"The gameplay of Egyptian Ratscrew appears to be a combination between that of Beggar-My-Neighbour... and the concept of slapping for cards on certain combinations, possibly derived and expanded from the gameplay of Slapjack. The origins of the name are unknown." http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Ratscrew
