Pick a card game, any card game; after all, there are dozens to choose from! What a wonderful activity for a rainy day, or for those times when you want a little challenge. Plus, cards are perfect anywhere, from the living room floor to a train, plane, or automobile. Some, like Donkey Buttons and My Star Twinkles, will delight the very young - and stimulate their intellect, too. There are over 10 versions of War, including Revenge and Pisha Pasha, and others with a mathematic twist (Sevens, Knuckles, Finders Keepers). Old favourites appear, including Go Fish, Authors, and Old Maid. Play variations on Casino, Rummy (from Oklahoma Gin to Back Alley Bridge), and Whist, as well as Hearts. To make the instructions even clearer, some of the games even have drawings to help guide you.
