The about 50 hand combinations change every year.
    Dh plays pinochle every Monday. We also play euchre and hi low jack once or a twice a month. It keeps your mind sharp and keeps social contacts.

    In our our retirement community there are are always multiple games going on in rec centers as well as people always willing to play in a home game.
    I also play mah-jongg 1-2 times per week and also can play 4 free games on line daily. www.myjongg.net

    When I was little, it was War and Go fish. As I got a little older, it was Uno. When I was just about a teenager, I got to start playing with my grandmother and the old lady's from the neighborhood. Pitch, Spite and Malice, Michigan Rummy, Canasta, Shanghi. I miss those days, because everyone in the family, seems to have different likes and hates when it comes to card games. There normally is a fight before they decide what to play, so I long ago, just decided to walk away when they start discussing it.

    My (young adult) grandsons got a card game called "Exploding Kittens" for Christmas. We played all afternoon. It seemed very complicated but I won several times.
