The Top Ten

Poker is the most amazing game that I have ever played
Amazing game, but is quite a gamble in it.
Great game night game for your friends
[Newest]I don't play, it but it is popular.

If you don't have any spoons you can play this game by putting you're hands in the middle 1st and the last person to do so is out

Each player picks a number and 4 of that number is in play no other cards
Deal out 4 cards to each player. Each player must then pass one card to there right at the same time if someone has 4 of any number they shout HANDS/SPOONS! Then puts there hands in the middle or grabs a spoon in the middle of the table. Who ever is last or does not have a spoon goes out the game and one set of numbers gets taken out of the game
Spoons is awesome it uses real spoons to play this fabulous game
I love playing Spoons at school! Best Game Ever! Goody! Lux xfg
[Newest]Fun and easy for everyone in the family!

3Egyptian Rat Screw
This game never gets old. Its also fun fast paced and can get violent. WHY IS THIS NUMBER 35
I think this belongs in the top 10; I have taught over 100 people this game...
I don't know how in the hell it got it's name, but it sure is fun!

I have very fond memories of game night and this one of our families favorites!
I have played this game once but it is super fun and contains a lot of strategy!
Hearts is the bomb! Play online.

5Crazy Eights
I hate poker it wasnt good. I play crazy 8s every day. And its fun to play I wish we can play it all day in my life. And the eights are wild and its fun to play the game. From now on we will play it every day. Its good. How exiting.
This game is awesome. It's a really fn game. I also hate poker laugh out loud. Rummy is too difficult and I don't know why bluff is not on this list. It's also a great game
Crazy eights is a simple fun card game It is boss

6Go Fish
I have got a deck of cards, the game I mostly play is go fish. Once you have played it, it gets addictive in a really good way! When I bring my deck of cards out the thing that's in my mind is go fish, go fish, go fish, go fish. So this's why I like it.
Go fish is a good game for all ages and it can save your time!
I just picked go fish because its the easiest and that is the only one I know
[Newest]I love go fish.

7Rummy 500
It is my Favorite Game I mean Really Spades and Hearts I'm stuck Inbetween Uk and Stupid.
Rummy is my favourite game I play it every day

8Gin or Gin Rummy
Easy, fun game that includes putting same suits together or getting three and four of a kind. CLASSIC!
Where can I play it

9Texas Hold 'Em
Everybody seems to know this one


Texas Hold'em is the In, not so much Poker anymore. Rummy is cool too.


9? I love this game

This game is fun but mostly luck
It's the best game ever its really and its really fun me and my friends love it

The Contenders

I could play this every day for the rest of my life.


Love this game. Play it with my friends in weekends at my cabin near stevens pass

I don't no this but I just want to vote, so sure many of you will this like...
So so fun this game should be first
Classic Top Trumps from UK best

The ultimate card game. It takes the human element, the logical analysis element and the perception reasoning of ones brain, to play well. No wonder computers even today, still can't play at levels near experts. It is the king of card games, with the prestige fit for Kings, not to mention a collaboration of complex rules, that make a steep learning curve on other games, seem like a flowery park hill. The game used to be big, now it has fallen by the wayside, as entertainment these days is all about very vulgar jokes, and fast cuts. Bridge is a thinking man's game in the age when thinking is no longer necessary. Yet, even still, for those of us who know it and play it on a humble night, it is truly timeless...
While poker is 10% cards and 90% human elements, bridge is just the opposite. This is the game where you have the chance to see truly deeply what card games are really about: strategy thinking and analysis, decisions and consequences, luck, and a great way of spending free time.
Needs some investment in time to learn the rudiments - but will repay you for a lifetime (like many of the best games). To me it is unfathomable why this is not top of the ranking, maybe as others have said because it takes time to grasp. you need a bit of time, a bit of patience and a willingness to learn, card sense is imperative, and a mathematical brain will help... But one of life's greatest joys for me.
[Newest]Love the game it's the best

Truly takes the skill of reading a peer's actions to the next level. This intense game of playing cards to further yourself and your teammate and predicting how many tricks you will win based not only on yourself, but also based on the mental connection between you and your partner is one of my favorites because it relies not on luck of the draw, but on pure strategy and knowledge of your partner. This game is the best bruh.
spades is the best ever... strategy and luck combined
Best game I've ever played. Partner games are best.
[Newest]Loved this game but don't know anyone who knows the game. Is it more well known in New England?

Fun in groups and at parties, so much fun! Never gets old, and is great if you have money to bet.
7 Card Blackjack is the bomb, fun for everyone and its not too complicated like other card games like poker or texas hold 'em
I love blackjack. A great test of skill and patience, and the more the merrier.


16Spite and Malice
I have played this game since I was a child and no one know what it is. It is fantastic! It is similar to skip-bo, but you do not have to buy separate cards.
How to play Spite & Malice
Love the game. Have played Skip-Bo and Spite and Malice.

I like the fireworks that appear on the screen when you win. :P
(Still haven't won yet... )


Solitaire is a hobby of mine. It's most of what I do with playing cards.


On a cold winters day I like to play solitaire

1852 Pick Up
This one should be on the top ten pranks, not card games.
I always seem to get to 51 then just lose interest
If you are an experienced champ, this game is the best of all games

I use to have friends that I played this with about 15-20 years ago & oh, how I miss it, just as I was getting pretty good, they moved & I haven't met anyone since who plays or likes it since!


I'm surprised games like Speed and BS are on here before Euchre XD.
This game is was better (except for bridge) than all those card games mention above. Poker is over rated and 500 Euchre owns all. People need to know how to play great games not luck games.
[Newest]Euchre is a lot of probability and strategy. So many possible outcomes. This is my favorite card game by far. I also love all the terminology.

It can improve your reaction time and judgement. Overall, it's fun to play with friends with other people cheering you on from the side.
A fun fast paced game
