The Most Fun Card Games

List Criteria: Games you can play with a standard deck of playing cards or cards made specifically for a game

List of card games that are fun for groups of friends and family. Whether you're playing poker professionally or simply enjoying a casual game of Go Fish with the family, the most fun card games provide hours of entertainment for all ages. There are numerous fun card games, each with their own rules and gameplay such as two-player card games, drinking games, fun card games for 3 and multi-player card games allowing plenty of choices for everyone. Perhaps the best part is that many card games can be played nearly anywhere with only a standard deck of playing cards.

Though there is a bit of debate as to the origin, many historians believe that playing cards were invented in China during the 9th century. The first card game followed soon after, as did hundreds of other card games.
