Fibonacci card game

Fibonacci is a two person card game played with a standard 52-card deck without jokers. The aim of the game is to get rid of the cards in your hand by building Fibonacci series with the cards on the table. A Fibonacci series is a series where the next number is the sum of the two previous numbers. If a player can play a fitting card he must play. If the player can not play a card fitting the series, he has to draw one card from the deck and play it if it fits. After this it is the next player's turn. The game ends when a player plays the last card in his hand or when there are no more cards in the deck and no player can play a fitting card.

The structure of the game

Which cards fit and where can they be played

The cards have the number values printed on them and face cards as follows: Jack = 11, Queen = 12, King = 13. The ace counts as 14 in the hand but 1 on the table. The suit does not matter.

A card fom the hand can be placed in the following ways: An example. The table reads 2,5,J. The possibilities are: 7 can be played either on the 2 or the 5; K can be played on 2 or J; Since 5 + J > 14 the 5 or the J can be cut down to 1 by either a 5 or a J respectively.

Lets say that the player also has a Q in his hand it makes sense to play the 7 on the 2 instead of the 5 because then the table would read 7,5,J, which opens a place for the Q (5+7). Of course there is the opponents turn in between so anything can happen but a table of 7,5,J gives more opportunities than 2,7,J if the player happens to have a Q. If the player had a 5 instead of a 7, he might instead cut down the 5 on the table to a 1 so then the table would read 2,1,J which also would be suitable for a Q next turn.
