How to Play the Funniest Card Game ever!!
How to play a really fun card game and have everyone laughing!
Well, here are instructions for the funniest card game ever! We play it whenever family or friends are over and have such a blast! I'm sure you will too. This game can be called Salute the King, however, If anyone can think of a better title, I'm open to ideas. Ideal for 3-8 players of any age, but group can be larger. Kids and adults alike will enjoy it, guaranteed! Makes a great game to play among friends and family especially during the holidays!
Card Game Instructions
You will need a deck of cards, if you are a group over 8, I suggest 2 decks of cards. Decks can even be missing cards because the only ones that really matter are the Ace, King, Queen and Jack. You can also probably use a tissue box next to you because you will be laughing so hard.
OK, HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS: Deal all the cards face down. It is better if everyone has the same amount of cards, but it is not mandatory. You can designate one person to be the dealer and that person will be in charge of giving back the cards from the middle of the table to the losing player in each round. The object of the game is to get rid all your cards. The first person to do that is declared the winner. The game can continue on, though until you get fed up of playing, have run out of kleenex, or that your stomach begins to hurt from all the laughing!
Now Let's Play!
Get out the Kleenex ready!
Every player must now, one by one, turn over the top card on their pile without looking at it first and place it in the middle of the table. As soon as the first person to reveal an Ace, King, Queen or Jack, here is what EVERYONE in the group must do:
Ace- Stand up
Queen- Put hand over heart and bow (remaining seated)
Jack- Start clapping.
Word of advice: You really can create your own gestures however these are the ones that we used.
So, the cards are being turned over one by one and landing in a pile in the middle of the table , and then, as soon as someone reveals a King- everyone must salute. The last person to salute loses this round and gets all the cards from the pile. The game continues, cards are being placed in the middle of the table, Oh an Ace! Everyone must stand up! The last person to stand up, once again gets the cards from the pile. Game continues and oops! a Jack, everyone must start clapping and finally when the Queen shows up, well you get the idea, right?.
It is important to not stop play every time someone receives the cards from the pile as it slows down the game. As soon as the loser gets the pile of cards that are in the middle, the game must continue on without any pause. The funny thing about this game is that because it is fast paced, people tend to forget which gestures they are supposed to do and just follow what others are doing (which is sometimes incorrect) or do the wrong gesture at the wrong time.
Have fun playing!!
Be Original - Create New Gestures
You can create your own gestures depending on your audience. Here are some suggestions:
1- Flap arms and make noise like a chicken
2- Make monkey gestures and sounds
3- Do the "YMCA" jig

Different games to get the family together - Have fun playing these classic games!
Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer family card games to the newer PC or video games. Nowadays when families are all at home they tend to each go their own separate ways, one goes on their computer, another one plays XBOX and still another is talking on her cellphone. The nice thing about card or board games is that it brings the family together.
