Got game?

Now that my kids are a little older, we've started to carry on the game-playing tradition started by my grandparents. It's the best cheap entertainment around!!! Here are links to the rules for some of our favorite card games.
  • Scum
  • Bid (FYI: we use the simultaneous bidding method and we score 1 point per trick and 10 points for getting your bid right.)
  • Spoons (We played this last night and even Summer caught on. Although, we had to pass the cards a little slower than we might have otherwise.
  • I Doubt It
(I don't know what it says about us that all of these games are also known by a less savory names.) :)

We also have had a ton of fun playing Ticket to Ride, Apples to Apples, Pit, Catch Phrase, and Loaded Questions.

What are your favorite games?

We love Scum and Apples to Apples! My favorite card game as kid was Speed but, it is for 2 players only. Of course UNO was a favorite as well. I will have to try a few of these other games...now if only my kids could keep a deck of cards together for a complete set!

We love games too. My kids are still into simple board games (Sorry, Chutes and Ladders etc). But we love to play Carcassone, Settlers of Catan and Set as well as the ones already mentioned.
Other face card games we play are Canasta, Spit, Nertz, Golf and Hearts.

We used to play "I Doubt It" at Girls' camp every summer, but we called it "Boy Scouts"!!!
