Low to High


All face cards are removed from the deck. Two Players face off at a time.


A person (preferably one that is not playing in the face-off) flips a card then the two players race to come up with a word that starts with the first letter of the number on the card (i.e. "toe" for 3). The word may not contain or relate to the number. For example, if a 5 is flipped, "fifteen" is not acceptable. The word must be real (in a dictionary). The player that loses must take a drink. The winner then "faces-off" with the next player, and so on.

Tournament Style (Variation A)

A Bracket system can be used for "face-offs", rather than a winner continues method.
