The top ten card games

1. Poker

Poker involves betting on the value of the cards in your hands (the value is determined according to a 'hand rankings' hierarchy) by putting money in a central pot. The player with the highest value cards, or the remaining player (after all others have folded) wins.

2. Go Fish

Go Fish involves a player asking whether other players have a card of a particular rank. Whoever has it has to give all such cards. Those who don't tell him to 'go fish'. He has to pick a card from a pile, and the player who didn't have the card gets to request others for cards. The person whose hand only has sets wins.

3. Cribbage

Traditionally a 2-player game, but commonly played with more, cribbage involves playing and getting cards in groups in order to score points. A 'cribbage board' is used for score-keeping.

4. Bridge

A game of skill and chance, bridge is played by 4 players in teams of 2. The partners sit opposite of each other. A 'bidding' is done, which ends with a declaration by teams to take a certain number of tricks with/without a particular trump. Play is carried out, after which a hand is scored.

5. Rummy

Rummy involves trying to dispose all the cards in your hand, which should be in particular sequences of 3 or more. During play, you can either pick a card from the 'stock' pile or 'discard' pile, and put a card down.

6. Texas Hold 'em

Arguably the most popular poker game in casinos (and considered as a good strategic analysis game), Texas hold 'em involves the player using any combo of the 5 cards placed face-up on the table (community cards) and his/her own 2 cards (hole cards) in order to make a poker hand.

7. War

In War, each of the 2 players are given 26 cards, which are put face-down. Both players take the top-most card from their set and compare them. Whoever has the highest ranking card wins both. If they're equal, one each is put face - down, and another 2 cards are compared. The winner gets all cards. The person with all cards wins.

8. Solitaire

This game is started by dealing cards onto a table in a particular arrangement, after which you have to re-order the deck according to suit and rank by transferring cards from one set to another under restrictions.

9. Blackjack

This game is started by giving 7 cards each to 2 players . The top card is taken from the 'pile' and is put face-up. If the player has a card of the same rank/suit, he has to put it down, or take a card from the discard pile. The first person to discard his cards wins.

10. Slapjack

The game starts off by dealing the cards among the players, face - down. The top card on their pile is put in the centre. When a jack comes, the first person to reach the pile wins.
