The Top TenXW

1Poker

Poker is the most amazing game that I have ever played

Amazing game, but is quite a gamble in it.

Poker, especially no limit hold'em, may be the greatest game ever. Chess and checkers for example, are games of perfect information. Everyone sees everything. Life is not like that. Poker often leaves one guessing if they made the right move, you never really know. That's how life is and poker teaches you skills that help you navigate life better. Outstanding!

I love porker I played it my hole life

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

Spent many hours, with colleagues, whilst waiting call outs.s

I have played this game once but it is super fun and contains a lot of strategy!

Good game to play

3Spoons

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

Fun and easy for everyone in the family!

Best game ever

4Go 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!

Great game but it is very addictive and you need a lot of time to play this game

I love go fish.

5Crazy Eights

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

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.

Crazy eights is a simple fun card game It is boss

Awesome game

This game never gets old. Its also fun fast paced and can get violent. WHY IS THIS NUMBER 35

I love this game and play it a LOT more than the other games on the list, it should be number 1. I have told so many people about this game and have taught just as many.

I think this belongs in the top 10; I have taught over 100 people this game...

Cool game to play

7Rummy 500

It is my Favorite Game I mean Really Spades and Hearts I'm stuck Inbetween Uk and Stupid.

Rummy 500, crazy eights, and 31 are my three favorite card games! But why is 31 so low on this list, it's better than 21!

Rummy is my favourite game I play it every day

Grew up playing with my Mom. Of course you know who always won.

8Texas Hold 'Em

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

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

Its pretty boring because the main goal of the game is to have 21 or less and the other person must have less or they bust

10Spades

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

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.

Best game I've ever played. Partner games are best.

Time to get down and play

The Contenders

11Mabinogi Duel
12Gin or Gin Rummy

It's a bit long and is difficult as you have to know what kind of pair your partner is making based on the cards they pick up but when you win, it's really rewarding.

My whole family love this game and my sister refuses to play anything else because she doesn't want any other game to be her favorite! - ThAtOnEIdIoT

Easy, fun game that includes putting same suits together or getting three and four of a kind. CLASSIC!

All right game

14Magic the Gathering

You are Playing Chess with Cards, and every 3 months you get new pieces to play with what more can you say!

Confusing and annoying if you lose but really fun if you win

Old plus new cards make powerful combo attacks.

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! - pmmom38

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.

Want to know how this game is played?

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

I play this game at lunch with my friends almost everyday and it never gets old

17Bridge

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...

Bridge is the best card game. It can be played at the highest level with no luck (contract form) and it can be played casually over a few drinks. Whether playing for money or pride, this game offers something for everyone. Bridge is the thinking players game, where all bits of information can be important, from what seems like a throw away bid, to what cards are dumped during a trick. There is such a thrill in making even a 1 no-trump contract by counting deep into each suit and making your 8 of clubs a winner!

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.

Learned at eleven. Played a lot in college. Not much til retirement, now 5 times a month, duplicate, and have master points. You can also play online, with people from all over the world. Free. People are turning to this game because it is intellectual exercise for the top of your head.

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

Great. Simple enough that anyone can play and yet complex enough that decisions still have impact.

I don't understand how blackjack isn't #1. it's the best!
