Poker is the most amazing game that I have ever played
Amazing game, but is quite a gamble in it.
Simply the best card game in the world.

2Rummy 500

This game is fun but mostly luck

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

5Go 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.
Who hasnt played go fish its so simple and easy
I just picked go fish because its the easiest and that is the only one I know

6Texas Hold 'Em
Everybody seems to know this one


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


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
I love playing Spoons at school! Best Game Ever! Goody! Lux xfg
Definitely the most exciting game ever played fo sho! Just the suspense alone with not only drive you crazy but in a very funny sort of way for sure as well!

8Crazy 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

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.

10Gin or Gin Rummy

The Contenders

I have very fond memories of game night and this one of our families favorites!

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

13Spite 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.
Love the game. Have played Skip-Bo and Spite and Malice.

spades is the best ever... strategy and luck combined

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.


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 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.
Probably the most clever card game of all time
More comments about Euchre

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.

1952 Pick Up
Screw ALL other card games, 52 pick up is the most fun of all.
52 pick up is an ok game

20Egyptian 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...

Best game of all

Good, but I like 21 better

This game is very complicated at first, but after a while I sweare it is idicting! I still do not understand why 45's is only number 23 in this, to me it definitely beats some of the card games before it. For me it only took two days to figure it out, but trust me it is a great card game, perfect for any occasion
similar to heats only more complicated and way more fun

I can't believe I'm the first to vote for this. pinochle is like spades on steroids.
My fun trick taking game I have played to day. Makes Spades look likea Boring game played in slow motion,

I love this game! You need heaps of people though so its kind of hard to play often but I like it. Top ten at least.

So much fun when your the only one who knows how to play

Really great game with a lot of possibilities. You can play it for fun or to develop some strategy skills
Russian card game. Objective is to get rid of your cards.

28Spider Solitaire


This is a great game that allows for great strategic partnership play!

One Of the funnest games ever

It's a card game invented in the 1600's. My father played it and taught my son who then taught me-we have been bonding through this challenging game ever since.

33Bull Crap


35Continental Rummy
Long game but needs skill and observation

I can't believe this game isn't on this list. Classic Canasta is an excellent, classic that took the nation by storm in the 50's and is an excellent strategic partnership game. My all time favorite.

37The Great Dalmuti
The best kept secret in card games, everyone should try it.

It is a great game and is very fun. It quite funny cause I hardly ever get a WHOT card but stil easily win.

Super fun Swedish card game

40Call Break
The best game there is. We bet the points. 4 players 13each. Spades cards rule them all.

It's the very best strategy card game. Second is Spades


43Pass the Trash

44Screw Your Neighbour



47Trex Complex

48Big Two
Uses some strategy but still is really fun. Easy to play.

You have 2 teams each partner sits diagonal across from each other each team has a sign to win but the key to the game is first team to get a four of kind wins but your teammate has to call watermelon before the other team sees your sign (each player gets 4 cards and the deck goes in the middle you lay 4 cards in the middle) if nobody needs the cards in the middle then you swipe them but after you swipe them each team should have a total of 8 cards in hand no more then 8 so that's 4 in hand after each go around

50Russian Rummy
