There aren’t many interesting card games that involve only two players. There’s what? War, Speed, Go Fish? Fun for maybe ten minutes, but not something that you want to sit around playing night after night.
A couple of days ago, I discovered Gin Rummy. This was actually probably an unfortunate occurrence for me, because I have turned out to be rather poor at it. I won about three games, and then Keith got the hang of it and he’s been Gin Rummy King (self-crowned) ever since. It’s a pretty good game though. The rules are here if you want to play it for yourself. The best part is, you can keep a running tally and play for days until one of you reaches a previously decided-upon score. At which point I will, without a doubt, owe Keith ice-cream.
