I remember as a child playing this basic cardgame with my family. The rules are simple:
- each player gets a stack of cards and shuffles it
- with each round, all players show their first card
- the highest value gets all cards shown
- when two cards of equal value are shown, their owners put one extra card face down and another one to see who wins all.
This continues until one player wins this round. The game ends when one player has won all the cards (yes, it can take some time...)
This macro shows an automated version of the game, computer against computer. I wrote it as an exercise to see how fast Excel can draw the cards etc.
It was fun to write and it is fun to see the game develop on the screen! Feel free to use it as you like or use just some of the routines contained in the macro.
Whenever I have some time left, I might use the card-routines for other simple games.
