It is quite interesting to play cards, isn't it? There are different kinds of games being played around the world, I gather. Some play for the money but some play for the sheer fun of it. Honestly, I do play with some money involved on certain occasions, just to make things a little interesting, but gambling isn't really my cup of tea.
It's great even if you're alone, since you can play a game of Solitaire, which actually explains why it's named that way. Hehe. But my favorite game is a game I learned in the Philippines that's called Tong-Its. Please don't ask why it's named that way because I honestly don't know!
Anyway, it's a relatively fast game and it's best played with 3 players. While drinking beer and vodka cruisers, I tried to teach my brother-in-law how to play the game, I reckon I did alright in explaining it and together with my sister, we played one round. I beat them, of course, being a good player that I am. Ha! Oh, I'm sure they'd trash me given the opportunity to play again.
It's a time well spent indoors if everyone's too tired to go out or has run out of places to go to. It'll be filled with spirits, conversations, laughter and music. What more can you ask for?
