25 Unusual Card Games

From Overshare Card Games to Art History Activity Cards

— September 17, 2015 — Life-Stages
Far from Gin Rummy and Go Fish, these card games, inspirational decks and activity cards break all the rules of conventional card play and create something entirely new.

After the breakout success of Cards Against Humanity, a variety of social playing card games appeared on the market. For example, 'Never Have I Ever' is a card game that encourages players to share their most scandalous, risque stories. Other versions of the classic deck of cards include sets aimed at inspiring, like the aphorism cards that provide down-to-earth insights about life or The Brand Deck, which helps company owners establish their brand identities.

For the little ones there are activity cards which recognize that a game of war can go on forever and instead let kids use decks of cards to get ideas for more energetic activities.
