Is Ace high or low in war?
Aces are high, and suits are ignored. If the two cards played are of equal value, then there is a "war". Both players place the next card of their pile face down (some variants have three face down cards) and then another card face-up.
How do you win the card game War?
Each player turns up a card at the same time and the player with the higher card takes both cards and puts them, face down, on the bottom of his stack. If the cards are the same rank, it is War. Each player turns up one card face down and one card face up. The player with the higher cards takes both piles (six cards).
Can the card game war go on forever?
I've always played war where the captured cards go into a pile which are shuffled before played again. In this case a war game will rarely go on forever.
Can you play War with more than 2 players?
War can be played with more than two players (a relief to my grandmother, I'm sure). It is pretty much the same game for more than two, but, obviously, each player starts with fewer cards. Each player should have an equal number of cards. If you have three players, deal out 17 cards each.
