Whacky Eight

You have probably played this game as a kid. The aim of this game is to play all the cards that you have in your hand. You start with dealing 8 cards for each player and place them face down. Put the remaining cards in the center. The 8 is a wild card so it can be used for any value, 2 forces the next player to pick two cards and 4 makes the next person miss a turn. The method is the same as UNO and every player has to try to finish all the cards in their hands.

I Doubt It

This card game is easy to play with children. In this game, you have 3 to 13 players. The aim is to be the first one to get rid of all the cards. The game starts with you bluffing what cards you have when it is your turn. If the next player catches your bluff then you will have to pick the entire pack of cards that are on the table. If not, then the next player gets a card from you.

The first person to run out of the cards is the winner.
