I recently got some cool vegas and bicycle card sets, not to sure what to play with them. These cards a great to look at but I want to make them work!! Can anyone recommend some cool modern games I can play with traditional cards?? Any recommendations would be great, from solitaire, 2 player and more....

Écarté is a really cool two player game.

Skat is Germany's most popular card game. It is for exactly 3 players and not exactly easy, but very deep; after almost 30 years of playing, I'm still only a mediocre player.

Likely you willl judge that this fails "modern", and yet it may be illuminating.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

I am not sure about the exact contents of your set, but if you have
Quote:

In more detail, the deck contains 104 number cards (1-13 x8) and five joker cards.

you can play Linko!


(2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A makes for 13 cards)

The 5 jokers might be a problem.
