I'M looking for a fast 30-60min cutthroat card for me and my kids 2-4 players.
Is it possible to find a game with no text on the cards, or maybe some very easy to understand text for no English speaking kids.

I have check out cutthroat caves but there seems to be a lot of text on the cards.

Coloretto or Citadels would work. I would suggest Guillotine if you can get it in a language that would work.

Lunch Money (no text, but you have to read the rules), Munchkin (easy text), Fairy Tale (not so cutthroat--but a fine game with no text on the cards).

The King Commands

The only English text is in rules and player aid cards - but you could create your own player aids if desired, and I'm assuming you will teach the game.

Downside: not good if anyone is color blind, since that person wouldn't be able to tell the difference between many cards.

I'd second Coloretto and also add No Thanks.

Poker War might work. 2 players. Use a standard Poker deck. One player starts with the red cards, the other black. Each side shuffles the other player's deck and hands it back. You may then cut your own deck if you wish. Each player draws one card from the top of their deck. Then one player bids as many cards as he wants off the top of his deck, face down, as a bet. The other player can fold, call, or raise. High card wins, Ace being highest. If the cards are the same rank, the cards stay in the pot, and another round starts. Cards in the pot should remain face down. Winner gets all the cards in the pot. You may not examine your winnings. You may not examine the rank of cards you bet. When you run out of cards, either at the start of a new round or during a betting session, shuffle your winnings and continue. Win by winning all the cards or by resignation.

Intrigue.
No alphabetic text on any components, exceptionally cutthroat. Plays 3-5.

What he said. Coloretto is absolutely one of the meanest games to ever come in a bright, delicious package.

The Fluxx line of games is good for this. There is some text, but this is easy to remember in the future.

I checket out Coloretto, and i think its to much a "kids" game.
They are more into "scary" stuff like zombies and pirates.
Guillotine is a little fun game, but could not get it anywhere around my country.

The fluxx games just seems silly.
I still need to check out Citadels.

Maybe they'd like parodies. Check out Munchkin Zombies or Munchkin Booty. There is text, but it's not so bad. Lot's of backstabbing too.
