Here is a collection of lively card games for kids, paired with an over-sized, custom-designed set of playing cards. From such favorites as Baby Snap, Go Fish, Concentration, and Blackjack to the less well-known Chase the Ace, Racing Demon, Smudge, and Frogs in the Pond, here are over 35 games for two to six players, plus Solitaire for a rainy day. For ages 4-9. 

A complete introduction for kids and a refresher for adults, here's the everything-you-need-to-know guide to 35 great card games for the family. With:

  • Objectives, rules, score-keeping, favorite variations
  • How to shuffle, cut, and deal
  • Strategy, and even the art of bluffing
  • Glossary of card terms

moonstone-magic More than 1 year ago
This replaced an exact set of cards I got at a rummage. I did not know it had a book to go with it. It has lots of card games we used to play as kids, about 40 years ago, that I had forgotten about and will try again. The deck is larger than a regular one and has fun looking kings, queens, and jacks. You will not be disappointed. Even for adults. We got it for a VERY large cribbage board. Just perfect.
