    Gin

    The card game, not the drink.

    Does anyone play? We started playing it earlier this year because we wanted a good two player card game and I really enjoy it.

    I'm honestly not sure if I've experienced either one.

        I used to play gin all the time as a kid (this is what kids growing up in the 90s who didn't have cable did I guess, play cards) but I haven't played it in years. Not sure I remember how now

        But it was one of my favorite card games as a kid

          Never played. Hearts and Pitch would be my faves. Poker is pretty awesome also.

                  really! i was half going to ask if anyone had heard of euchre but thought nah no point
                  i don't play it but fisherman loves it. he discovered he can play it online so i've watched quite a lot but i still haven't quite made sense of the rules.

                  J Ruth it definitely seems to be regional. I'm not sure what the regions are, but it is huge in some places and unheard of in others.

                  I've only played spades a couple times, but basically it's like a cousin to that game if you've ever played it. It's not that hard to learn, but it would probably be easier if you played it instead of just watching.

                Has anyone played queens? Not sure if it is known by other names or not. Usually a 4 player game.

                  i think i might have played queens a few times as a kid. but i don't remember anything about it other than the name sounds familiar.

                          You guys ever tried a gin-gin mule? It's a 10/10.

                          Gin, Ginger Beer, Lime, Simple Syrup and mint.

                          no, but i've done a gin-gin-gin mule. you feed a mule 3 shots of gin and try to ride it through an obstacle course.
