My favorite card game is cribbage. I've been playing since I was very little. It helped me with my math skills as I was growing up and now is a favorite activity when we have a family get together. I'm still waiting for my 29 hand though....(by the way, there is a lady from my hometown that has four 29 hands - ONE FROM EVERY SINGLE SUIT. Rare as well as astonishing!! I'm sure that has to be a Guinness record.
