What we're about

This is a group for people who enjoy playing cards, or would like to learn some fascinating card games. Perhaps you have one or two favourite games and are looking to find a friendly and sociable group of people to play them with. Maybe you have often been interested in learning cards but have been put off by the need to learn rules or find someone patient enough to explain them. Or perhaps you were introduced to some simple card games as a child or play Solitaire on your phone and would like to find out how much fun it can be to learn a card game from which you need to be dragged screaming and kicking from the table at the end of the evening because it is so compelling! You may even be a poker player but want to branch out into something more interesting and less ruinous to the bank balance!
We play a range of different games from around the world, with a particualar focus on some of the most interesting strategic games from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, such as Skat, Doppelkopf, Koenigrufen and other tarot games, Jass, etc. However, we are also open to any friendly people who just want to come along and play their favourite card game (canasta, cribbage, euchre, hearts, spades, etc) or introduce others to a new game. The only constraints are that we do not play any form of poker, for which there are other meetup groups available, and we limit ourselves to traditional games which do not require a proprietary pack of cards. There are loads of meetup groups in London where you can play those types of game, but very few where one can play traditional card games.
Right, whose deal is it?
