One day last week was National Play a Card Game Day. I was going to write this post then, but my new granddaughter was born and that post just didn't happen. But, since playing games is a big deal in our family, and because we had already come up with a bunch of our favorites to share with you, I thought I would go ahead and do that post today for Friday Faves #46! We came up with a bunch of card games that we really enjoy. Some are old favorites and speak for themselves in the collage above. Others are unconventional, but still use cards. Most of our choices have their own specialty card decks. So, here we go!
Last year, Tyler and Jessica received Dutch Blitz as a Christmas gift and I have loved it ever since. It is fast paced and so much fun! Because I am a grandmother, I am not as fast at it and Madalynn and Jessica always beat me. But, I am getting better! I love it anyway. I guess I am a glutton for punishment. I just noticed that there is an expansion pack for it that I will have to check out!
Skip-Bo is a classic and one of Lindsey's favorites. Dutch Blitz is similar to Skip-Bo. In both games the object is to be the first to get rid of your pile of 10 cards. I think you would call Skip-Bo just a little more civilized because you take turns!
There you have it! Besides Hearts, Rummy, Uno and Spot IT, those are some great games that we would recommend to game playing families like we are.
If you have missed our other posts about games that we love, I am linking to them below! Have a fun weekend, and let us know of any games that you love that we have missed talking about or trying. We love to try new games!
