So, I have finals this week. Two classes. The one today won't be too tough, but the one on Wednesday might be a little rough. Fortunately, I don't need to get above the mid-80s in either.
“It’s not my nature to complain, but so far today we’ve have three movies, two filmstrips, and an hour and a half of magazine time. I just don’t feel challenged.” – Lisa Simpson
“Of course we could make things more challenging, Lisa. But then the stupider students would be in here complaining, furrowing their brows in a vain attempt to understand the situation.” – Principal Skinner
So I was looking for 2-player card games for the wifing unit and I to learn, and I think those are the ones I've settled on. One thing that makes it easier is that the first two use the same 32-card deck.
We got a bunch of suggestions from the book of faces when I asked about 2-player card games, but I figure I'll solicit for more here. I didn't like a bunch of the ones on the book of faces for a variety of reasons (for some reason, I don't like rummy-type melding games, I like trick-taking games), though a few are great and quite suitable for our purposes.
