I grew up in the Midwest, playing cards. When I was a kid, my family would play kid-friendly games like Go Fish and Old Maid—and as we grew older, we transitioned to more strategic games like Hearts and Gin Rummy. In high school, at lunch my friends and I would play ERS and Bullshit. Today, my favorite card games are Euchre and 500, two fairly complicated trick-taking games that no one in Pittsburgh will play with me, much to my lament.
