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]Awesomeness! ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜บโ™ ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฃ๏ธโ™ฆ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›#best game ever

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 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!

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
So simple that a cave man can play

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

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

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

10Texas 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

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

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.


1552 Pick Up
If you are an experienced champ, this game is the best of all games
This one should be on the top ten pranks, not card games.
I always seem to get to 51 then just lose interest

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]Msn gaming zone, spades

17Spite 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.

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

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


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

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

Good, but I like 21 better

25Spider Solitaire

Great all around game

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.
Great game love to play

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.

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.
This the best game ever

One Of the funnest games ever
I love this game!


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

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

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.
Great game with a lot of possibilities, in my opinion is more interesting than any game in top 10 here
More people should play Canasta. A great game from my youth played across Europe and South America.


36Cards Against Humanity
So horrible, but SO fun. Even better when you print custom cards that relate to you and your friends.


I love this game, what the hell is this doing in #64

37Continental Rummy
Long game but needs skill and observation

Super fun Swedish card game

39Screw Your Neighbour


41The Great Dalmuti
The best kept secret in card games, everyone should try it.

42Trex Complex

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

44Call 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


47Pass the Trash

48Clock Solitaire
My favorite version of solitaire! It's very unknown. Everyone should learn it. It's very easy to play and unlike regular solitaire there is no strategy. It's all luck.

Ignore the name for a second. This is the BEST CARD GAME EVER! An analogy: Idiot- a juggernaut. Poker, etc. - a germ. This is a kindly comparison to Poker players everywhere... its no contest. GO IDIOT!
At first, I did feel like an idiot. Once I understood I played the game about 2 hours long. I find it somewhat better than crazy eights, so this at least deserves top 10 rankings

50Hawaiian Speed
Two people slit the deck then lay down four cards and play just like speed but a little more hard

Cheet your win do not

Same as 28 if no of players are 6 instead of 4 as in 28

53Apples to Apples



This is a deck sorting game, you put the cards in order while playing a game

Deal all cards
Person with the 7 of hearts goes first, the next person can lay either a 7 or a number either side of 7 of hearts so long as itโ€™s the same suit you can only build off of the last card unless you have a 7 and can start a new suit pile

Example if 7H is laid you can lay 6H 8H or another 7 of another suit
If you can go you have to go, the way to win this game is by blocking a line that you know the other player has the cards for, if you have 10h jh qh kh you can lay one at a time while the other player cannot go.

A can go either above K or under 2 but either way its not a good card to have

56Big 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

58Russian Rummy


Only need 3 players to play, it is fun!

I play this game all the time with my friends and family
I remember playing this in second grade. Why is this 58?!?
Amazingly fun fast-paced game for 2 players



64Indian Poker
This can get way out of hand, but its hilarious!

Very popular game in Bengal

66Dragon Ball Z
This game has the best anime show in cards. I am trying to say is play this game

67Royal Five

Fun to trade great game to
Pokemon Pokemon Pokemon cards

69Bull Crap

Yu hi oh is the best
