The Deck and Dealing

President uses a standard deck. All cards are dealt out equally among the players.

Play

In President, suits do not matter and cards of the same value can be played together.

One player begins by playing a card or a group of cards. Other players must beat previous cards played, by playing a higher value card or card group. Sets of cards can only be beaten by groups of the same size. For instance, a pair of Fours cannot be beaten by a single Five or three Sixes.

Players can also pass, either by choice or because they have no valid cards to play. If all players pass on a particular card, the current play pile is discarded and whoever played the last card starts the new pile.

The goal is to get rid of all cards in hand.

Scoring

Players score penalty points depending on the order in which they got rid of all of their cards. The first player to do so scores no penalty points, the last player scores 2 penalty points and all other players score 1 penalty point.

Winning

The game ends when one player has accrued 4 penalty points - this can also be set to 5 or 6 points. The winner is whoever has the fewest points.

President can also be played for a set number of rounds, after which the game ends. The options are 3, 5 or 10 rounds.

Variations

Two High

Two can either be the highest or lowest value card.

Equal Rank Allowed

Players can play cards matching the value of the previous cards.

Any Larger Set

Players can beat a set with a larger set of cards with any value.
