Card playing has been around for centuries! People have been playing cards almost since the beginning of recorded history. It’s a great way to pass some time and talk to your friends and family members while not just sitting there like a bump on a log.

Now there are those who take their card playing very seriously. They develop strategies and styles to play. There are even those that count cards and mark cards so they can shave the odds in their favor (but I would not suggest this in a casino). I really haven’t played a lot of poker in my life but when I have, it gets a little ruthless so you might want to pick friendlier games.

There are many, many kids versions of card games as well and if you need a little quiet time, suggest the kids play cards. Though they can still make a lot of noise, generally speaking they don’t as they are concentrating on what they are doing with their cards.

And while artists like to show dogs playing cards I have never actually seen that. I have seen dogs eat cards, but that’s an entirely different blog. Cards are a great way to keep your mind active while letting your body relax.
