Game description

The candidate gets a deck of cards, with one card missing. The deck has to be shuffled well. How long does it take each player to find out which card is missing?


Option 1: 2 players compete against each other in an attempt to find the missing card.
Option 2: The cards must be sorted and placed side by side.
Option 3: The cards may not be fanned out, stored or placed side by side. However, the candidate can stack and resort them in his hands.
Variant 4: The candidates are shown all cards one by one. Every revealed card then is put face down on the table. This passage is repeated until the candidates find out which card is missing. However, if he calls out the wrong card, (for example, because he is guessing) he receives a minus point.


The fastest candidate wins
