Implementation of the shithead card game. Amusing and entertaining game to kill a few minutes.
These are the rules that I have always used playing Shithead. There are many variations possible, so this might not be exactly how you are used to playing the game.
1- The purpose of Shithead is to lose all your cards by putting them on the pile. A card
that is put on the pile must be equal or higher than the top card of the pile.
2- If you have no card to put on the pile you must take the entire pile, and it's the
3-There are always three cards in your hand, if you have less than three you must draw
enough cards from the deck to get three again. After the deck is finished no more
cards are drawn.
4-There are three downwards facing cards and three upwards facing cards on the
table. You cannot play them until your hand is finished. You cannot look at a
downward facing card before playing it.
5-Before you start you can exchange cards from your hand with the upwards facing
cards on the table.
6-You can put a two on top of everything, it is the restart card.
7- You can put a five on top of everything, it is the reverse card, meaning that in the next
turn the opponent must put a card equal or lower than five.
8-You can put a ten on top of everything and it burns the pile, and you get to put out the
first card in the new pile.
9- You can put out more than one card at a time as long as they have the same rank.
Do this by right clicking on the cards to select them and then left click on one of
them to play them all together.
10- If there are four cards with the same rank at the top of the pile then the pile is
11- If you have no card that you can put on top of the pile then you may draw the top
card of the deck and put on the pile, if it is a legal move then you do not have to
take the pile.
12- You can always choose to take the pile instead of playing a card. You can also
always play the top card on the deck blindly onto the pile.
