Egyptian Ratscrew, commonly known as Egyptian War, is a a card game for two players. The game is not unlike Slapjack, though the rules are slightly more in depth. Players alternate playing a card down until a face card is played. The next player is then challenged to play a face card in a certain number of tries.
If the challenged player successfully plays a face card, then they become the challenger and the other player must do the same. When a player is unable to play a face card, then the challenger takes the pile of cards. When a player runs out of cards, then they lose.
