How to play: Big Two

Big Two (Choh Dai Di) is an Asian card game in which the central goal is being the first player to get rid of all your cards in hand. A hand has 13 cards. As the name suggests, twos are the highest ranking card in Big Two.

Cards may be played in the following ways:

  • Single cards
  • Pairs
  • Three of a Kind
  • Poker Hands (five card hands like a Straight, Flush, or Full House)
