Beat Jack Out Of Doors is a game of equal chance.
A pack of cards is divided equally between two players, the two stacks of cards are then placed on the table face down. The first player lays down his top card face up, and the opponent plays his top card on it, and this goes on alternately as long as no Ace, King, Queen, or Jack appears.
If either player turns up such a card, his opponent has to pay a penalty: four cards for an Ace, three for a King, two for a Queen, or one for a Jack. When he has done so, the player of the penalty card wins the hand, takes all the cards in the pile and places them under his pack. The game continues in the same fashion, However, if the second player turns up another face card while paying the original penalty, his payment ceases and the first player must pay to this new card.
The hand is lost by the player who, in playing his penalty, turns up no face card. Then, his opponent acquires all of the cards in the pile. When a single player has all of the cards in the deck in his stack, he has won.
