    Mine's freecell.
    This is just pure curiosity on my part.
    I've personally probably played around 5000 games of it so far. I generally play freecell while i'm listening to music.

    Poker
    Switch

    A few others i forget the names of but play any with friends.

    Poker is great with monopoly money when playing with students cause we treat it as real as we never have any money anyway. Gotta invest in some real casino chips sometime

    Texas holdem is a good one. Just about every other week my friends and I go to a 20 person tournament with a $150 pot. I never do win though...who said I had any luck? :grr:

    If you think texas hold'em is mostly luck then thats your problem. Its all in how your play your opponents. The cards are there for boosters, Its your ability to read and decieve that makes a great hold'em player.

    I like Texas Hold'em and Hearts.

    I never said it was mostly luck, but many card games, including holdem, involve a great amount of it; don't you think?. I don't have a poker face either...I guess I should have mentioned that too... :hehe: It's pretty funny when you watch those professional poker matches; I've seen a guy on there wear a hooded jacket, and I heard he pulls the hood over his face while he manages his cards, LOL. Smart guy, maybe I should try that.

    There is the ability to receive a good hand.

    This is called luck. Hands down, straight up luck (given you know what you are doing with your hand).

    Then there is the ability to win chips.

    Maybe this is where you're coming from. Call it what you want: bluffing, deceiving...whatever. I'm not talking specifically about texas holdem either, but both qualitites contribute.

    If you think winning at card games is all about luck you should see my grandad! I've watched him play rummy and also played it with him, and he memorises EVERY card that gets put down and pattern matches in his head to figure out what the other player has, then he tries to keep cards he thinks they will need. It's scary because he pretty much always wins.

    I used to love playing rummy or 7s up, but you need other people to play with... and of course a pack of cards! I play solitaire on the pc though whenever I'm on the phone for some reason, only on the phone :confused:

    DAAA! I never said it was ALL luck. I was just explaining how luck/probability/statistics/whatever has a lot to do with it.

    I love playing cards, Poker (pick a variation), blackjack and cribbage, although I'm still trying to get to grips with crib as I only started playing it 2 weeks ago.

    And poker is not all down to luck :D

    Try here Bindi, a bit cheaper. I've bought a lot of things from them and they are very good.
