Best Card GamesWhat is your favorite card game?
(applies to games using the standard 52-card deck of cards A-K in four suits-does not include UNO, for example)
The Top Ten
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!
Great game night game for your friends22 Comments
;) only card game I ever play
I have very fond memories of game night and this one of our families favorites!
Definitely needs to be higher
I love go fish. My wife and I use it as foreplay
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.
Great game but it is very addictive and you need a lot of time to play this game
Go fish is a good game for all ages and it can save your time!10 Comments
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
Just learned to play it today. Addicting!3 Comments
I could play this every day for the rest of my life. - anonymous
This is arguably he beat card game ever! Days of fun, I never get bored of it, it's too awesome. If it was a career I would do it.
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 old6 Comments
It's like war for intellectuals
Best card game ever!
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.13 Comments
This game is fun but mostly luck
This is poker
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 bust7 Comments
The most exciting and fast-paced
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.
I love crazy eights, my mom taught when I was young.7 Comments
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
Want to know how this game is played?
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.9 Comments
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.
Loved this game but don't know anyone who knows the game. Is it more well known in New England?
Best game I've ever played. Partner games are best.6 Comments
It is a cool game
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
Fast paced and awesome
Spoons is awesome it uses real spoons to play this fabulous game17 Comments
Everybody seems to know this one - RdrTech
Texas Hold'em is the In, not so much Poker anymore. Rummy is cool too. - Raptork
Texas Hold 'Em is a really fun game to play with family and friends, and once you know how to play, you can get really good really fast.
Fun to play all day with friends4 Comments
Oh Hell Yeah!
A great game for a large group of family and friends to play.
Play it whenever the family gets together.
Fun name is good too!
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.
I don't even play this with cards
Its one of my favoruites
Good luck winning
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 first7 Comments
This is the best game. - S235
Love all the experience
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!
It should be number 1
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.6 Comments
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
Where can I play it
Easy, fun game that includes putting same suits together or getting three and four of a kind. CLASSIC!4 Comments
I like the fireworks that appear on the screen when you win. :P
(Still haven't won yet... ) - Oreanta
Solitaire is a hobby of mine. It's most of what I do with playing cards. - PositronWildhawk
I've became addicted to solitaire recently...6 Comments
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 love blackjack. A great test of skill and patience, and the more the merrier. - PositronWildhawk5 Comments
Never gets old. THE BEST! - mood333
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.
I have played this for hours straight on many occasions, it never gets old
How do you play speed
This game requires more than just luck.5 Comments
Cards against humanity is my all time favorite. But I play apples to apples when young ones are around.
This game is really challenging and has to be first place
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.
How to play Spite & Malice
This game is the epitome of strategy and screwing people over. It's so fun!
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
This one should be on the top ten pranks, not card games.
This is also my 19nd favorite game! How ironic!5 Comments
Loved this game, better than eucher
Best game ever
Cutthroat Pinochle is my favorite! It's so addicting. When you're on a lucky streak and you can't decide whether to gamble or not, it's such a RUSH! Incredibly fun game and pretty easy to learn too! You'll forget when you don't play for a while, but when you start again, it comes right back. - theOpinionatedOne
I can't believe I'm the first to vote for this. pinochle is like spades on steroids.9 Comments
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.
"Just learned how to play it! What a wonderful game! And can be played with up to 4
Fun game that sailors play and involves math
Great game love to play2 Comments
Thirteen card brag OR Crash as we called it when I was younger. Just looking up how to play it again?
Greatest partner card game. Fun with variety of strategy and luck.
Great game would love to play
Great all around game
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.
Hand and foot makes it even more interesting, but you need to have a flexible attention span when you start a game cause it can last a few hours. - theOpinionatedOne
More people should play Canasta. A great game from my youth played across Europe and South America.
Great game with a lot of possibilities, in my opinion is more interesting than any game in top 10 here
Penalty for not saying thank you. - ListerBlister
Just noticed that I posted a misspelling of the game. Oh well. This game is the best. Played it for hours with some friends and we were cracking up. Best played with new players - elijaHayes
This game is amazing when you are playing with someone new to the game
So fun to play and just watch people get so confused from penalties3 Comments
similar to heats only more complicated and way more fun
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
Love this! The only card games I like better are rummy 500 and crazy eights, it's close though.
Good, but I like 21 better
Best card game ever along with bs and Egyptian rat screw
Too bad it is not played on english speaking area.
Check brisca out too.
We call this "President" what makes it so fun is the politics because the winner (President) takes from the loser (Big Butt) to keep winning! A tennis camp throwback.
One Of the funnest games ever
Specially in south Asia this game is immensely popular. I have been playing this game since childhood and still remained as my favourite card game
The best game there is. We bet the points. 4 players 13each. Spades cards rule them all.
Love playing it. 4 card golf is the best. - ThAtOnEIdIoT
