Top Five Family Card Games

Despite the fame of Xbox, Wii and other computer games, card games still never fail to bring excitement to the whole family. Unlike these high-tech computer games, card games allow everybody in the family to enjoy and take part in the game without the need to be “techy”. Once done with clearing the table and washing the plates, the family can get back on the table to play a card game. If you have not yet decided which game to play, check out the following top five list of family card games:

UNO

In the United States, you can seldom find a family who does not know anything about Uno. But, if ever you do not have this at home we are certain that you have played this game somewhere else.  Uno is so famous for its being such a simple game.  Players will just have to match its numbers and colors and the first one who is able to get rid of all the cards will be declared the winner.

SkipBo

This is another card game that can be played by children and adults. Just like any other card games, you should be the first one to play all the cards.  In this card game, you really have to be more focused on how you can put your cards to the center or else you will have more piles of it in front of you. You should be quick enough to know the sequence because this game entails more about playing the cards in a sequential order that is, from low cards to high cards.

Apples to Apples Junior

Apples to Apples Junior

This is the kind of card game that becomes even more enjoyable as more people will play. In this game, the judge will be the one to play the green card which has the single word on it. The other players will then take one card from their own hands put it face down on top of the table.  The judge will then lay out all the cards and chooses which among those cards is comparable to the green card.  There is also a junior version of this game where children can easily relate to the different words printed on the card.

Go Fish

This game works best for the younger children in the family.  This is where players will have to guess what kind of cards their opponents have. You may choose from a variety of Go Fish card decks.  The deck of cards varies from animals, seasons, letters, characters, etc. Parents will also be able to enjoy this game as they see their young children become ecstatic as they successfully guess the cards of their opponents.

Phase 10

Phase 10

This is the kind of card game where players compete to be the first one to be able to complete all the ten phases. Once you have completed all the requirements of each phase, you can then have the opportunity to proceed to the next phase. However, with 6 players in the game, this could last longer than expected. But, players may agree to have a break first and resume with the game afterwards.
