I think at some stage we may all have had the odd game or two.Even now they have games for children, and of course there are always the odd fav's for us bigger kids.
One way to use up some spare time, and have some fun.
If you like some fancy ones like in my pic, 22 crt gold they will set you back just over $US 200.00
Yes. I often play patience but my favourite is canasta which teaches you to watch which cards are disposed of by the other players in the hope that it helps you (and/or your partner) win the game. We played regularly with friends alternating dinner and houses. Lots of fun if you can catch your opposition with a handful of cards they can't put down on the table. Nowadays its more Uno and other games played with grand children and Mahjong played on line as I find that more challenging now.
Yes. I remember fondly playing cards with my mum and my aunt during the school holidays in summer. Mum would wash the dishes after dinner and then we would sit down to play some card games. I cant remember exactly what we played, except we did play 500, possibly others. If they couldn't play, I would play patience. It was lots of fun.
Yes, many variations of card games.
I teach Cribbage at U3A.
The game is extremely popular especially in England, Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia.
The game helps with maths as it is a numbers based game.
There are many varieties of the original game.
