Note: This document may make it unclear which cards are connected and separated. If they connect diagonally to a card next to them those are connected. If they are horizontally or diagonally beside each other they are disconnected in that way. I marked the last position to help see this.

Rules: The deck gets shuffled and arranged in a pyramid. Then you pick a rank from Ace to King with 1 character except 10 for 10. You remove those cards, all that are left, and then select from all the different islands all but one that takes more than half. You take your Islands. You try to remove more cards than your opponent.
