Card Games

There are card games played with a regular deck of cards and card games played with custom cards. The only card game I play with regular cards is a game a call Trix, which I'm sure has a more official name. It's like euchre with 2 exceptions (you don't have 'teams' and you don't try to win every hand, just the amount of hands you predicted you could win). At least that's what I'm told, I've never played euchre! As for custom card games, I like the following:

1. Dutch Blitz - Unless faster people play
2. Mille-Bornes - Most frustrating game
3. Phase 10 - Requires little concentration

Any suggestions

Mau! Im not sure I can explain the rules well, but I know many a BBC'er that can! This was always a super fun game to play in College!

Euchre is the only card game.

Dutch Blitz is great, and I also enjoy Spades. Does Spoons count as a card game?

I like Phase 10 and Spoons, but my absolute favorite card game is Nertz, which is kind of like Dutch Blitz, but is played with regular decks of cards (each person gets their own deck). Another fun custom card game is Swap, which requires very little strategy so that anyone can win, which makes it great to play with kids.

I think we should play Mille-Bournes so I can win.
