Let’s look at how you play war four player.
Well, the first thing you’re going to do is
you’re going to deal out the cards evenly
to you and your three kids. Or heck, to you
and your three frat brothers. However you
want to do this. Sometimes in life, even as
adults, the game of war is the only game we
can manage. So you want to make sure you deal
out evenly. If you’ve watched my other segments
you know I have spoon thumbs so this is about
the most elegant deal I can do. Thank you
for bearing with me. Now everybody puts their
cards in a neat stack.
Then we each roll our own as we say in poker.
So two cards coming out, you have four. Now
this is interesting because two kings came
out so you have a question. Who fights the
war? Well, there are two ways to play. One
is all four players would fight the war if
you will. The other is the players who threw
out the kings. You’ll need to decide what
are your house rules for war. I would suggest,
if you’re playing – if it’s you and three
small kids – everybody gets to be part of
the war. Otherwise, well you know there might
be issues. Issues of feeling like someone
is unincluded. So let’s just all play our
war and see who wins. It looks like I win
with a ten of spades. Lucky me. Look at all
those cards I just picked up. Well, that’s
how war works and I have the good fortune
of being well on the way to winning the game.
