    C. When A Pair Is Put Down
    Explanation
    In the game "Egyptian Ratscrew," it is traditionally appropriate to slap the deck when a pair is put down. Slapping the deck is a key mechanic in the game, and it is done when two cards of the same rank are played consecutively.

Slapping the deck correctly can earn the slapper the pile of cards in the middle, adding to their chances of winning the game.
