A standard deck, jokers included, is a dungeon. Shuffle the deck and draw 4 cards, display them before you, this is a room. A room ends when all the cards are folded.

♦ Diamonds are shields
♥ ︎Hearts arepotions
♠ Spades are monsters
♣ ︎Clubs and Jokers are also monsters

♥︎ Potions

You begin with a max of 21 health points and can never go above. You can only drink one potion at a time, taking another will make you sick and result in no extra healing. Potions are equal to their value and face cards (J,Q,K,A) each are equal to 11.

♦ Shield Cards

Equipping a shield allows you to absorb the damage difference from a monster value. Shields can only defend monsters in descending value and if you use a shield on a monster with higher or equal value to the previous, it will break.

If you have an 8 shield equipped, by attacking a 9 monster you suffer 1 damage.

Broken shields leave you unarmored, and you take full damage. A shield card will replace a previously folded shield card. Shields are equal to their value and face cards(J,Q,K,A) each are equal to 11.

♣♠ Monster Cards

Monster cards are equal to their value, and face cards are as follows J is 11, Q is 13, K is 15, A is 17; Jokers are both equal to 21.

Running away

Once you have dealt with at least 3 cards, you can move onto the next room(set of 4 cards), moving the remainder card to the bottom of the deck. You can run away from a room you have not interacted with, once in a row.
