Card games have been played in bars, saloons, taverns and casinos for many years. There are as many different types of card games as there are players. Some are played with two players, some with up to five players and some are even played by one person against the deck.One of the most popular card games in the world is Black Jack. What is Black Jack? This is a game where the player is initially given two cards. Based on the total of his initial two cards, he can ask the dealer for another card in an attempt to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. He can continue to ask for cards as long as he does not go over. Should this happen, the dealer wins automatically. A total of 21 with two cards is considered a Black Jack.Another popular card game is Crazy Eights. What is Crazy Eights? This game consists of players attempting to get rid of as many cards as possible. Each player is dealt eight cards and then the remainder of the deck is set in the middle of all the players. The top card is then turned over. The players then take turns in ridding cards from their hand that match the suit or rank of the top card. If a player does not have a card that he can get rid of, he must draw cards from the discarded stockpile until an appropriate card is found.Uno, another popular game, does not use the standard 52 card deck. The cards in Uno are specifically designed for the game. What is Uno? This game works on the same principal as Crazy Eights, but cards are discarded based on matching color or number. As in Crazy Eights, the player must continue to draw from the discard pile until he draws a matching card. If this happens too often, the player can end up a very large number of cards, thus hindering his chances at winning. Before a player lays down his last card, he must announce “Uno!”Card games are great entertainment for friends and family and are a great way to spend time together. It’s the perfect activity for the rainy day when the kids can’t be outside, and you’ve had enough TV. They require interaction between players and cause each player to use their mind to come up with winning strategies and the best methods of play. When playing any of these card games its best to have 3 or more people to have the most amount of fun. If you are playing for the first time you can always play a couple practice rounds till you are comfortable.
