One of my favorite past times is playing card games! It’s an affordable, entertaining, and versatile way to spend some free time. At first, I thought I could use this blog post to teach you about all of my favorite card games, but then I decided I probably couldn’t explain them very clearly. Instead, I’m linking up the rules to my top 11 favorite card games!
Below I have broken up the games by number of players so the next time you and a friend are looking for a new game, you can reference this post. On my Instagram stories I’ll verbally teach you about some of these games to help you learn.
1. Rummy 500
Since you play up to 500 points, this game will keep you entertained for quite some time. To simplify the scoring, I do the following:
A = 5 points low or 15 points high
2-9 = 5 points
10-K = 10 points
There are 11 rounds in this one, again, keeping you entertained for some time. The strategy behind this game is exciting!
I like that this one is somewhat mindless and shorter rounds. It doesn’t require a huge chunk of time to play.
Another one that is mindless but has consecutive rounds. It’s great to play if you’re trying to chat and get to know someone. You don’t need to pay too much attention to your cards.
If you have a competitive bone in your body, you’ll love this one. There are a lot of moving parts which makes it a bit more complicated to learn, but once you get the hang of it you’ll surely love it! If you don’t have a board handy, there are apps that help you keep track of your score.
Here, your hand may get slapped but this game is guaranteed to make you laugh! It’s a high energy, intense card game. There is never a dull moment playing this one.
This fast paced card game will test your mind and agility. Get rid of your cards first to win! Another great option for those rather competitive people.
8. Kings Corner
If you enjoy playing solitaire, this will be a perfect game for you and your friends. It’s not too difficult to learn and does not require a lot of time.
Each of these games is played with exactly 4 players. I LOVE these ones and highly recommend trying them out if you have a group of 4.
It’s every man for themselves in this game. Each player is trying to throw points at you, so you better be on your a-game for this one.
Hopefully you and your teammate have good chemistry in this one. You’ll be working together to win the most tricks but the catch is, there’s no table talk. You need to trust each other to pull your own weight!
If you’re from the Midwest, you may already know and love this game. Strategy will be your friend here.
I hope you’re able to play one of my favorite card games! Bookmark this post to reference when you’re looking for something to do. Lastly, I hope you’ve been staying comfortably you during these crazy days.
