How often do you play cards?

Playing cards is a wonderful way to pass the time. In the winter on a cold, rainy night playing cards can be a very cozy activity. And in the summer, sitting outside at the picnic table or around the campfire… is there a more ideal card-playing setting?

How often do you play cards? All the time? Sometimes? Hardly ever? Never? After you vote, please tell us what card game(s) you most often play in the comments below. We always like learning about new games.

Speaking of new games… We recently learned how to play Quiddler. It’s sort of like Scrabble but in card form. It’s easy to learn and tons of fun.

My husband and I try to play Skipbo at least 3-4 days a week over lunch. Have a very friendly rivalry and have kept a running score for 8 years!!

Wife and I play cribbage all the time. Also play Hand and Foot Canasta, 31, Flip Flop, and dominoes when camping with our RV club. When not camping, wife and I play cribbage and once or twice week we get together with friends and play Hand and Foot.

I play cards on my laptop, not with other people.

With other people, hardly at all. On my phone, often and the game is solitaire. My wife and I have been married 33+ years and have never played cards. My college teammates played rook or spades, but I was an observer, never player.

We hardly ever play cards because we seldom meet others who are interested.

I play games online, favorite is WWF that I can play with a friend of 30 yrs who lives 3000 miles away. In the “old” days when we lived closer we would play Scrabble on a physical board. Others online are quick word type games. Keeps the mind sharp….I hope. I also like physical games, board & cards, but alas husband doesn’t.

Wife and I play a game of Gin twice a day while having breakfast and dinner. The math and strategy involved stimulates our brains to keep them active. At our age, this is very important.

Grew up playing cards all the time, especially Cribbage. After my Mom became incapable my card playing stopped and I don’t play at all anymore.

I’ll venture a guess that all the games on phones have greatly curtailed many people’s interest in real cards.

About once a year, I will play Solitaire on my computer. Real paper cards, not since the early seventies.

Canasta every Sunday evening (nearly every Sunday evening since we were married in 1987), cribbage a couple of times a week, and then the board games – Scrabble, Monopoly, etc. Solitaire on the computer or phone maybe once a week. Definitely play cribbage nightly while camping and still play canasta weekly while camping – even made an extension for our table so we could play!

We play a card based game called “Fast Track” at many rallies. Great fun! I make the boards that we use. Cards, Marbles and luck.
Otherwise, Freecell on the computer, sometimes Solitare.

Awesome, I also play cribbage, learned it watching it while my Dad & Brother-in-law played! That was when I was 10, actually improved my math skills in school! It’s hard to find folks that play crib, currently I play on line with real people, but it’s not as much fun as it is with a live person. Also teaching my 11 year old Granddaughter to play & she is learning very fast. But takes a lot of games to learn the ins & outs of it.

We haven’t played any card games for years but we play Mexican train dominos all the time when we are rving and sometimes at home also. We have kept a score book both on our rv and at home for many years.
