When I was a little girl we had a house at the beach - I filled the many hours of school holidays with card games, largely taught to me by our neighbours. They were brothers - related to us through our dad - who played a grandfatherly role in our lives. K taught us to use chopsticks, not with Chinese food, but Smarties. D was the card sharp - he passed on to me the secrets of Sixteens Patience and Clock Patience and fulfilled my frequent requests for Mars Bars and Lemonade. My love of the chocolatey treat marked our friendship so greatly, that when I married, he brought me one on my wedding day.
What indoor games does your family play? What would you recommend? And do you prefer card sharp or card shark, because google says it can be both?!
