    I'm a cribbage junky. My uncle taught me years ago. My wife was the first person I've met my age (actually five years younger) that knew how to play. I knew she was a keeper the moment i found out.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a cribbage junky, not a cribbage snob. I enjoy phase 10, skibo, uno, I can get into pitch, spades, I guess I love cards in general. If you've got a game I'm willing to learn.

    We love Skip-Bo. When the kids were little, we found Skip-Bo Jr. It was super easy to teach the kids. It has been a family favorite ever since. Funny thing is that we have a deck at home but never play it. We always only play it when camping. It is now a tradition to play Skip-Bo by lantern light.

    If the grand kids are along it is skip-bo or uno. If we are alone or with friends we like a game by any of three names called Michigan Rummy, Tripoly or Rummy Royal it is a mat table game.

    We used to play a fast moving game at grouse camp called 'trondune'. Can't remember precisely how it is played, and the guy who taught it to us has sadly passed away. I think it came over with some WWII veterans.

    Dutch Blitz was the first card game to come out in our newbie PUP life. Great fast game though it requires its own cards.

    My father in law showed us how to play Fort Frances smear. (That's where he's from) he also said that Minnesota had it's version too. It was a fun game and drove my wife nuts which was hilarious to say the least.

    We like Crazy-8's because Spoons gets too loud for a campground :)

    We play all kinds of card and dice games while camping, but I think our favorite, is a game called Sequence.

    The last couple of years we have been playing Wizard. I've come to hate that game because I always lose. Other players effect my ability to win, or give away tricks..grrrr...... I'm still a big fan of Wild Rummy and Cribb.

    We play Uno with the girls and then Sequence (Technically a hybrid card/board game) once the girls go to sleep.

    We'll play anything, but our group tends to play cribbage and Shanghai Rummy.

    We love "Catch Phrase" - it's not a card game or a board game, but it's a riot. It wouldn't work well if you have sleeping kids as it involves talking, but it's a ton of fun for two players all the way up to as many players as you want. There are rules and score keeping, but we ignore those and just have a blast laughing and enjoying it.
