This is among the favorite games of most of my friend back in high school. Whether playing for fun or for money there are people who are really good at playing cards. Do you know how to play cards? Do you enjoy playing cards? Are there ways to become a good card player? Picture credit: jetpackbrontosaurus.com

@mandala100 I forget the English name (if ever there is). It is like pairing the cards. Each player gets 11 or 12 cards and the one who shuffles will get 12 or 13 cards. Then the rest of the cards are left in the middle. Each player will put down same numbers (all 4s, all Kings, etc) or cards of the same kind (Hearts: King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, etc or Ace, 1,2,3,4,5). Every turn you have to put down cards but if there is none, you can get from the cards left in the middle. If there are no more cards in the middle, you will get from the person on your right. The first to put down their cards is the winner and the last one who have a card left is the loser.

Yes, I love playing the Cards. We invariably play Cards when when we have good family gathering! In fact all of my family members and sister's family members are fond of the playing the cards. Though we play for fun, a small money involved in the game makes more interesting! Which games you play ? Thanks!

I like to play cards. I like to play a game called "Olsen" We play for money, but we use really small amounts of money like 10 cents. When you lose you have to a give a coin to the 'bank' and the winner receives all of the coins. If four people are playing the winner gets about $1. We don't get rich, but it is fun

I like it and I am quite good. It depends on my mood if I win or not. But I always get the best cards, I am lucky. But it is prohibited to play them in public areas (many people play for money).
