card games for rainy caming days?

Just panicking about the weather! Games suitable for 8 / 9 yearolds and parents please, with simple rules!

We know snap(!), pelmanism(!) and rummy!

Oh yes, we have some of them!

Any games with normal playing cards?

The all time best family card game. second to none

Deal out all cards to players. Whoever starts has to place a card (or pile) in the middle of the table face down, and say what they have put down ie "2 Fours". The next person then has to place cards on top of that pile still face down, which are either equal in value or one up or one down ie "1 Three". It continues round the players. However the aim of the game is to be the first to get rid of all their cards. And it's not called cheat for nothing. You may be placing any card down ie be calling "1 three" but actual place 1 Queen. At any point in the game you may call out "Cheat". The player who calls then checks that person hand they have just placed. If it is indeed a cheat the "cheater" has to pick up all the pile. If the player was telling the truth, the caller picks up the pile. Play continues from the last person to place cards. The only time you cannot cheat is the first hand of the pile.
Got it?!

We also play call something called Slapdown but I think we made that game up and only uses 2 players at a time and needs a sturdy table
