1. ## Homework Create Crazy 8's card game

Hey all,
I'm having trouble with making the code translating and the logic (how will the computer know which card is which).
I am able to break it down and try to see I would need to write out the code. The assignment is:

The mission of this assignment is to realize a "Crazy Eights" card game using a standard 52-card deck. In this assignment, you will be playing with other 3 people whose card turns are automatically generated according to the next rules:
find the same number of any suit
find the same suit
use any eight and declare the suit of the most occurring suit in hand (e.g., select H if HHHCCDS in hand)
draw from the deck until finding any of the above
You need to implement the card selection in this order. Each player is given 6 cards at the beginning of the game. You are the first player, and anyone who used up all cards will win. Game also ends when all cards in the stockpile are used. You should check all the potential input errors. The first card in the pile may be a crazy eight, in which case use it as a selection condition of suit or reshuffle the pile to choose another non crazy eight card (choice is up to you). Note that this version of Crazy Eight can discard only one card at a time and needs to draw from deck until an eligible card is found (added 5/1).
You must display all kinds of transactions happening in the progress of the game. At your turn, typing "?" will show hands of others (cheating option). The next session shows an example game sessions. Observe carefully and adapt this output format as much as possible -- points will be deducted if we found yours too much deviated from.
