Need suggestions for a good card game to play

Don't mind complicated, and I like Clobyosh/Bela/Clob, Pinochle, Euchre, Cassino, and similar games to those, but I don't much care for gin/rummy cames, poker games or bridge.

Anybody have something particularly fun to try for 2-4 players?

Re: Need suggestions for a good card game to play

My brotha showed me a cool card game, but I can't for the life of me remember... I'll ask him when he arises from his sleep. I know it's a middle eastern card game though...

You totally need to try Cards Against Humanity

Re: Need suggestions for a good card game to play

Why do you like Euchre but not Bridge?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I've never met anyone who knows how to play casino! I'm the master of that game, it's by far and away my favorite card game. They're always the urban favorite 'spades' and the cousin to that game 'hearts'.

The only card game I couldn't grasp and get into was pinochle- it's my dads favorite and people who play it seem to lreally love it. If you like solitaire, then there's a very basic game called kings corners that's fun to play with 2-4 people. Another classic would be canasta.

Uno is fun. but since Ipad, Iphone or whatever gadgets my friends has, we never play any real card games anymore.
