I could not find a rule book for the shedding style card game I learned as a child in the 1970s—so I wrote one. The excerpt below is from HOW TO: Stick Your Neighbor (Without Starting War).
The host combines the two decks of cards to create one large deck and shuffles. Please note that shuffling 108 cards requires a certain degree of skill and finesse. It’s preferable not to allow yourself to get in a bad mood before the game begins if you accidentally drop some or all of the cards to the floor and must crawl on your hands and knees to retrieve them. Instead, save your frustration for later. Players generally have many opportunities to be frustrated during a game and besides, practice is the best way to master the art of shuffling.
