War is a very simple card game for two players. Much like real war it's incredibly long and pointless. It's mostly a kids game, since it relies exclusively on luck of the draw. Like most card games it has plenty of regional variations, but the rules used on this site are the standard rules from Wikipedia. The game is played as follows:
That's all there is to it. Just a lot of clicking on cards and hoping for the best! Enjoy :)
This online version of the classic card game War was made by me. My name is Einar Egilsson and over there on the left is my current Facebook profile picture.
My son taught me this game a few years ago when we lived in Denmark. It's named "Krig" over there, which is just the literal translation of War. A number of people have requested it over the years, so I decided to do it now. It's a very simple game, there's nothing but luck involved, no logic or anything. I do realize this, so you don't have to email me telling me about it :). Still, kids like it and it was simple to make since I didn't have to code any smarts into the opponent, so here it is! I've tried to add in a few effects and stuff to make it a little more interesting, but at its core it's just an extremely simple and repetitive game!

This is version 1901 of WAR.
