I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

Looking to record some plays of a card game, with a regular deck of cards, I always called Speed. Link to rules. I found games like Hearts and Spades. Does this game go by a different name in the database?

Rules:

Two player game, played with a regular deck of cards, each player has a pile of cards. Two cards in the middle are flipped and each player, with a hand of five cards, plays a card, either one value above or below, on the center piles. Always draw back up to five cards. First player to play all cards wins.

Yes. We called it Spit.
Wikipedia does too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spit_(card_game)
but says not to confuse it with Speed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_(card_game)

which is hard because I think these are variants of the same game.

At any rate I think here is where BBG is keeping such things.
Spit!
California Spit

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Spit (the wikipedia link) is not what he's describing. Spit has a mini solitaire tableau each, Speed has a hand.

Used to love playing Spit. Will totally teach my kids this evening.

but aside from that, the same game, no? i.e. how close do you have to be before you have a variant and not a new game?
