What are Card Games?

Card Games, in general, are any games that involve the use of playing cards as the primary device to which the game is played. These games can either be based on real-life card game rules and standard table card games like poker, hearts, UNO, and solitaire, or unique card games in a form of role-playing strategy games and adventure board games like Call to Adventure, card-collecting games, monster card battlers like Yu-Gi-Oh! and even popularized card duelers like Magic: The Gathering. 

Common Elements of a Card Game

The genre Card Games is a very broad video-gaming genre that covers all games that utilize cards or similar devices that may not be in the form or shape of a standard 'card'. On top of that, all of these games share many elements that further define the genre. Here are some of the most common elements you can find in a card game.

  • strategizing, pre-planning, and deck building are required on many games.
  • utilizes many elements found in similar board games (i.e. dice, chips, tiles, etc.)
  • has turn-based gameplay.
  • has a specific goal or objective in order to win the match (e.g. sorting the deck or removing all cards on the board)

Classic Table Card Games

Classic Card games use the standard 52-card deck (or 54 if you include the 2 Joker cards). They have their own traditional rules and tend to have many variations depending on the region and culture it is based on. Table Card Games exploit the fact that only one part of the cards is visible to the players. In fact, they are often characterized as games of 'chance' where guessing is involved. Our most-played Table Card Games include Uno Online based on the three-player version of Uno, Spider Solitaire, and Governor of Poker 2 which features a Western-styled version of Poker.
