*I'll Give You a Topic...

Some of my earliest memories are of my elders sitting around the table, playing cards. Cribbage and poker were the mainstays. Poker is the first "grown-up" card game I ever learned.

Nowadays when it's cold or rainy outside and there are four or more adults around, I usually suggest Phase Ten.

What's your game?

My game now is Euchre. I picked it up in high school and it was love at first sight. The Peacock family game was Scat but it's been many years since it was played at our reunions. I don't know why it fell out of favor - it was a lot of fun.

As kids we played Spoons, it the Air Force it was Spades, and my wife and I now play Gin Rummy or Cribbage.
