Fittingly it's been basically five years since I last posted a diary here - I see I wrote one in 2007 during my summer between jobs. I'm glad for the meme, as back in January I thought a big update would be worth writing but I'm still more procrastinator than not. It's Friday and I'm happy.

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.
