What Are Some Of The Most Popular Card Games?
One of the best card games you can play with the entire family and make sure all children will enjoy is Go Fish! If you already have a fun deck of cards and the ideal playingmat and want to create an even more unique look, get more creative and personalize your playing mat. You can purchase one at your local discount retailer or online and bring it into your home. In fact, if you are looking for a fun activity to do with the kids this summer, consider getting the Go Fish!
Most card games are played between two players, but in Go Fish, there is one player that stands on the edge of the playing mat and uses a rope to cast off cards. Players all stand around the edge of the playing mat and cast their cards toward the person on the left and hope that the card they cast hits the person on the right. The first player to twenty cards wins! This game is also known as Twenty-One, or sometimes Twenty-TWO! It is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon and a great activity for children to learn to count.
Go Fish is played over a deck of 52 cards, or one for each player. The first player chooses a name, such as Joe or Bob, and chooses a color; for example, they could choose green, red or blue. Then, each player receives five cards face down, and they are dealt four groups of cards face down – one for each player. Go Fish is much like other card games, where players are dealt a hand of cards face down. When players are dealt their cards, they must carefully try to figure out what the remaining cards are and then place the cards in any order on their card face to form the best possible card – i.e., “jack” becomes “a-k” or “q”.
