What you will need
You do not need many materials for this game, only:
A standard deck of cards (all 52, with each of the 4 suits)
Players: 2- 6 people who know basic addition and the names of thesuits and cards
Values of the Cards
A standard deck of cards has 52 cards. There are 4 different suits:
HeartsDiamondsSpadesClubsEach of these suits has 13 different cards: the whole numbers 2 through 10,andthen the face cards. The face cards includeajack that is represented by a J,aqueen
that is represented by a Q,aking that is represented by a K, and finally the ace that is represented by an A.Post pictures of J of spadesQ of heartsK of diamondsA of clubsThe value of the number cards is in fact just that number. However, the face cardshave a value in numbers also. The jack, queen, and king areeachworth 10, and theace is worththe most, which is11.
The game is called 31 for a reason. The goal of the game is to be the player to have31 points before any of the other players, or the player with the most points in their
hand.The catch is, you can only add up points on cards of the same suit. At one time, youcan only have 3 playing cards in your hand. Therefore, your first goal is to collect cards of the same suit, either all hearts, diamonds, spades, or clubs.
Slightly awkward, mybefind a way to reword this.
Take out the “you”
This is unnecessary, youcan just take it out completely
I really like the picturesof the suits with the corresponding word
Maybe title thisObjective, you already told us the name
Maybe put the name 31in your title as well, because it is confusingthat you call in Cad in your title and then 31in the instructions.
This is slightlyconfusing, after reading further I
understand it more, but maybe put “if 31 is
not reached by any player, the player with
the most points in their hand wins.”
