    Blackjack at a Tournament last weekend - and everytime I play I am reminded why I hate the game...lol

    Tournament bet (fake money basically) $30K hand - Dealer showing 5 against my 20. Has an ace underneath, pulls a 7 then a deuce then an ace then a 5 for 21... nothing like a 6 card 21 to lighten your chips..lol

    outside of casino games - Spades rocks as long as your partner doesnt suck icon_smile.gif

    Asshole/President/Scum hands down. I also enjoy poker from time to time, which is why I suspect learning strip poker from muscleminded would be a lot of fun ;)


    Oh yeah, the last time I played either was in high school some time. My college friends all preferred other games and I really got into Taboo and Celebrity.

    I forgot what it was called. But it's a variation of solitaire, but there's 4 players instead of 1. It's pretty fun actually. Last time I played it was in college.

    Texas Hold 'em. Been a few months. I need new chips after the idiot burglar took one of my cases thinking it might be something valuable.

    Uno. One of the joys of being a child therapist is that I play card games most days. Uno is complete luck, but I can make the game go longer if I need to. Just saying.

    Uno for sure. I bought it for $6 on xbox live and to prove it is complete luck, my record is 21-53. The background music and fast play is relaxing.

    I'm not into going to loud bars and screaming to have a conversation over the relentless music. I come from a poor, Southern, and very large extended family where the traditional entertainment is sitting around the table talking and playing games until the wee hours of the night.

    I have a group of friends I met in college who feel the same way, and we've been having regular game nights (4-5 times a month) for about seven years. I find that there's some psychological component that goes along with this tendency -- it consistently seems that people who don't like to sit and play table games end up being the kind of people I don't have enough in common with to become good friends. I think a lot of it has to do with the simplicity of stimulation. I see a lot of people who constantly need some flashbang external source of entertainment -- watching TV, going to a movie, going to a dance club. I think sitting around a table for 3-8 hours playing games and talking takes a good bit of empathy, intellect, focus, conversational skills, humility, and a sense of humor. You can quickly learn a lot about who someone really is on the inside by observing how they interact in a game situation.

    Our favorite card game, by far, is Hand and Foot. It's one of those games with rules that seem arbitrary when you first learn them, but after a few times there's something undeniably addictive about it. It helps that it can easily be adapted for individual play or team play since we sometimes have 3 people and sometimes as many as 9 playing at once. It's also the kind of game that doesn't require you to remember a lot of detail about who played what and when, so the group can really focus and finish in as little as an hour and a half OR take a conversational detour every so often and easily pick up the game where we left off.

    We also play a lot of Phase 10, Rage, and Mao.
    Whenever we want a break from card games, we'll go for the classic southern domino games like Chicken Foot, 42, and Mexican Train.

    egyptian rat screw. played it aboard the MV Explorer while studying abroad last semester on Semester at Sea. it was probably in some remote spot somewhere around the world. best part was that to prevent hovering, you had to slap your forehead before slapping the pile. as you can imagine, false slaps were hilarious!
