Hi travel, I like to play texas hold' em best, because it gets a few of us together, and we have fun just chatting and reconnecting every once and a while. And it's about the only card came I'm any good at. lol
"Sevens" and since no one else I know has ever played it I'd like to say its a game my Dad created when I was a wee kid. Maybe I will write a hub about how to play it? It's quite a fun game. A part from "sevens" I sometimes like to play Cricket - one person can play it like Patience. PLUS Pontoon or 21 is fun, so is Rickety Kate - it has another name but I can't think of it right now.
We make up our own rules, and strategies to make games even more fun and exciting.
Two favorites are Uno and Scattergories.
If the face card in Uno is 9 you play all cards that add up to 9,(6+3=9). Or if the face card is 6 and let's say you have a 9 & a 3, you play both cards because 9-3=6.
Every word that you must come up with for a category in Scattergories, is replaced by some ridiculous made-up word, or combination of actual words that wouldn't really make sense for the category, but boy-oh-boy is it fun! We laugh and laugh to tears.
My favorite card game to play is Magic: The Gathering. Finding the best deck for a given meta and playing it as optimally as possible feeds my desire for creativity and competitiveness at the same time. Of more traditional non-CCG's I play NL Poker.
What games do you still play from your childhood?Do you still play any board games, card games, computer games or role-play games that you enjoyed playing as a child or teenager? Why do you think they still appeal...
