Top 10 Best Card Games

What is your favorite card game using one or more of the standard 52-card decks of cards; A-K in four suits (does not include UNO, for example)?
The Top Ten
1 Poker

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!

While playing poker you are guessing people's mind. You also develop an affiity towards numbers and combinations.

You play POKER Right, You play PEOPLE Right!

I was torn between voting for this one or for spoons, in the end I just had to go with spoons, as it is a great game but poker is just as good.

Poker all the way. I actually learned to play poker from the video game Far Cry 3, believe it or not, and I've been hooked ever since, haha

2 Hearts

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!

This is a game of skill. Can I play it on my computer?

Hearts is the bomb! Play online.

3 Go Fish

I love go fish, I play with my family sometimes over the summer.

Go fish is a good game for all ages and it can save your time!

I love go fish. My wife and I use it as foreplay

It is so stupid

4 Spoons

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

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!

Probably the most exciting and entertaining card game there is. I've only ever had an amazing timw when playing this game.

Fun and easy for everyone in the family!

5 Egyptian Rat Screw

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...

So fun! It's way better than poker, and spoons! Should be number one!

A game that involves speed, skill, and luck. One of my favorites.

6 Crazy 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

I love crazy eights, my mom taught when I was young.

I've heard of Crush's Crazy 8s!

7 Solitaire

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

I've became addicted to solitaire recently...

Love the game period!

I love the game

8 B.S.

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.

Really cool and definitely fun p.s if you playing with small children (7-12) or younger defintley change the name to bull poo

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

9 Blackjack

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

Fun in groups and at parties, so much fun! Never gets old, and is great if you have money to bet.

I love blackjack. A great test of skill and patience, and the more the merrier.

My favorite card game and first taught by my step dad.

10 Rummy 500

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!

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

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

Just learned to play it today. Addicting!

The Contenders
11 Texas Hold 'Em

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.

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

Best card game ever.+

9? I love this game

12 Spades

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.

Love Spades, it's the best...

13 Euchre

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.

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!

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.

The only reason Euchre is not at the top of this list (just below Bridge but more relaxing! ) is because not enough people play it.

14 War

War sucks! It is 100% luck with no strategy involved. I declare war with whoever put this on this list!

It's a good game for littler kids, but not really a fun game with a lot of elements.

I don't no this but I just want to vote, so sure many of you will this like...

Good luck winning

15 Gin 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!

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

Learn to play 5 years ago. Love it.

16 Apples to Apples

Cards against humanity is my all time favorite. But I play apples to apples when young ones are around.

17 Bridge

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!

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.

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.

18 Oh Hell

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!

19 Wizard

This incredibly fun card game deserves to be much higher! It's really fun to play, the only problem is that you have to buy a special deck

20 Mafia

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.

21 Sheepshead

This is the best game.

22 Garbage
23 Star Realms

Love all the experience

24 Speed

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.

This game requires more than just luck.

I have played this for hours straight on many occasions, it never gets old

Enraging, but very fun..
