One of the most simple card games, Teen-Do-Paanch and Saat-Aath, is your go-to game if you are a newbie to the world of playing cards. However, if you are playing Saat-Aath, only two players can play the game; whereas, if you are playing Teen-Do-Panch, only three players can play with a pack of cards.
2. Bluff / 420
The game has many names to it; while some call it ‘bluff’, others refer it to as ‘420’. Another easy game, one has to con their opponents by playing wrong cards and fake-call the move. It gets interesting with the increased number of packs of cards. The good thing is any number of players can play the game, given the number of cards made available.
The game is a bit tactical. One has to carefully play the game and make pairs as per the different circumstances that come to the fore in the game. Two players can play the game, which is played in two versions, i.e. 40 points, and 100 points.
Making a sequence of four cards of the same suit is compulsory. It can be more or less too; however, a minimum of four is a must! The game is fun for those people who love to play strategy games. A popular online version of Rummy game has gone viral, too, in recent times. However, playing it in person and with the cards, is a different feel altogether!
This game is a real gem in the card-playing world. Not many people are aware of it. As many as six players can play with a pack of cards. It is an excellent game where the luck and the mind play equal effect in its final result. A round of the game takes near 45-60 minutes to complete. However, you can stop it mid-way too.
