Linger Longer and hold on to your cards!
You'll find this another fun kids game to play.
Begin by having each player pick a card. The one who draws the highest card shuffles the deck and deals the cards face down, one at a time.
Each person receives the same number of cards as there are players.
The rest of the cards are placed into a center pile.
The dealer reveals the last card she dealt to herself. This card's suit is the trump suit for the game.
The trump suit cards beat any other cards from different suits.
Each player tries to win as many tricks as he can. He does that by beating all the other cards that are layed down in each round of play.
The player on the dealer's left starts and lays any card face up in the center of the table.
The next player plays a card in the same suit, if he can.
After each player plays a card, the highest card from the suit that led wins the trick, unless a trump card has been played. If so, the highest trump card wins.
The winner of each trick stacks his cards and sets them off to the side.
He draws a card from the center card pile and starts the next round.
The last person holding cards is the winner.
