At the start of each new game, each Player must make an INITIAL wager. Each Player has the choice of making a optional TIE wager, which pays 10 to 1. Each Player and the Dealer receive one (1) card "face-up." The Dealer, in turn, compares the rank of each Player's card with the rank of the Dealer's card.

Note: In situations of multiple WAR bets on a single "round," the Dealer will receive only one (1) card. After all wagers are settled, the Dealer starts a new game.
