Objective

The goal of President is to be the first to get rid off all of the cards in your hand.

Playing the game

Number of players : 4-8

President is played with a standard 52-card deck and 2 Jokers. Following this hierarchy (highest value to lowest) : Joker,2,A,K,Q,J,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3.

Cards are dealt one at a time clockwise until all cards have been dealt. Some players may have more cards than others.

A player can play a single card or a set of cards of equal rank :

  • Double – a pair of cards of the same value (ex. 2 Kings).
  • Triple – three cards of the same value (ex. 3 fours).
  • Quadruple – four cards of the same value (ex. 4 sevens).

The first player of the round sets how many cards should be played for the entire pile.

  • Player 1 : plays 1 five, then all others players must play one card until this pile is over.
  • Player 1 : plays 2 nines, then all others players must play two cards until this pile is over.

The next player must play the same number of cards as the previous player. To play, the next player must play a higher rank card (or a higher rank group of cards for double, triple or quadruple).
Or pass if they can not play. Or pass even if they can, therefore will not be able to play any more during this pile.

  • A Joker is a "trump" card and wins any hand no matter the size of the set (ex: 1 Joker beats four 2's)

If a player played their last card, and no other player can play (or pass even if they can play), the next player available clockwise will start next pile.

End of the round

The game will continue until there is a single player left with at least a card in their hand.

The roles in the next round are:

  • President: The first player to get rid off all of their cards
  • Prime-Minister: The second player to get rid off all of their cards
  • Peasant: The second to last player to get rid off all of their cards
  • Beggar: The last player to get rid off all of their cards
  • Citizen(s): Any other players, they are considered neutral

Before next round starts :

  • The Beggar must give their two highest cards to the President. And the President must give back 2 cards of their choice to the Beggar.
  • The Peasant must give their highest card to the Prime-Minister. And the Prime-Minister must give back 1 card of their choice to the Peasant.
  • Any Citizen(s) do not exchange cards.

The Beggar will be the first player to start the next round.

Revolution

When a player plays four cards of the same rank, the hierarchy of all the cards is reversed.

For example, if 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K,A,2 is the typical order of power (from left to right), after the revolution the order of power 2,A,K,Q,J,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3.

If another revolution is played, the order would switch back to normal.

Optional rules

  • Skip - When a player plays the same number of cards of the same rank as the previous player, that skips the next person who would have played.

For example, playing a 7 on top of another 7, or a pair of 4s on another pair of 4s, the next player is skipped. You can't skip with the best card (2 or 3 in case of revolution and jokers).

Points

Each player starts with a credit of 50 points.

  • The President scores 5 points.
  • The Prime-Minister scores 0 points.
  • Each Citizen loses 5 points.
  • The Peasant loses 10 points.
  • The Beggar loses 15 points.

The game ends when a player reaches 0 point or less.
