Does anyone know some card games for 6-8 people, anything except poker? We have lots of board games but Grandma and Grandpa prefer to play cards, actually so do I.

Hand and Foot is a great card will need 2 decks of cards for each person though. Go to http://www.paga  my/handfoot.html for instructions!

How about UNO, SkipBo, Crazy Eight both can be played by 6-8 people. Go online and search for card games. There should be tons of things out there.

A greart game for up 8 or 10 is "Cancellation Hearts" Here are the rules:

Cancellation Hearts is for seven to ten players. This version uses two decks. All the cards are dealt out. There is no passing and the queen of spades may be laid on the first trick. The first trick also takes the cards left over from the first deal. The reason that the game is called "Cancellation Hearts" is that when two like cards are played they cancel each other out for the purpose of taking the trick. Thus, a trick where two Aces of the same suit are played, they will cancel each other out so that the next highest card takes the trick. This is a fun variation when you have a large number of people who want to play a game at the same table.

Even children quite young can play this.

We also play 'hand & foot' in our camping group and just love the game. We use one deck per person. It's usually the ladies against the men and, of course, the ladies always win. We did find that when the men won, they cheated.

Enjoy the game; it's lot of fun.

We play ''Tic'', but a bit different. We do NOT say Tic, when we lay down, hoping to fool someone into not laying down all that they can, and getting stuck with a lot of points. We also count any WILD card still in their hands after melding what they can,whether it be a joker or the number at the time, 50 points, instead of 15, with face cards counting 10 and all others at face value. Lots of fun and competition here, even for little kids.

Skip Bo is really fun! And Mexican Train Dominoes is really fun! I have a game group that meets twice a month and we often play these, along with Cribbage and Rummy-O.
