    Speed is a game for two players of the matching and shedding family of card games, like Spit or Slam, in which each player tries to get rid of all of his cards first.

    Objective: To play all your cards first.

    How to Play:

    Each player is dealt five cards to form a hand, and each player is dealt 15 cards face down to form a draw pile. If you are playing with jokers, you use them as wild cards and give each draw pile 16 cards. A stack of five cards, placed face down on each side between the players, serves as a replacement pile. Finally, two cards are placed face down in the center between the replacement piles.

    Play cards from your "Hand" to the "Play Pile" if the card is higher or lower by 1 number or value. A 3 can be played on a 2 or 4 and a Jack can be played on a Queen or 10. The Ace's value is 1.

    You can block your opponent from playing if you place your card faster.

    You can have up to 5 card in your hand at all times. Refill your hand from your "Draw Pile".

    First player to play all of his/her cards wins!
