War - Use your sports cards instead of a regular deck of cards to play this classic card game.

  1. Divide your cards evenly in two or more piles, depending on the number of players (Yes, you can play with more than two)
  2. Use the card numbers on the back of the cards to determine the winner
  3. Two get more "Wars", I would suggest using just the 100's column. Examples: 215 beats 175, 525 beat 375, 325 vs 382 = WAR

Dice Baseball - Who needs X-Box? Use your cards and a little imagination to play a baseball game.

  1. Pick players at each position from your cards.
  2. The team in the field lays their cards out at each position around the "Diamond"
  3. The team at bat sets their lineup. Players (Cards) come up to bat.
  4. Roll the dice to determine whether you get a hit or out.
  5. You can use one or two dice, depending on how complicated you want to make it.

1 Dice:  1 = Single, 2 = Double, 3 = Ground Out, 4 = Flyout, 5 = Strikeout, 6 = Home Run!

2 Dice:  2 = Triple, 3 = Double Play or Ground Out, 4 = Walk, 5 = Flyout, 6 = Double, 7 = Single, 8 = Strikeout, 9 = Stolen Base, 10 = Home Run, 11 = Sacrifice or Bunt Single, 12 = Hit By Pitch

 

Flipping - A fun variation on WAR played with two or more people

  1. Hold a card in your hand while standing.
  2. At the same time, both people drop their card to the floor, trying to get the card to spin or flip.
  3. If both cards land face up or face down, it's a tie. The cards remain on the floor. Both players flip again.
  4. If one person's card lands face up and the other lands face down, then the person who's card landed face up wins the cards on the floor.

Guess Who I Am - A great way to learn more about the players and teams

  1. Select a card from your stack. Do not show the other players who it is.
  2. Using the information on the back of the card, give selected information to the other players. Example: This Boston Redsox outfielder hit .321 in 2007.
  3. The other players try to guess who the player is after each you give each clue.
  4. You get up to 5 clues to guess the player. If you guess correctly after the first clue, you get 5 points. If you guess correctly after the 2nd clue, 4 points...and so on down to 1 point for a correct guess after 5 clues.
  5. There is no penalty for guessing wrong.
  6. The first player to 25 points wins (You can change this to whatever you want).
