War is a card game typically involving two players. It uses a standard French playing card deck. Due to its simplicity, it is played most often by children. The deck is divided evenly among the two players, giving each a down stack. In unison, each player reveals the top card of their deck - this is a 'battle' - and the player with the higher card takes both the cards played and moves them to the bottom of their stack.
