Why a deck of cards is the best way to stay busy

Lane Adkins

There are more than 40 plus games that you can play with a simple deck of cards whether you’re by yourself or with a group. 

With a deck of 52 cards, you can play a multitude of games and activities. There are all kinds of games that you can play with a deck of cards whether that’s by yourself or with other people. There are fast and slow games for anyone who is looking for something fun to do. You can play a slow game of Solitaire by yourself where you try to reveal all face down cards or a game of Gin with a family member trying to get the cards you need before your opponent does.

If slower games are not your style, then you can play more fast-paced games like Speed where you try to get rid of all your cards first, or you can play Spoons where you get four cards of the same kind and grab a spoon before your opponents do. If you are more of a risk taker, you can play a serious game of Poker, Cheat or Go Fish with your family. You can play with any number of players. 

If you prefer not to play games you can challenge yourself with card magic or sleight of hand. You can find all sorts of tricks online to impress your friends or family members, and even simple illusions to wow your audience. The sheer number of things you can do with a deck of cards is limited only by your imagination.
