: when you begin a game of asshole, you’re not allowed to leave, or really do virtually anything else of your choosing, unless you’re president. The object of the game is to get rid of all your cards before everyone else. Threes reverse the order to counter-clockwise, then back if another 3 is laid down. Depending on the rules you may have to win a certain number of games before you can become the official president. This is a wild card or two 3’s played is a clear.
Here are the roles of the players:
Aces are the highest non-special card, and 3s are the lowest (2 is a special card). First to finish is president next game, second is vice president, second-to-last is vice-asshole, and last is asshole.
