The Bidding War is a simple card game for two players. It's similar to the children's card game War, but it involves a little more skill. That means that, if you play better than your opponent, you can gain an edge on him and beat him more often than not. Basically the game involves some mathematics and psychology , at least if you want to play it well.
So let's see how it's played...
The game is played with a standard 52 card deck (no jokers). All of the cards are dealt out face down between the two players, so each player gets 26 cards. Players must not look at their cards! They just get a pile of 26 cards each, that's it.
The game starts with one of the players guessing the sum of the top cards of both player piles. The other player then guesses as well, but he can not chose the same sum or a sum that equals the first player's sum +/-1.
After both players make their guesses, there are 3 possible outcomes:
When you get a bidding war, both players take a look at the next card in their pile. Then the first player starts the bidding by saying what he thinks is the sum of both cards. The other player can then raise the bid to a higher number or call, if he raises, then the first player can raise again or call. It goes on like this until one of the players calls.
If the sum of both cards is lower than the bid, the calling player wins all four cards, plus the next two top cards(one from each players pile). If the sum is higher that the bid, then the bidding player wins all six cards.
Well, you can play this game in two ways:
