How to Play Rapid Fire ( the Card Game)

Are you tired of sitting around the house bored? Then you should try playing Rapid Fire! All you need is a deck of cards.


  1. 1
    Shuffle your deck and hold it as you would in a game of Slap jack (cards face down in one hand).
  2. 2
    Pull out one card from your deck and lay it on your playing surface.
  3. 3
    If the card was a number that you don't have you keep it.
  4. 4
    If the card was a face card (king, Queen, Jack, Ace, Joker) you have to put it and a card of the same color into the discard pile (if you a have one) and if not you can choose any colored card to move from the playing surface into the discard pile with it. If it is the first card of the game just put the face in the discard pile and move on.
  5. 5
    If the card was a number card with the same color and number of a card you have already played you put this card and the card with the same number and color in the discard. If there isn't a card with the same color but there is one with the same number then only this card goes into the discard pile.
  6. 6
    The object of the game is to have number cards 2-10 in front of you. When you have numbers 2-10 in front of you you win!
  7. 7
    When you run out of cards take your discard pile, shuffle it, and make it your new hand (or for a short game you lose).
