Card Games on Camping Trips

The other day I read a news story about the Grey Nomads of Australia and how they love hitting the road and catching up with each other over Happy Hour.

The story made me smile as it reminded me of spending time with my parents in their Winnebago and being invited to join in those same happy hours.

For me, I loved sitting back with a glass of wine and playing cards as everyone happily chatted away.

Looking back over some photos I love this one taken in a park in Kalgoorlie, mid card game and mid glass of wine. One I took to remember one of those oh so simple but happy moments on the road.Card Games on Camping Trips

There are so many games to play, and it’s always fun to learn a new one. My personal favourites are Bush Rummy and the frustrating but fun game of Frustration.

There are definitely those people who love to play more than others. I’m definitely in the “can we play another game?” camp. As well as the fun of the actual game I find it’s a great way to catch up with people as you chat as you play.

And if you want to get a child’s face out of a screen for a while, a pack of Uno cards may be just the trick. Although you may find they get a bit like me when they’re hooked and won’t want to stop.

But how about you? What are some of your favourite card games when you get together with friends or family?
