BWC TRASH















BWC Trash is a great two player game for kids of all ages and can be played a couple of different ways and is played at level 3. You can use the letters on the cards to play alphabetical or the numbers on the cards to play numerical.  The game is designed to help younger kids with their numbers or with the alphabet, but is an easy and fun game for most anybody.

Object of the Game
Get all the cards in your hand face up in alphabetical or numerical order, depending on how you are playing, before your opponent.

Version 1
In this version, only three hands are played for the game.  The first and second hand is played with nine cards, and the third hand is played with eight cards.  The first hand you turn up your cards 1-9 or A-I. The second hand you turn up your cards 10-18 or J-R.  The third hand you turn up your cards 19-26 or S-Z. 
The order of the cards is left to right.
Note – For younger kids they may want to play the first hand (1-9 or A-I) over and over until they get good at it before going to the second hand.  Then go to second hand over and over and then the third       hand over and over and then go to playing all three hands.

Deal
On the first hand, cut for deal with high card dealing.  On subsequent hands, the winner of the previous hand is the dealer.  Deal number of cards per hand being played face down in a row in front of each player.  The remainder of the cards are placed face down between players as a draw pile.  The top card from the draw pile is placed face up creating a discard pile.  Non dealer plays first.

Play
Player may take the top card from the discard pile or the top card from the draw pile.  Player then determines if they can replace one of their face down cards with the card they drew.  Example – They are playing the first hand (1-9 or A-I).  The card drawn was a 2/B.  They would replace the second card in their row of cards with the drawn card face up.  They then take the card that was face down and determine if they can play it.  If they can, they continue to play.  If they can’t, they put the card on the discard pile and play goes to other player.  In this example, any card higher than a 9 or I would go to the discard pile. Also, if their card is already face up, the card would go to the discard pile.

Version 2

Deal

Example 1 – Player dealt C*********.  They need to turn up D E F G H I J K L or 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12.
Example 2 – Player dealt U*********.  They need to turn up V W X Y Z A B C D or 22 23 24 25 26 1 2 3 4.

Play
Player may take the top card from the discard pile or the top card from the draw pile.  Player then determines if they can replace one of their face down cards with the card they drew.  If they can’t, they put the card on the discard pile and play goes to other player.  If they can, they replace the card then determine if they can play it.  This continues until they can’t play and must discard and play goes to other player.
