Card Games the Whole Family Will Love

Remember those nights when we’d all gather around the kitchen table, a deck of cards in hand, ready for an evening filled with laughter and friendly competition? There’s something timeless about card games. Here are some fun games you can teach your kids for an evening full of laughs. 


Snap is ideal for families with young children. It’s simple: all players simultaneously turn over a card, and when someone sees a match, they shout “Snap!” The first to call it wins the cards, and the player who eventually collects the entire deck wins. 


Players pass cards quickly around the table, trying to collect four of a kind. Once someone does, they grab a spoon from the center of the table. There’s always one fewer spoon than players, so someone will be left out, adding an element of competition that’s sure to get everyone laughing.


Rummy is a bit more complex and suited for older children and adults, but it’s a fantastic game for teaching strategic thinking and mathematical skills. The goal is to form sets or runs of cards and lay them down for points. With each player trying to build their hand, Rummy becomes a deeply engaging game that can keep a family entertained for hours.
