Overview:

You are to implement a computer-based variant of the card game War. This is a two-player card game played with a standard deck of cards in which the aim of the game is to capture all cards in the deck. When one player has all 52 cards, the game is over.

Basic Play:

To begin, all 52 cards from a standard deck of cards are evenly split randomly between two players. The game plays as follows:

  • Each player turns over the top card in their deck. This is called a Battle.
  • Whichever player has the highest card claims both cards and puts them at the end of their collection. The value of the card is based on the number value, with 2 being the lowest and Ace being highest. Picture cards are ordered lowest to highest Jack, Queen, King, Ace.
  • If both cards have the same value, War breaks out (detailed below)
  • This continues until one player has all 52 cards, in which the game ends War: If the value of both cards is the same, War takes place. It has the following rules:
    • Each player takes the top 4 cards from their deck. The 4 th card is revealed. Whoever has the highest value on that 4 th card claims all cards. If it is a draw again, this process is repeated.

Game Modes:

Your game should have two modes that can be chosen at the beginning of your program:

1. Versus Computer Mode In this mode one player can play against a computer opponent

2. Simulation Mode In this mode you simulate a complete game with no human players. At the end of the game, you must report on who won, how many battles and how many wars occurred in the game
