I love to play Village Idiot (I'm sure it goes by other names, but I don't know them), and I am wanting to play games similar to it, mainly shorter games. Is there a definitive category or name that Village Idiot falls under, which would help me in my search for similar games?

Here is a link to the rules to the version of the game I play:

It would be good to include a quick summary of (or link to) the rules in the post itself, just in case there's more than one game out there with similar names. – goldPseudo Jan 5 '13 at 4:45

From the rules I have seen, Village Idiot is one of a handful of climbing card games. The most notable of these are The Great Dalmuti/Dilbert Corporate Shuffle.
