Best Two-Player Card Games

My Favorite Card Games for Two People

So you and your buddy/relative/significant other are sitting around with nothing to do. It's raining cats and dogs, and there's a deck of cards on the table. What game are you going to play?

There are dozens if not hundreds of really fun card games, but which games are the best of the best?

Even though I've been playing cards regularly for more than twenty years, I don't believe I'm qualified to answer that question. I can, however, tell you which two-player card games I like best and maybe convince you to give one a try. Below I've listed my favorite two-player card games:

  1. Santase/66
  2. Cribbage
  3. Gin Rummy
  4. Hola

Each game comes with a short description and a link to some more in depth rules. Enjoy!

1. Santase or 66

Santase is a Bulgarian card game for two players. Ever heard of it? Maybe you know it as Sixty-Six. Or perhaps Schnapsen. All three games are similar and share the goal of trying to score 66 points before your opponent does.

I play Santase more than any other two-person card game. For me, it's the perfect card game for relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon. There's strategy involved, but not too much. There's memory involved, but not too much. And, of course, winning also depends on the luck of the draw.

Santase uses only 24 cards (9, 10, J, Q, K, A) from the standard deck.

To score big, you need to "marry" Kings and Queens of the same suit.

If you want to give this game a try, here are the rules to 66. As I said, the rules to 66 and Santase are essentially the same.

Cribbage. Or "Crib" for Short

Crib can be played with more than two people, but I prefer it one on one, heads-up. Of course, in addition to a deck of cards you'll need a Cribbage board -- a $10 investment.

I made my first Cribbage board in junior high school and still use it to this day. It's ugly, and the holes don't really line up, but it's served its purpose admirably over the years.

I think it's the board that makes the game unique and gives it that special flavor. Sure, the rules are clever, especially the one that has each player giving up cards from their hand to form a "crib," but it's the board that makes Cribbage, Cribbage.

Cribbage rules are here.

Gin Rummy

For me, Gin is all about action. There are a lot of things going on, and I totally lose myself in this game when I play. Forget about conversation Grandma, I'm playing to win!

Gin uses a standard deck of 52 cards. Start by dealing ten cards each and flipping over the top card. Like other forms of Rummy, you'll focus on building runs and sets (3s and 4s of a kind).

Here are the rules to Gin.

And an Honorable Mention to Hola

No, this is not a Spanish game. In fact, it is Ukrainian so go ahead and pronounce the "h".

My family plays this game a lot. It's a casual, easy game that is best played by four people playing as teams. But it can also be played by just two people.

2s and 7s are wild. Aces and 10s score points.

Here are the rules to Hola.

More Fun-But-Obscure Card Games

I'm very interested in learning more two-player card games, especially games that are played in remote regions of the world but still use the standard deck of 52 cards. If you have any suggestions, I hope you will post them below.

My favorite card game of all time is Forty-Fives. Learning to play it was practically required of all of us who grew up in the Merrimac Valley. While I prefer to play it with two teams of two people each, it can be played by as few as two people or as many as six. Both team play or cutthroat play is possible when playing with three to six people, which can make for some interesting variations in the way one plays. It can be a bit a confusing to learn all the rules at first, but it is definitley worth the effort. Rules of play can easily be found on Wikipedia or by searching the web.

My partner and I enjoy playing Strip Jack Naked. Split the deck in half (or deal evenly between all the players...for every 3 players shuffle in an extra deck). Each player plays one card at a time until a J, Q, K or Ace are played. They are worth 1, 2, 3 and 4 cards respectively, in that the other player has to play that number of cards in a row. If they play their own J, Q, K or Ace, that blocks the original player and the count starts again and passes to the next player. Final aim is to get the whole deck.

Dave is a genius. Listen to him about 45s. Best game ever. Can bet, create tournaments, and even play by yourself on fortyfives.com. It is difficult to get the hang of, but so worth it I can't even express it in text.

CardPlayuh 6 years ago

Hey, I have to agree with the guy who said "Cheat"

The game also goes by the name "Bullshit!" or "I doubt it"...

Point of the game is to try and bluff cards onto a stack and empty your hand, which is just the deck split between players evenly, before anyone else... You start with the Ace of Spades... Then the next player, clockwise, looks through their cards, and put's down any twos they have. Any suit... But, if they have none, or if the only have one, they can put down other cards!

I.E. I have no twos, so I put down a 3 and a six and say "Two-Twos..."

The person across from me has three-twos, so he knows you didn't actually put down two twos! So, he yells out "Bullshit!" and you have to show the cards you put down - since they were not twos, you have to take the stack of cards... Then the next player starts at 3.

TO keep it fair, say you HAD put down two-2's... The guy yells bullshit and, no, HE'S bullshit, so HE takes the cards...

Don't understand? Google it... It's worth it.

Needs 3 players or more, however...

Alan 6 years ago

Anyone know the card game, Casino? I played with my dad and now play with son. The game has a point system: most cards - 3 pts; most spades - 1 pt; ten of diamonds - 2 pts; each ace - 1 pt and deuce of spades - 1 pt, for a total of 11 pts in a game. We usually play a set of games with first to reach 25 pts wins.

It is rare to find anyone who has ever heard of or played Casino. Would like it play it online with son. If anyone knows of a source for interactive online adaptation of Casino. Please write here.

Thanks.

joe 6 years ago

I like hearts, spades and rook though rook is kinda tougher when only two people.


mike g 6 years ago

the game I love is called AH SHUCKS. Its kinda like spades and hearts together. First you deal 7 cards to each and flip or pick any card left in the deck. That suit is the trump(suit that beats all). Then start bid from right and dealler has to bid off even(so if 4 book are bid for and 3 are left then dealler must bid 2 or 4) some one should always be set. Then like spades what suit is put down has to be thrown if don't have suit anything can be in its place trump takes other suits. After hand ends if you made you number of bid you get that number + 10( call 5 make it get 15) go over get how many made(call 2 make 4 get 4). Don't make it minus what you called. Next hand deal 6, after that 5 and so on. One is an indian tail feather( card goes on forehead everyone see card but you don't see yours). Then back up to 7. Play until 100. I loved spades in college, we found this game and liked it better cause more rounds between classes. Now we get together and hang out and still play

My mom and I play a game we have called Aggravation but it is with 2 decks. You each put out 4 cards face up in 2 rows, then deal 12 cards to yourself, down, 13th card face up. Highest card starts, build down from face up cards, red/black, king to Ace. Aces go in the middle. Strategy is to get rid of your 13, and eventually all your cards. Exceptions is you can play on opponent's "up" piles, suit on suit. Does anyone know what game this is? It's a great game, but aggravating!

One of the best two-player card games ever created is Blind 31. There is a special variation for two players that makes the game even more exciting. This is a great game based on the classic card game Thirty-One (Scat, Stop-the-bus, Bloody Knuckles, etc). Try it out...everyone that plays it loves it.

contract bridge is a wonderful game. it is a world in itself. it requires a lot of application of intelligence. you have to think very hard to win maximum number of tricks. it is more appropriate to play it in tournament situation as the element of luck is absent there.

Earl's Game is one my FIL taught us and played often. Strategy, some memory and finishes in about 40 minutes with two players. Add up to six and the dynamics change. My personal best point pickup was 1050 points.

Game may be played with 2 to 6 players

Remove the 2’s and Joker’s from 2 decks of playing cards, to begin the game.

Number cards worth 5 points, face cards 10 points and the ace and wild card 100 points.

Object of the game is to use all cards dealt and get high points. The first player to 2000 points wins.

The dealer deals the first card up to the player on his left. That is the total number of cards that player receives. (3 will get two more cards, 4, three more, etc. The Jack a total of 11, Q a total of 12 the K a total of 13 the Ace gets a total of 15 cards) Continue the deal in the same way for each player. The dealer deals his card up and that card becomes a wild card for that hand. It remains on the table and is not picked up by the dealer. The stack is placed in the center and one card exposed.

The player on the left draws a card from the big stack or if the very first player that round may draw the exposed card. The first player on the dealer’s left must create runs of at least three cards to lay down a set of cards or may lay down a pair if they have a wild card. Place the wild card horizontal and lay the pair vertical. After playing all possible cards the player discards one card.

Some details: When the discard pile has a card in it that a player wants they can pick up the entire discard pile back to that card if they have a pair to match back to the card. For example the discard pile begins with an A, 10 and a then a Q and has 12 more cards displayed past the Q. If the player on their turn has two Q’s they can pick up the entire stack back to the Q’s. They must then play the Q’s and should play all the cards in that pick up that are three or more or a pair with a wild card. If they do not lay down all cards they then discard a card and the play resumes with the next player. If the player cannot pick up from the discard pile they may draw one card from the stack.

If a player has not laid down at least one set or a set with a wild card they loose their turn. A player cannot go down if a set is already in play. However, after a player goes down they may play any cards in their hand that another player has down. Those cards go horizontal in a pile on the right of the player. Say ON YOU as they are placed. If a player discards a card that is in down and another player is down they can say MINE and take that card off the discard stack and play it. This may happen when a player is not down and must discard or accidentally discarded as they did not notice it was down. A player cannot pick up a wild card by saying MINE. They may get wild cards that are embedded in that stack by picking up a stack from the discards

At the end of the round you deduct any points left in your hand from the cards that are down and count the remaining points that are down. You may have a negative score. The game ends when the first player reaches 2000 points. Thanks to Earl for an intriguing game.


esmeralda 4 years ago

wowowowowowowowowowowow vanda you area good witter. as is see you are well informed about the card games. iam surprised about this ability. you now in my country during the summer we play different card games . in albanian their names are a little strange. but the games are beautiful i mean the games we play. you are a professional. why you don't do a thing . for example to open a shop. a shop with card games for the persons and who wins. guess what can win a price the price you want. do this game or open the shop but like a race. i mean that every day will come in your shop different people in your shop and you will say. people we can do a race. and who wins takes a price. by doing this you are going to be well- known in america.

We play 3 13 alot - not the same as 13. You deal 3 cards for the 1st round & 3's are wild, 4 cards second round and 4's are wild, etc. until you get to 13 cards and K's are wild. The game plays like rummy making runs or matches of 3 or more - lowest score wins. Need to use 2 decks for 3 or more players. You can google the official rules.

today i will explain my favourite game called thieves. it is played with four or more persons. put the four cards in the game or better in the ground. if the four cards in the ground are similar you should not change them. should be distributed to every player four cards. and if any of the players has the same card as he or she than this must not be changed. we may receive card from the areas whre the have decided, like i said before in different ways. neither example nor either two with two or even ten with ten pig an pig and the other figures that remain. or even if they have taken six plus one seven. we do thus meeting papers. we should not cover the letter that we received from the earth because every one should see. this for the reason that someone may have a similar letter with you and takes them to another player. so evry one should see if others may have similar letters so he can steal them. that is why the game is called thieves

montieur is a fun fast 2 player card game.

the aim of the game is to get rid of all your cards. half the cards are dealt to each player. each player then takes four cards and put them face up in a row next to their decks( with a gap in the middle ). then each player takes one card and players it in the middle. both players then flip over the cards at the same time. you can then put cards which are either higher or lower from your four cards( aces can go on kings and vice versa). you can also put down more cards in your row as long as the maximum is 4. Jokers can go on anything. When both cards are the same, you can shout monteiur. The other person then takes all the cards in the 2 piles. When neither player can put a card on any pile, you put the piles aside and both players put down two new cards. The piles put to side are still given to player who has to take the piles because the other players shouted monteiur.

I personally like to play a first game where the cards are shuffled. I then very sloppily shuffle for the second game. a lot of the cards are in order so the game becomes very fast.

the game is interesting because you have to pay attention to your cards as well as the opponents and the 2 middle piles

Very simple game for 2 players but very difficult to play well.

Separate the pack into suits and each player gets a full suit to hold and play with. One of the remaining suits (say, hearts) is shuffled thoroughly and placed face down - the top card is turned up.

Each card is worth its face value Ace=1.....King = 13. The aim of the game is to win the most points.

Imagine that the upturned card is a 7. Each player then 'bets' a card from their suit and lays it face down. Both cards are then turned face up and the highest card wins the 7. The 3 cards are piled near the winner with the 7 showing. The next heart is then turned over and betting begins again. And so on.

If both players bet the same value card for the 7 (say a 6) the cards stay in the middle and the next heart is upturned and added to the 7.

The game is full of bluff/strategy as each player aims to win the value card with the minimum bet - eg, if I thought you were going to bet a 6 to win the 7 I might play an Ace or two. But then you might think I'd do that and play a 3 to win. But then I should really play a 4 ...etc.

As there are 91 pts available, the first person to reach 46 wins.

И еще один немаловажный нюанс: эти кремы позволяют тратить меньше времени на растушевку тона, но при этом вы можете быть уверены в том, что никто не догадается о его наличии на вашем лице. Создатели косметики с удовольствием экспериментируют с различными добавками, рассеивающими свет. Фотохромные пигменты, шелковые протеины, нейлоновые жемчужинки или микропризмы - наличие подобных ингредиентов в рецептуре крема свидетельствует в его пользу.
