Card Games Bring The Family Together

  Long summer days, rainy days, any day when the kids can easily get bored is a great time to pull out a deck of playing cards and enjoy some great family card games. One of the nicest things about card games is that there are so many different games for all age groups. Everyone in the family can get into the fun.

 

 

Card games range from kids games to classic games to custom games. You probably have a few tried and true games that your family loves to play. Once you get the hang of a card game it is simple to play a game at a moments notice. Card games only need a deck of cards and you can play all day or night long.

The classic card games are something that are simple to play and learn. Almost any classic game can be made to fit all ages. You can adjust the rules or simplify the game to make it something that suits everyone from small children to adults. This way everyone in the family can enjoy family game time.

Blackjack is a fun, classic game. It is quite easy to understand. Smaller children may need some help in adding up the numbers, but everyone should be able to enjoy this fast pace game of chance. The whole idea with blackjack is to get the cards to add up to 21 without going over. Each player is dealt two cards. One card is face down and one card is face up. All players see the face up cards and each player can look at their own face down card. Each player then gets the chance to get another card or stay with what they have, trying to reach 21. This is a great math game where kids will quickly pick up math.

Crazy eights is a card game that is well suited to young children. Most children quickly catch on and recognize the number 8 which is key to playing this game. The whole goal of the game is to get rid of all the cards in your hand. Each player starts with 7 cards. The rest of the deck is in a pile with the first card flipped over face up. Each player must discard a card on the pile matching their card to the face up card by either number or suit. If a player has no matching card they must draw from the face down pile until they get a match. Any 8 card can be whatever you want it to be.

Most card games make a wonderful way to teach math to your children. They can also improve communication skills and help eye hand coordination. They increase memory and really get kids thinking. There are not many things these days that challenge the brain like a card game.

There are many other card games ranging from poker to special games like Old Maid that require a special deck. You can always find a game that will work for your family. It is a great way to come together and enjoy being together as a family.

Family card games can be a great way to bond as a family. You can start a family game night once a week where you all get together and play cards. This is something that is perfect for all family members and something that can be carried on as your children get older, since card games can always be adjusted to suit the ages of the players.
