The only way to win is to not play..if you will play, willingly, then be like James Bond.. a man who can walk away from his greatest triumph empty handed and empty pocketed..he shall live to triumph over and over... I do not know how to play any card games..
In that case, Eugene, CANASTA. That would be a good game to play with God. I would always have a partner to blame things on if they go wrong. Would you be my partner, Eugene?
It can be a cut-throat game, where all of one's morals leave the table for the duration of the game. You would still have time to chat with God and get his views on the world. HIS partner? Don't know. Maybe he could be in league with the Devil, just for old-time's sake.
It would be nice if I could sit on Devil's left hand, instead of his right. Then I could take the occasional sneak preview of the Hand he is holding, and (the occasional sneak view of God's Hand, too of course) then pass God a dud card so he can't make the move he was planning. Hey! This means I will be on the Right Hand of God. GOOD MOVE!
But, you know the way to make God smile? Just tell him your plans.
Canasta is a very nice game, Eugene, where you play with 2 standard packs of cards, with 4 jokers in play. Best played by 4 players in two partnerships. There is some skill and some luck to being successful. Fun to play, you can drop any niceties of personality and be ruthless just for the duration of the game and get back to usual friendships afterwards. People whom I introduce it to usually become much better at it than I am, which annoys the heck out of me!
"Players attempt to make melds of 7 cards of the same rank and "go out" by playing all cards in their hand. It is the only partnership member of the family of Rummy games to achieve the status of a classic." This is just from Wikipedia, to give you a better idea.
I reckon God and the Devil would make a superb partnership.....
