Card Games

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

I don’t suppose I would have ever developed an interest in card tricks if I had not been a keen card player first. Playing card games is a great way to pass time with family or friends. It can be as light-hearted or as serious as you want it to be and there seems to be a card game for every taste and every occasion.

What I find intruiging is just how many different types of card game there are … here are just a few:

  • Matching games
  • Trick taking games (such as Skat)
  • Shedding games
  • Accumulating games
  • Fishing games
  • Solitaire games
  • Drinking card games
  • Gambling card games such as poker
