Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. When you have one card left, yell the Spanish word for one, or you might have to draw two cards.

Answer: Uno

There are traditionally 108 cards in a deck of Uno cards. The player to the dealer's left puts down a color or number that matches the card already down. And then the next person goes. If they cannot go, they draw one or many cards, depending on the House rules.

When you get down to one card, you must yell "Uno," or if somebody else notices you didn't say "Uno" before the next player plays, you must draw two cards.
2. The goal of this game is to get all the other players' cards. If you get all the cards, you win. But if you have the same number or face card as the other player, you face off and whoever has the most cards wins the round.

Answer: War (Battle in the United Kingdom)

War is usually played with two people, often children. The two players get 26 cards each, and the cards face down. Simultaneously, the two players flipped the card on top over. The player with the highest car takes the two cards. But. If the players have the same card. There is a war in which both players put the following, often three, cards face down and then one face up. Whoever has the highest card wins all the cards in that pile. Players keep warring if cards are again equal until two different cards are played.

As cards go back and forth, War can take a while to play, but it can also go quickly.
3. Be the first to line up your cards from ace to ten.

Answer: Garbage

Garbage is sometimes called Trash. For 2-3 players, one deck of 52 cards is used. If there are more players, use two decks of cards. Each player gets ten cards placed horizontally face down in front of them. The other cards are placed facedown in the middle and are the drawing pile. The first player takes a card from the drawing pile and tries to put it in the right spot, from ace to ten, going left to right. Jacks and kings are wild. The queen is useless and goes directly to the garbage.

Once there is a garbage pile, players can draw from the drawing or the garbage pile. The first player to get ten cards in order wins. When only aces are needed, it is often called a "race for the ace."
4. Colored cards 1-12, wilds, and skips are in the deck. Finish all the stages first.

Answer: Phase 10

Phase 10 first came out in 1982. There are sets such as 5, 5, 5 and runs such as 1, 2, 3. You may also need specific colors, such as seven of one color. You then start with phase one, which is two sets of three. Once you complete a phase, you can play cards off others who finished as well as your own. The round is over when somebody runs out of cards, and a new round begins. Each person plays the phase that they are in. So, for instance, if one person finishes phase one, they move on to phase two, while another may still be in phase one. The first person to complete all 10 phases and get rid of their cards wins the game.

This is the original version of the game. There have since been different types of phases on the computer app. There are different phases and even numbers, so sometimes you only have to complete seven instead of ten. And they have things such as getting numbers higher than four of the same color or lower than seven or getting a run of three pairs which would be like 1,1,2,2,3,3.
5. Also called 21, the goal is to be closest to 21 without going over.

Answer: Blackjack

In Blackjack, the numbered cards are equal to that number. Jacks, queens, and kings equal ten. An Ace can equal one or eleven - usually, it is eleven unless that will make the player or dealer go over 21, then it's one.

The basic rules without the betting are: The dealer gives you two cards. Then he flips over one of his. You then chose to hit or stand. If you ask the dealer to hit you, he will give you another card. If you say stand, you will not get another card. You want to be closer to 21 than the dealer without going over. If you go over, it's called a bust, and you lose.

Cards one through ten are worth the value of the card. Jack, Queens, and Kings are worth ten and Ace is 11 or 1 depending on if you are close to 21 or not.

Blackjack is the most popular casino game in the world.
6. Don't get stuck with that one particular card, or you will lose.

Answer: Old Maid

Old Maid can be played with regular cards or a special Old Maid deck. The specialty decks have a card that says Old Maid; if using a standard card deck, add a joker or take out a card (usually the Queen of Clubs), so one card will not have a match; that card then becomes the Old Maid.

All the cards are dealt; it doesn't come out even, it's okay. The players look at their cards, remove all matches of two, and lay them face up. The dealer then holds up his remaining cards, and the player to the left picks one. She sees if she has another match and, if so, adds the match with her other matches. If not, she keeps it and lets the player to her left choose one. This continues until all the pairs are formed, and the player with the Old Maid loses.
7. One player: "Do you have a three?" Another player: "No, __ ___."

Answer: Go Fish

Go Fish is traditionally played with a standard deck of cards. However, now there are also unique Go Fish cards as well. Each player is dealt five to seven cards (the more playing, the fewer cards dealt). The first player asks another player, "Do you have a..." followed by a number card, jack, queen, king, or ace if playing for pairs; the player hands over one card if they have it. If playing for books or the card in each suit (clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds), the player hands over all the cards of what is asked.

If the player being asked does not have the card, he will tell the other person, "go fish." The player asking then draws a card from the draw pile. If they have a match or a book from that card, they can put it down and go again. If not, their turn is over. The game continues until all the cards have been made into books or matches, and whoever has the most books or matches wins.
8. Players play at the same time. Say the name of the game and go as fast as you can, and when finished, slap the smallest pile.

Answer: Spit

Spit is a two-player game using all 52 cards in a standard deck. Each player gets 26 cards.

Set your cards up in five rows, with the first row having five cards, the second four, etc., down to one card in the last row. The first card in each row should be face-up the rest face-down. These are the stock.

The extra cards go in the middle face down; there will be two piles one from each player. These are the spit cards.

Both players yell, "Spit." This means the game is underway.

Only using one hand - move your face-up spit cards to the stock pile one higher or one lower. For example, a ten can go on a nine or a Jack. Aces can go on Kings and twos. You can use either spit deck to place your cards. each time you take a face-up card of a stock pile flip the next card. If a pile empties you can move one card over so you have up to five piles.

When both players can no longer play any cards. They yell "Spit" again in tandem and flip the next spit card over and continue. This continues until someone runs out of cards and puts their hand on what they believe is the smallest deck. That player takes that pile. The other player gets the other pile.

The game continues from the set-up set again the same way. When a player has less than fifteen cards he will not have a spit pile in the middle. First player to lose all his cards wins.
9. Lay all the cards out; flip two and try to get a match.

Answer: Concentration

Concentration is sometimes called memory. If the first player gets a match, he goes again. If not, he flips his cards over, and the second player goes, and the game continues until all the cards are gone. Whoever has the most matches wins the game.
10. You play this card game by yourself.

Answer: Solitaire

There are many versions of solitaire now, but this is how to play the original. First, put a card face-up and six more face-down in that row. Row two starts with a face-up card overlapping the second card of the first row. Then five more cards face down go across, overlapping the cards from row one. The third row is the same, starting with a face-up card in the third spot and the others face-down. Do this until all rows have one face-up card. Place the other cards in a pile; these are the draw cards.

Move cards around, so they descend from king to two alternating colors. Only kings can be moved into an empty spot. Aces go on top, and then twos, threes, et cetera, until the four kings are on top. On the top, you have to build by suit.

If you cannot move anything, flip three cards and use the one on top. Do this until you can play again. Once all draw cards have been flipped over, flip unused cards back without shuffling to be used again for drawing. The game ends when all four suits, from ace to king, are face-up on top, and you win, or you cannot play any further and lose.
