The Ten Best Card Games You've Never Heard Of (preliminary

If you just want a game to play and don't want to read through all of this... well, games in general fall into three types. There are the fun games, which are fun to play and a good time, not requiring much strategy or deep thought. There are the games for inveterate card-players, that involve lots of counting and knowing how suits typically split and which have significant cardplay components; call these "veteran games." Then there are the games which are simply unorthodox, that aren't frivolous games but which don't have a big advantage to veteran cardplayers; call these "abstract games." The last two categories are, of course, fun, but in a way that is perhaps more appealing to people who like playing cards than to the general population.

Of the games in this book, Creights and Spielen are definitely fun games. Barbu, 99, and Oh Hell are definitely veteran games. Psychological Jujitsu and Canadian Fish are definitely abstract games. Of the remaining three, Ninety-nine is somewhere between a fun game and an abstract game, Napoleon is somewhere between a fun game and a veteran game, and Liars' Poker is a mix of all three. So if you're just looking for one game, that's the all-purpose preview.
