these two induction card games that I think are interesting because they are examples of games that use induction and also cards but that they are not exactly like Eleusis.

The first game is "Which card wins?":

The basic rule is that every player places face up a card and the dealer says (after he designed a secret rule, e. g. "the red card with lower value" or "the card with value most near to the sum of red cards") which player has won the round. I think are possible also the responses "More of one card win" and "No card wins"

The second game is "Hypothesis card game":

http://ed.fnal.gov/arise/guides/bio/1-Scientific%20Method/1d...

The basic rule is that the player places up a card and the dealer (after he designed a secret rule, e. g. "to a red card answer with an odd card and to a black card answer with a black card" or "to a card answer with a card with the sum is an even value") answer with another card. It is possible the answer "No card".

I think that with these two variants can be interesting design other variants and rule change (e.g. the players can play not only single cards but also sets of cards and in the first game the dealer says which set wins and in the second game he answers with another set).

Bye.
