HOME RUN RACE

Copyright 1998-2000, by Stephen W. Glenn. All rights reserved.

NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 4

EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Standard Deck

PLAY:

Players sit bridge-like.

Each player gets a set of cards in one suit.
2-King are Batter Cards
Ace is a Fly Out Card

Each player chooses a card from his hand. All players play their cards simultaneously. Whomever has the highest card hits a home run. They get one point for this. If there are any other face cards on the table (J,Q,K) the winner also gets one point for each of these. Consider them runners on base. If there are two cards tied for first place, they cancel each other out - the next highest card wins.

For example: 4, 5, J, J

The two Jacks cancel each other. The player who played the 5 gets the homerun with two runners on base (3 points)

Any time a FLY BALL OUT (Ace) card is played, no points are scored for that hand. It doesn't matter how many of these are played.

POINTS: Keep track of points scored per player. Play as many hands as you wish.

WINNER: Whomever has the most points, well, wins.
