    Myst was incredible when it came out. We spent hours working through the puzzles. It was too cool to finally figure something out and get some machine to work or go to a new area. Also like Chess. And Parchisi.

    For a standard deck of cards I have no favorite, hearts, spades, poker, gin rummy. All good.

    I was once a Poker dealer and the true test of the game is reading the other players, something you can't do online or the slots.

    The most challenging game for me was Duplicate (tournament) Bridge. Socializing and brain testing.

    Euchre is my personal favorite. Also like Hearts and Rummy. There's Solitaire when nobody else is around and when we don't want to get serious there's always I Doubt It (aka Bullshit).

    I like Fizzbin - you know, that one Capt. Kirk made up on the spot.

    I've not played it myself, but know people that have. Here is the Wikipedia summary:

    Tonk, or tunk, is a matching card game, which combines features of knock rummy and conquian. Tonk is a relatively fast game that can be played during brief periods of time by varying numbers of players. It was first known to be played at Highland Park High School, Topeka, Kansas in the early 1970s

    Do you know of any sites or apps where you can play against robots for free?
    I had one app but it only gave me so many hands to play against the robots.
    I don't want people to have to suffer through my learning process!

    For teams I like Spades. I just learned Euchre recently, so that is not bad, but again, I hate teaming with someone cause I'm so new and it's like a guaranteed loss.....

    For one on one it's hard to beat Rummy 500 (or Cribbage)


    Non standard deck card games, I like UNO, but, also love SkipBo
