War Cards Camping Game
|This Game is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Required:||deck of cards - enough for each camper to have a card|
|Instructions:||Shuffle the cards and hand out a card to each camper, telling everyone not to reveal their card to anyone.|
Divide the group in half, each half creating a line with the first camper in line facing the other team.
Just like the normal game of War, the first card on each team is revealed. The highest card takes the lower card (and camper) to the end of the highest card's line.
If two cards are equal, a War occurs. The next three campers in each line step forward but do not reveal their cards. The 4th camper reveals his card and the higher card wins ALL 7 cards over to his team.
Continue on until all cards are on one side or you reach a defined time limit. Keep the turns going as fast as possible to keep the teams moving and engaged.
