Playing Cards High Low game

The High Low card game is a simple and entertaining game that can be played with a standard deck of playing cards. The game is often used as a fun way to pass the time or as a drinking game among friends. Here’s how you can play the High Low card game:

The objective of the game is to guess whether the next card to be drawn from the deck will be higher or lower in rank than the previous card.


  • A standard deck of 52 playing cards


  1. Shuffle the deck of cards thoroughly.
  2. Deal one card face up to start the game. This card is the reference card.


  1. The player starts by guessing whether the next card will be “High” (higher in rank) or “Low” (lower in rank) than the reference card.
  2. After making a guess, the dealer draws the next card from the deck and reveals it.
  3. If the player’s guess is correct, they win the round and can choose to continue or quit. If their guess is incorrect, they lose the round.
  4. In case of a tie (when the drawn card is of the same rank as the reference card), the player neither wins nor loses and can choose to continue or quit.
  5. The game continues until the player decides to quit or makes an incorrect guess.

The player can choose to set a winning goal before starting the game. For example, they may decide to play until they win a certain number of rounds or reach a specific score. If they reach their goal, they win the game.

Variations and Additional Rules:

  1. Betting: Players can bet on each round, with the winner receiving a predetermined amount of chips or money from the other players.
  2. Changing the Reference Card: In some versions of the game, players can choose to change the reference card if they want a different starting point.
  3. Multiple Players: High Low can be played with multiple players, with each player taking turns guessing and the dealer drawing cards.
  4. Jokers: You can include the two Jokers from the deck and treat them as wild cards, allowing players to guess whether the next card will be higher or lower than a Joker.
  5. Suit Guess: In addition to guessing “High” or “Low,” players can guess the suit (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades) of the next card. This adds an extra layer of difficulty.

Remember that High Low is a game of chance, and there is no surefire strategy for winning. It’s all about making educated guesses and having fun with friends or fellow players.
