Poohead is a game where there is no winner...there is only the Poohead. The Poohead is the last player to remain in the game. The object of the game is to play all of your cards as quickly as possible. Once you have succeeded in playing all of your cards, you are out and are guaranteed to not be the Poohead...at least for that round. Game play then continues clockwise around the table until all but one player has played their cards. This player then becomes the new Poohead!
Step 2: Game Setup
Using the standard deck of 52 cards, remove any Joker(s) and/or other advertisement cards outside of the 52 Ace-King cards and shuffle the deck.
Deal three cards face down on the table to each player.
Deal three more cards to each player and have them place the cards face up, one on top of each of their face-down cards. Do not look at these cards.
Deal three final cards face down to each player. These cards will comprise the player’s starting hand, thus each player takes them
and holds them in their hands.
Place the remaining cards on the center of the table. This remainder of the starting deck will constitute the draw pile for the game.
After everyone has received their nine cards (3 face-down, 3 face-up, 3 in their hand), each player may then trade out cards from their hand for any of the three face-up cards, taking the face-up card and putting it into their hand and putting a card from their hand to where the face-up card was (on top of a face-down card). The new card is also placed face-up. Players may do this as many times as they desire before the start of the game.
