As a cheap source of family
entertainment and fun,
free card games are very hard to beat.
There are so many different games
for players of all ages,
you're sure to find
something for everyone!
If you would like your family to spend more quality time together, a regular family games night is one way to achieve this goal. The whole family can enjoy playing games while they also build their relationships and love for each other.
A cool winter's day or a lazy summer day are other excuses for getting out a deck of cards and trying a new card game or two. Vacations and camping, a family reunion or a quiet party with a few friends can also benefit from a few free card games.
Although many commercial games are fairly expensive, a pack of cards fills the hole nicely. There are so many free card games that you could play a different game every week for a year, with nothing more than a standard deck of cards.
You will find card game rules for a variety of games below. There are games for one player, along with games for two or more players, including some games that are suitable for large groups. There are kids card games for younger players and rules for advanced card games suited to adults and older children to play together, although younger children may still be able to join in with a little supervision or modification of the rules.
The instructions for each free card game includes a suitable age range, number of players and the aim of the game, along with an estimate of the time for one game. Of course, you can play each game more than once, or you could choose a different game as part of your games night.
The card game rules also include variations to the game. Some of them are minor variations that make the game a little more interesting, while others are major variations and have separate rules.
Why not try some of your old favourites from your childhood? There are several new card games and others that may not be familiar to you (yet). Give them a go and you may discover some new favourite card games.
Click on the highlighted game of your choice below and you will be taken to a page with full card game instructions on how to play each free card game.
If you are confused about any card game terms, see the Glossary. The Glossary will open in a new window so you don't need to leave the instructions for your game.
Kids Card Games are suitable for younger children since they don't need a lot of strategy or thinking skills.
Advanced Card Games are great for adults and older children who can think and plan. Some may also be suitable for younger children with help and supervision.
These free Card Games for One Player are excellent for a quiet time alone.
We hope you enjoy playing these free card games with your family and friends. On this website we have hundreds of other free games for you and your family to play together throughout the whole year. Why don't you stay awhile and have a look around?
