Top 10 Board Games
- Card Games
- International / Indian Business
- Chinese Checker
- Snake & Ladders
- Connect Four
Different types of card games can be played with 2 or more players. We would need 2 or 3 Deck of Cards.
- Black Queen
- Bluff / Cheat
Declare is a card game that can be played by 3 or more players. Depending on the number of players we can use 1 or 2 decks of cards. Shuffle the cards and distribute 8 cards to each player. Each card will have their respective points. For example – Ace is one point, 2 of the heart is 2 points, Jack is 11 points, Queen is 12 points, King is 13 points, similarly other cards will have the points.
The objective of the game is to have the minimum number of points and declare it when you feel you have the minimum points of cards. In other words, after declaring if you have the minimum points then you win the game and can note the same points in the negative (ex: -6 if you declared at 6) & others can note down their respective points. If in case, the points at what you have declared another player has the lesser points than yours than you will get double the points that you have declared. Lastly whoever will have the lesser points in total that player will win the game.
Black Queen is a card game that can be played by 3 or more players. Depending on the number of players we can use 1 or 2 decks of cards. Shuffle the cards and distribute equal cards to each player (If you have extra cards can remove 2 or 3 number cards of Spade or Heart). Only Heart 13 Cards will have 1 point each & Club Queen will have 12 points for 1 deck of card. The total points will be 25 points.
The objective of the game is to have the minimum number of points and also to avoid any card of Heart & Club Queen. In the case of 2 decks of cards, the total points will be 50. Similarly, the game can go on. If playing with 1 deck then whoever reaches to 50 points first will lose the game, in the case of 2 decks whoever reaches 100 points (Note: You can also play further if you wish to & then do the total). In other words, the player who will not get any or lesser points will win the game.
Bluff / Cheat
Bluff/Cheat is a card game that can be played by multiple players. The more the number of players more the fun you get. Depending on the number of players we can use 1 (4 or fewer players) or 2 ( 5 or more players) deck of cards. Shuffle the cards and distribute equal cards to each player. The aim is to get rid of all the cards. The player who sits next to the dealer/distributor starts the game.
Players can play the cards faced down by telling lie/truth (up-to them) and target to finish their deck. Whoever plays the cards if he/she has told the truth & next player picks it up then the next player need to add those cards in his deck or if it is a lie then the person who has played those cards takes backs the cards & the next players plays his cards. If no player picks up the card then others also have to play the same number what the first player has played (it can be any card like an ace, one, two, jack). Whoever finishes all the cards first wins the game.
UNO is a card game that can be played by 2 or more players. Shuffle the cards and distribute 7 cards, face down, to each player & stack the remaining cards, face down, to form a Draw pile.
