Over Under is a desktop game for Windows 3.1 based on a card game Mr. Podoboo and his friends played and -- as far as we knew -- made up when we were children. The rules are quite simple: Each player is dealt a hand of ten cards. The dealer then turns over the next card in the deck and puts it on the table. The first player must choose a card from his hand that is either one over or under the card on the table. The card he picks becomes the new table card. The next player repeats the process, then the next, and so on until everyone is down to one card. The player with the highest final card is the winner. A deceptively simple game but one where strategy is very important.
