games to play with a pack of playing cards?
I have posted in the camping section, but thought non-campers might have some ideas too!

For a family with 8/9 year olds, thanks!

Blackjack / 21

With real 2ps and 1ps of course.

Ooooh PBSR, how do you play blackjack?

Deffo 21s with real pennies. Love that from my childhood!

Also, what about Newmarket? That's another family favourite that we all still play, right from my 4 year old up to my 80 year old grandad. And of course you have got to play for keeps!

If you google card games, definitions of all these are under a site (I just looked up the name of Newmarket - couldn't remember!)

Lol we used to play 21s on our camping holidays too. Fond memories grin

Gin Rummy is another good one. Will write rules out later if you've not found them.
