Split a deck of 52 cards into 2 equal decks. Though people often confuse the game "Speed" for the game "Spit, " the latter is actually a more complicated version of the game, though the same principles do apply. The first thing you have to do is to split the deck in half so each player can begin to organize his piles.

Have each player organize his cards into 6 piles into 5 stock piles and 1 spit pile. If you're familiar with Solitaire or Patience, then 5 of the piles will be set up in a similar fashion. You may only have 5 face up groups. Each player should set up the stock piles and spit piles like this: The stock piles: Stack 1 has 0 cards face down and 1 card face up Stack 2 has 1 card face down and 1 card face up Stack 3 has 2 cards face down and 1 card face up Stack 4 has 3 cards face down and 1 card face up Stack 5 has 4 cards face down and 1 card face up The spit pile: Stack 6 is each player's spit pile and can be placed out on the side. These are known as the player's spit cards. 16

Begin the game by having each player flip a card from his spit pile into the center of the game. Each player should also say "spit!" as he or she does this. These cards will begin the spite pile, where each player will try to place cards of ascending or descending value from his or her stockpile.

Each player should place any cards that are face up on one of the center cards that are of ascending or descending value. When they play one of the cards in the 5 stacks, they can then flip a card that is face down into the empty space to create a new active spit card. Think of these 5 stacks as being each player's "hand". In this game, unlike in Speed, the players don't have a hand to hold.

The players should draw from the stock piles if they cannot use any of their cards. When this happens, the players should draw a card from the stock piles and place them in the center of the pile at the same time to continue the game.

When a player has played all of the cards in his 5 decks, he should hit the center deck he wants and gain it. If the other player sees this and hits the center pile of his choice first, he gets it. The idea is to take the smaller pile, if there is one, so the other player is stuck with more cards. The player who does not slap the spite pile in time takes the other pile. Whoever gets his hand on the pile first gets it. If neither player can play and one of the players has no spit cards left, then the other player has to spit alone into only one spit pile. This player can choose either of the piles, but then he has to keep spitting into only that pile for the remainder of the round. 20

Reshuffle the two spit piles to continue playing the game. Now, each player must take the remaining cards in his stockpile as well as the cards that he now owns from the spit piles and reshuffle them. The player should then place those cards into the set-up of 5 stock piles just as he did at the beginning of the game, using the remaining cards as his spit pile. One of the players may have more cards than the other. If one player doesn't have enough cards to create a spit pile after dealing all of the cards in the 5 stock piles, then there will only be one spit pile in the center of the game.
