Brahm and I are both on holidays for 3 weeks for Christmas! This is excellent however it marks the first time in several years (yes) that we've actually seen each other every day for 3 weeks in a row. And definitely the first time ever that we've spent this much time together.
Needless to say within a few days we realized we needed something else to do besides watching TV and walking to Broadway/the Farmers' Market to accidentally spend a bunch of money. We decided to start playing card games.
We started off with Dutch Blitz, which was the only card game we own besides a deck of cards (but we weren't sure what to do with the deck). Eventually my mom informed us that UNO was basically Crazy Eights, so we looked up the rules and started playing that too.
Here's the thing we realized: playing simple card games like Dutch Blitz and Crazy Eights is totally underrated. It is SO FUN. Even after losing about 6 straight Crazy Eights games in a row yesterday I still wanted to keep playing (and later redeemed myself by winning 6 straight games). We might have to learn a few more games over the next couple weeks because playing cards really is a free way to get hours of fun!
