The quote above is one frequently spoken by my grandmother, a nationally ranked Bridge player (according to her, anyway). I'll save Bridge for another, multi-part post, but for now wanted to share a few of my favorite card games, some with our own family rules: I've always found the regional variation of the rules to be interesting. So if you're staying in due to the cold or spending time with family, a game of cards is always a good way to pass the day and catch up. Our new Gold and Black cards take it to a new level.   

Not into games? Test your creative side, and patience, with an authentic house of cards.  How many levels will you attempt?
