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 game....you will need 2 decks of cards for each person though. Go to www.pagat.com/
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.
Phase 10 is a fun rummy-type card game easy to learn. You can pick up a pack for under $10 at any discount store
We've often played a game called "Tic". Any number of people can play - you just add another deck of cards as needed. Jokers are kept in the deck. You start off with everyone getting 3 cards. The dealer turns over the top card. The person to the left of the dealer can either pick up that card or draw a different one; then they need to discard one card (always keeping 3 cards in their hand).
Try Canasta and Pinochle - I think you will love those.
God bless you!
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.
Phase 10, Uno, Flinch, "Spoons" (using any deck of cards) aer all fun.
Yatzee- I hope I spelled that right
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.
Christmas suprise crash the parents! This game sounds great can't wait to play! Thanks and Happy Holidays!
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.
