What kinds of card games do you enjoy? Do you like to try new games?

I prefer interesting, strategy-oriented games. My main card games are probably Tichu, Doppelkopf (Double Sheepshead), Was Sticht, Mu, Cosmic Eidex, Mit List und Tucke, and Durak. I deliberately seek out new games worth adding to my repertoire, and enjoy sharing what I've found.

Do you play more for the fun or the competition? Casual play, or rigidly defined tournament-style matches? Lynch, harass, or compliment cheaters?

I play mainly casually and for fun, but that doesn't mean I'm not trying to win as well as win more often. Cheating is unwelcome except in games where it's actually part of the game (I do have a couple like that).

What other areas of gaming do you enjoy?

I enjoy a pretty wide variety of strategy board games (tending towards heavier economic and war games), role-playing games when I have appropriate people and time, and some video/computer gaming (though not FPS or MMO games). I generally avoid gambling or tournaments.


Card enthusiast looking for people interested in playing card games specifically, rather than just as a diversion from board games.

What Robert is saying about this Meetup Group

As accessible, varied, and widely interesting as card games are, you'd think this would have been done sooner.
