Caravan decks have a minimum of 30 cards that can be purchased from merchants or looted from dead bodies. The goal is to select the cards that will get you between 22 and 26 consistently, while also giving you defensive cards to use against your opponent. First, get the following cards: 10s, 9s, 8s, 7s, 6s, Kings, Jacks, Aces, and two Jokers. The Jacks, Aces and Jokers are defensive plays so use Jacks to remove cards from your opponent. Use Ace and Joker cards to remove all cards of your Ace's suit. For example, an Ace of Spades and a Joker will eliminate all spades from the table. Kings will double whatever they are placed on. First lay down your highest or lowest cards first to start the "base" of your caravan. Note: Don't use 10 + 9 + 8 because it results in 27; or 6 + 7 + 8 because it results in 21 (unless you put your Ace down after the 8 to make it 22). Every play between those are a win. You can get a ton of items and Caps by playing Caravan. Find vendors with lots of Caps and items. Purchase all the items you can afford from them, then challenge them to a few games of Caravan to win back all your money.
