Letter War

My youngest is having some trouble deciphering letter case and with recognizing a couple letters.  So, how to make learning letters fun?

I came up with Letter War.  This is like the standard card game of War but instead of a deck of playing cards you print out a deck with upper and lower case letters on the cards.  Now play the game with the letter deck and score like this:

  • Uppercase beat lowercase letters.
  • The ranking from lowest to highest is: a..z,A..Z
  • If the same lower and upper case letter is played then it is war.  This is less common in this deck of course.
Pretty simple I think.  Let's look at some examples:
  • E and t are played: A wins
  • A and a are played: War
  • J and M are played: M wins
  • c and v are played: c wins
