Cheat is brilliant Blossoming. We laugh so much when playing it.

Another vote here for Canasta. It’s a brilliant game for socialising with friends.

Oooh thankyou so much - I'm googling all of these for the rules.

Canasta. Wonderfully addictive, once you get the hang of it.

Whot, played with ordinary cards. We call it pea-knuckle but when I googled that , the game wasn’t what we play.

We are about to go on holiday to Ibiza with 2 of our adult daughters. Please can you tell me your favourite card games? We think it might be fun to play cards in the bar in the evenings so looking for a variety of not too complicated games to play.
