You could use this simple playing card generator for a variety of different solitaire-style games for the computer or drinking games with friends when you have no deck of cards and are using your phones. A couple of fun ways you can use this can be found below.
Draw three cards as your first poker hand, determine your best hand, and add it to your memory bank. Now, draw another hand, this time with one more card. If this hand beats your previous hand, do it again, adding another card. See how far you can get. You want each hand to beat your previous, but only by a small fraction to each hand is still beatable. The best we've seen is nine cards.
Every only child has played this. Draw two cards. The left card is yours and the right card is your imaginary opponent's card.
Never Ending FUBAR
Similar to King's Cup, FUBAR is played with all the cards shuffled into a neat deck, so it's easy to play it with this random app for your smartphone or tablet. Set the randomizer to just one card and, going in a clockwise direction, have each player in the circle hit the button. Each card has a rule (listed below). The exciting thing about this, since there is no 'end' to the deck, it's the never ending game of FUBAR.
|2:||picker takes two drinks|
|3:||picker takes three drinks|
|4:||Questions - You look at the person of your choice and ask them a question, they must answer your question with a question to someone else. The person who screws up and doesn't answer with a question must drink.|
|5:||GIVE five drinks|
|6:||Never Have I Ever - the person who picked the card says something they've never and the people who have must drink. If no one in the group has done it either, the picker must drink as many drinks as there are opponents.|
|7:||Seven in Heaven - pick a partner, then each of you take seven drinks.|
|8:||Categories - the picker selects a category, then each player in order must list something that falls into that category. The first person to mess up drinks.|
|9:||Rhyme - the picker says a word, going clockwise, each player must then say a word that rhymes with it, until someone screws up and has to drink.|
|10:||Social - everyone take a drink!|
|J:||Action Jackson - the picker selects a random action (hands on your head, finger in your nose, thumb on a table, moose antlers) and performs this whenever they want. The rest of the players must follow suit. The last one to do so must drink. This rule continues until the next Jack is drawn.|
|Q:||all the queens drink - a special drink reserved for the girls, though admittedly this is a little less clear for the drag set, so we'll leave this to you to decide.|
|K:||all the kings (guys) drink|
|A:||Waterfall - hopefully you're an avid drinker and already know what this is. If not, everyone starts to drink at the same time. The person who selected the card can stop whenever they want. The person to their left then stops when they want, and so forth. Unfortunately, you can't stop till the person to your right has given up. You'll want a full beer for this one!|
