Playing cards have been a part of many of our lives since childhood. You might have played with your parents or with school friends. Card games for many of us are familiar, even nostalgic. Those that are not raised on such games can be surprised later in life when a pack of cards is introduced to the table and everyone else just seems to know how to shuffle without dropping the cards and the rules to a dozen or more games. Whether you're looking for new games, reminders of some classics, or you're just curious what all the fuss is about, Social card games will serve as a guide to 42 of the best card games to play with friends and family. You will also find score keeping tips, descriptions and illustrations of shuffling techniques, compendium matches to play a mix of games together and small league formats to get more players involved or mix up partnerships.

About the Author

Ken Hutton was born and raised in the beautiful chalk downlands of Dorset in the south of England by his northern parents. He has spent time living and studying in Manchester and Berlin, which despite the benefits of city life convinced him that Dorset is where he feels most at home. Social card games is his first book.

As a child he spent a lot of time exploring the countryside with his friends, but on rainy days or during breaks at school they would often pass the time playing card games. He still plays cards with some of the same old friends, as well as with family, young and old, and with passing acquaintances, at home and abroad. In Social card games he has distilled the hundreds of games he has experienced to forty-two of the best for social play. You can find out more at
