How to play Old Maid

The goal of Old Maid is to form and discard pairs of cards and not to be left with the odd card (a wildcard such as a Teacher, Fish, Witch, Grandpa or Grandma) at the end.

  • Use the “odd” card as the “Old Maid”.
  • Shuffle the playing cards and deal them out to the children one at a time until all of the cards have been dealt.
  • Each child matches then removes all pairs from their hand and places them face down in front of them.
  • You lead. Spread out your cards and the first child on your left draws a card from your hand. If the child has a match or pair they remove that pair from their hand and place it in front of them.
  • The child then offers their cards to the player on their left. Play proceeds in this way until all cards have been paired except one – The “Old Maid” card, which cannot be paired - and the player who has that card is the winner.
