Old maid is a Victorian card game for two to eight players probably deriving from an ancient gambling game in which the loser pays for the drinks. It is known in Germany as Schwarzer Peter, in Sweden as Svarte Petter, in Denmark as Sortpeter. The game spawns an element of bluffing, commonly used in poker. In this game each player gets ten cards. If you have any pairs of cards, click both cards to discard them. On your turn, click a card in the hand of the player on your right to take it. If you get a pair, click each card to discard it. Play continues, with each player drawing cards from the player on their right and discarding any pairs. Eventually one player will be left with the the Old Maid card. That ends the game, and the possessor of the Witch card loses the game.
