  ‘Six’ or whatever he chooses.  The next player plays a card face downwards on top of it and says ‘Seven’, the next ‘Eight’, and son up to ‘King’, when the next player says ‘Ace’, the next ‘Two’, and so on.

            The feature of the game is that a player need not necessarily play the card he announces-indeed he may not always be able to and after a player has announced a card anyone may challenge him by calling ‘Cheating ‘.  The card is then exposed.  If it is found that the player has not played the card he announced he must take into his hand all the cards on the table; on the other hand, if has played the card that he announced the challenger must take all the cards of the table into his hand.
            After a challenge the player on the left of the one challenged restarts the game by playing a card to the centre of the table and announcing it.
            The game is won by the player who is first to get rid of all his cards.
            The game is an hilarious one hand a general shout of ‘Cheating’ is likely to lead to an argument  as to who was first.  It is best, therefore, for each player to stand out of the game in turn  and act as an umpire.

Fan Tan- Fan Tan is also known as Card Dominoes, Parliament and Sevens, and must not be confused with the gambling game that is played in China under the same name.  In fact, the well-known Chinese game is not a card game.
            The game is played with the standard 52-card pack the cards ranking in the order from King (high) to Ace (low).
            Before each deal an agreed amount is placed by each player into a pool.  The cards are dealt one by one, face downwards, until the pack is exhausted, and play begins by the player on the left of the dealer placing a 7 face upwards in the centre of the table.  If he has no 7 he contributes 1 unit to the pool, and the player on his left now has to play a 7 to the centre of the table or contribute 1 unit to the pool, and so on.
            As soon as a 7 has been played to the centre of the table, the next player must play either the 6 of the same suit on its left, or the 8 of the same suit on its right, or the 7 of another suit below it.  The game continues clockwise round the table, the players building up to the kings on the right of the 7s and down to the Aces on the left of them.


            Any player who is unable to play in his turn contributes 1 unit to the pool, and if he revokes, by failing to play when he could do so, he forfeits 3 units to the pool, and 5 units each to the holders of the 6 and 8 if he fails to play a 7 when he could and should have played it.
            The game is won by the player who is first to get rid of all his cards.  He receives all that is in the pool and from each of the other players 1 unit for every card that the player holds.
            Skill comes into the game by holding up the opponents.  As a general rule a 7, unless it is accompanied by several cards of the same suit, should be kept in hand for as long as possible; and, if a player has a choice of plays, he should prefer the card that will allow him later to play a lower or higher one of the same suit, rather than one that can only help the opponents.
            With the situation of the game as in the illustration opposite, the player plays the 10♣ because when the J ♣ is played he can follow with the Q ♣.  It would be an error of judgment to play the 6♥, because it doesn’t help him, but might help the opponents.
            On another level, the game can be played by children, without the need for a pool.  Plate 17 shows children enjoying fan tan.

 Newmarket- Newmarket is a modern variation of the old game of pope joan and is known by a number of other names-Boodle and Stops in England; Chicago, Michigan and Saratoga in America.
            It is an excellent game for from three to eight players that is easy to learn and contains an element of skill that guarantees the better player winning in the long run.
            The game is played with a full pack of fifty-two cards, and an Ace, King, Queen and Jack (each of a different suit) from another pack.  These four extra cards are known as the boodle cards, and are placed, face upwards, in a row in centre of the table.

            Before the deal each player has to stake an agreed number of chips (usually, but not necessarily, 10) on the boodle cards.  He may stake his chips as he pleases, but he must not stake more nor less than the agreed number.
            The dealer then deals the cards one at a time to each player in rotation, and to an extra hand or dummy.  As the players must each receive the same number of cards, any over-cards are dealt to the receive the same number of cards, any over-cards are dealt to the dummy hand which remains face downwards on the table throughout the deal.

            The cards rank in the order from Ace (high) to 2 (low ) and the player on the left of the dealer makes the first lead.  He may lead a card from any suit, but it must be the lowest card that he hold in the suit.  The players do not play in rotation round the table.  The next play is made by the player who holds next higher cards in the suit, then the next higher card is played by the player who holds it, and so on, until the run is stopped either because a player plays the Ace of the suit, or the next higher card is in the dummy hand.  Either way, the player who played the last card leads the lowest card of another suit, and if he has no other suit the lead passes to the player on his left.
            When a player plays a card that is identical with one of the boodle cards he collects all the chips that have been staked on it. 
            The object of the game, however, is not only to win the chips that have been staked on the boodle cards, but to get rid of all one’s cards, because the player who is first to do so receives one chip from each of the other players.  If no player gets rid of all his cards, the one holds the fewest number of cards wins the hand, and if two players are left with an equal number of fewest cards they divide the winnings.
            If when a deal comes to an end the chips on one or more of the boodle cards have not been claimed, because the corresponding cards to the boodle cards are in the dummy hand, they are carried forward to the next deal.
