Anyone know of any games that are fun with just a regular deck of cards? Or even modified or multiple ones?
There's one game that someone taught me that's been pretty fun; I haven't played with over 4 people but lately I've figured that you'd divide by 4, rounding up, to find how many decks you'll need. It's called Fiji, but I haven't been able to find a record of it anywhere else.
Deal to each player 3 tableaus each having 2 cards, the bottom one is face down and the top one is face up. Then give them 3 cards in their hand. Before play starts they can switch cards with their hand and the face up cards on their tableaus, this is the only time in the game this can happen. Put the leftover cards into a draw pile.
The Goal: The point of this game is to get rid of every card in your hand and tableaus.
Ace is the high card. The players play cards into a central tableau. To start the pile the person with the lowest value card starting from 4 plays first (IIRC suit values from lowest to greatest are clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades) If they have less than three cards in their hand they must draw until they have 3 from the draw pile at the end of their turn. The next player must play a card that is higher than or equal to the number of the card in the middle. There are exceptions with the special cards.
10 - Can be played on any card, removes the tableau from the game and then that player starts a new one with any card; they may draw back to 3 before starting the tableau.
8 - Skips the next players turn.
7 - The next player must play a card with the value of 7 or lower.
3 - Can be played on any card, copies the card under it (if none it's a 3).Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
