We used to play Mille Borne as kids. I just found a complete set of cards with a plastic draw/discard tray for a buck at a thrift store! SCORE! Now to teach my son and daughter the next time out camping. We were just turned on to Skip Bo - great game with the kids.
our family enjoys NERTZ, but we've made our own, with each member using a regular deck of cards. we each have a different design on the back so we can separate them after each round. we have played this with up to 10 people at once...boy, does that get crazy!
I know NERTZ has a specific set of rules, but I think we've changed them up a bit.
Neither of these are for young kids - and definitely not your everyday card games!
We all love Killer Bunnies (reading the cards is as much fun as the game) - this is a game I came across at the USC Bookstore and ordered from Amazon. We keep the main set with add on decks at home and keep the remix edition in the trailer.
Flux is also a favorite - rules keep changing, so you gotta pay attention.
2nd on the spoons. Don't know why you would need a kit for spoons. Its just a deck of cards and one less spoon than players. When I was young my four brothers and I would play this all the time while camping. Very rarely finished a game, a fight would break out long before the game was suppose to end. Good times, but it is funny that what we all remember most about camping was fighting over spoons.
Haven't been able to play much cards camping yet because it's usually just me and the 2 kids... 1 of them can play a few games, but the other is way too young. My favorite games though if there were enough adults available are euchre, Canasta, spades, hearts, and rummy. Cribbage isn't bad either.
