Speed the card game for the Windows Phone, Windows 8, Facebook, AppUp, and web.

Speed a card game also known as Spit or Slam, is very fast-paced game and it could result in damage to the cards — so play this on the phone and don’t ruin your actual playing cards.

Speed is a game for two players of the shedding family of card games, in which each player tries to get rid of all of his cards. Speed is a game associated with the game Nertz.

Objective: To play all your cards first.

How to Play:

-Each player is dealt five cards to form a hand, and each player is dealt 15 cards face down to form a draw pile. If you are playing with jokers, you use them as wild cards and give each draw pile 16 cards. A stack of five cards, placed face down on each side between the players, serves as a replacement pile. Finally, two cards are placed face down in the center between the replacement piles.

-You may play a card in your hand by discarding it in the “Play Pile” if the card is 1 number/value higher or lower. (e.g. 5 can be played on a 6 or 4, a Queen can be played on a King or Jack)

-A 2 may be played on an Ace and a Ace may be played on a 2.

-You may have up to 5 cards in your hand at a single time. When you have less than 5 cards in your hand you may draw from your “Draw Pile”

-First player to play all of his/her cards wins!
