Naming it after myself because Why Not! cool

My sister and I came up with our own variant:
- Create 2 identical decks of cards. The easiest way to do this is to have 2 different sets -- same size, different visuals -- to easily separate them afterward. OR you can take 1 standard deck of cards and have one player take all the reds and the other take all the blacks.
- You each reveal a card. The winner keeps his/her card and places is it at the bottom of his/her deck. The loser discards the losing card.
- All other rules stay the same.

This leads to a game that "escalates," as all the low cards are quickly eliminated, and the game gets reduced to increasingly high-valued cards. It also adds consequence, such that when you lose that King to an Ace it REALLY hurts.

That's it!

(To reduce the swing of Wars, place ONE hidden card and then reveal a 2nd open card after that one.)
