Definitive list of card games with ONLY a standard deck!
- Chris Pieters(PieMan)Canada
I know this is a board game site, but there are enough card games on here too. I also know that there have been lists made of card games, but all of them seem to involve custom decks. Nothing wrong with that, but what can people play if they only have a 'standard' deck of 52 (13 cards x 4 suits), plus potentially 2 jokers?Recommend
Note: I've played with a dutch deck and a french deck before too. Italian deck I saw was different; might've had more or less cards or suits - I only remember the 'cups' suit.
This list is meant for games needing the cards ONLY (and maybe a scorepad); no extras! Therefore, cribbage & rummoli & sequence & Canyon (for example) are excluded.
Not all of the games are on BGG, nor are there pictures associated with all - it is, after all, just a deck of cards! Therefore, I've improvised, and used names and/or pictures which are not really for the game indicated in the comments.
Please add any I've missed!
May 29/04 - Good point made about cribbage really being just a card game with scorepad. I guess I was just originally shooting for a complete list of free, public-domain card games; maybe I wasn't clear enough, but it's still a solid list.
