Spit card game is a great concentration game.
Each player picks a card. The high card holder shuffles and deals all the cards, one at a time, face down.
Don't look! Each picks ten random cards and lays them out as follows.
The rest of the cards are piled face down to the left of each players' cards. This is the "spit" pile.
When ready to play, both yell "One, two, three. Spit!" At "Spit!" both turn their top cards from their spit piles over and put them face up in the center.
Very quickly, both players try to play face up cards from their 4 card row on to their middle stacks.
Cards can only be played if the face up card in their row of cards is one above or one below the middle card - suit doesn't matter.
If a face up card is playable, the face down card below it on the row of cards has to be turned face up.
This newly turned up card can then become a playable card and can be played on the middle stack.
Each player continues playing cards into the middle stack, going up or down in sequence quickly, trying to beat the other player to a place where they can both put a card.
When neither player can play any more cards from their row of cards, they yell "Spit!" and each puts his top spit pile card in the middle.
Each player tries to play cards from his card row on to center stacks. If both run out of plays, they shout "Spit!" and put new cards from their spit piles out.
If a player uses his spit pile but has cards in her card rows, she has to "spit" with the face up card farthest to the left.
The winner of the Spit card game is the first player who gets rid of all his cards.
