How to Play Shithead (the card game)

Some people are will to try to tell you this card game is called Palace, but I’m sorry, if you call it Palace no one is going to know what you are talking about. The goal is to not be the last person with cards or you’ll be “The Shithead!”

This is a modern card game that comes from Europe. It is wildly popular, especially with young backpackers who travel around while teaching it to their new friends.

Thanks to all the Instagrammers that contributed photos and clips for this video! If you would like to appear in a video, I announce photo requests on instagram. Follow me

Musical soundtrack created by Kubbi Good stuff Kubbi, I love the track.

  • So throughout the game after the starting play, are you allowed to swap your fave up cards?

  • I learnt this game acctually not knowing the name so imagine my suprise when I learn its called shithead. Also when I learnt it 7 was also a wild card! It basically skipped your turn and the next player had to beat or match the card under the 7.

  • Me and my friends play this with multiple decks of cards. We increase the face downs to 5/6.

    We also play elimination with just one face down each.

    There's Horde where up to 10 decks are played. You each have 10 facedowns and are able to reserve up to 4 cards from play, which would in turn reduce the hand to 6. The played reserve would count to reduce your overall hand health so playing would it is consequential.

    Lastly is Boss mode. One person is dealt 10 face downs whilst the rest have 3. The winner is determined by who survived the longest.

    All can also be played with transparent 3, lower then 7, miss a go 8 and high Jokers. Jokers only need 2 played to cancel the pile out and transparent 3 can be placed as as a set but can't be used to cancel. Eg 9,9,9,3. 9,3,9,3.

  • Very fun game!  in the variation that I learned, it is mostly similar except the power cards which all can be played at any times.  Power cards are:  2 – resets the deck; can go on top of any card  4 – invisible, "match" card; it can be played any time  7 – play lower or equal to 7 (wild cards are okay to play, so other player can also play a 2, 4 or 10 on it as they are also wild cards); it can also be played anytime  10 – burns the deck; it can be played anytime( including the 7)

  • Interesting.

    Every version I played had the following wild cards.

    2 – restarts the deck
    3 – invisible (see through)
    7 – must play lower or same as 7
    10 – burn the deck

    Some houses play 8 miss a go.

  • In engineering school we call it "engineer" because everyone plays it, also we have a rule that you can use a 5 anywhere, but the catch is that the next person will lose a turn, so for example in a game of three people let's say you're Person B, and Person A throws an ace card and you're next, but you don't have an ace, a 10 or a 2 but you have a 5, so you throw it. That means that Person C loses one turn and then it's Person A's turn, so what next? Well, he now has to put a card higher than ace, equal or a special card (2,5,10) because even tho 5 was the last card thrown, it doesn't count as a number.

    Another example to understand how a 5 works:

    Person A: 3
    Person B: 6
    Person C: 9
    Person A: Q
    Person B: 5
    Person C: Doesn't have a turn beacuse person B threw a 5
    Person A: K (He need to continue as if there were still a queen there, ignoring the "5")

  • Nice Job! I tried to learn this game elsewhere and still didn't get it. But this video, was very clear. I like that you take your time. I watched it and completely understood the game. Also.. the production quality is great! Such clear color and great sound. Thank you. This channel deserves more attention, you knocked it out of the park.
