Needed: 52 card deck, 5+ players, 3 tokens per player

Card Rank: King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace

Setup:  Each player is given 3 tokens to represent each player’s 3 lives.  Then each player draws 1 card, the player with the highest card is the first dealer.  The ace is always low in Chase the Ace.

Deal: Each player is dealt 1 card.

Objective: The object of the game is to avoid having the lowest ranking card at the end of each round, otherwise you will lose a token.

Play:  The player left of the dealer is first to play.  During a turn, players can decide to keep their current card or exchange cards with the player on their left.   If a player decides to exchange, the player on the left must exchange unless he/she is holding a king.  If the dealer wants to exchange his/her card, he/she will draw the top card of the discard pile.

After every player has had a turn, the cards are flipped up.  The player with the lowest ranking card loses a token.

Win: The last player with tokens wins the game.

  • Players must exchange their cards when requested, except if holding a king.  If a player has a king, and is asked to exchange, no exchange occurs and the king is flipped up.
  • A dealer cannot exchange for a king from the deck.  If a king is the top card, the dealer is stuck with his/her original card. 
  • If 2 players tie for the lowest ranking card in a round, they both lose a token.  A variation can be played where tying players are safe, and the lowest unique ranking card loses a token.
  • Once a player is out of tokens, they are out of the game.
  • If 2 players are left in the game and tie, neither player loses a token.  The final deal is re-dealt.
