Hi everyone!! Where can i find a list of good games using a regular deck of cards and perhaps some dice or just a few components? games in which a regular deck of cards is adapted to a different game like dueling nobles, or war... Thanks everyone

See the BGG family Traditional Card Games; you can sort the games by rank or rating, for example.

A modern odd sounding game with traditional cards (which I've not tried) is Army Ants. Once you have one example (like this) of what sort of game you want, you can often find geeklists which include that game and others "like it" in the sense you want. Look here for a few possible geeklists of interest:

BTW if you enjoy solitaire games, see Bowling Solitaire.

Here’s a good list that includes both traditional card games and a few games that normally come with their own deck but for which you can easily mod a standard 52 card deck.

Rage decks are popular for modding to play lots of games:

Indian Chief - 2-8p modern card game that feels a bit like a card game version of Yahtzee but with more interesting decisions.
