Fun Card Games to Play With Your Friends in your Hotel Room

hotel room

Picture this, it’s been a long and busy day outside touring in the heart of Bangkok city, and you are just now returning with your good friends to your two-bedroom hotel in Sathorn Bangkok. You have no plans for tonight aside from maybe some drinks in the room and maybe some party games. 

Well, if you have a deck of cards, now is the perfect opportunity to learn some new card games. These simple and easy-to-learn card games can help you pass the time and have some fun while hanging out with some friends in Amanta Sathorn in a two-bedroom hotel room in Bangkok. 

Knockout Whist

 This is a simple game that’s fun to play for between 2 to 7 players. In knockout whist, ace is the highest number. To play this game, start by dealing 7 cards to each player. After the deal, the next card is put face-up on the table, and becomes the ‘trump’ suit. The player on the left side of the dealer must place the first card following suit of the trump, with the rest of the group following his or her lead if possible. 

The highest “trump” or suited card in the game wins the “trick,” and this player gets to lead the next trick. After your group has played all seven of their cards, players that haven’t won any tricks are removed from the game until just one person is remaining. 

Palace

Palace is a card game that’s suitable for up to 6 people at a time. To start the game, the dealer must deal every player in the group nine cards. Three of these cards will be dealt face-down while three are dealt face-up and the remaining three cards become the hand of the person who’s playing. 

The first person who lays a three or the lowest card possible in the group is the person who gets to start the round. In turn, everyone in the group can place a card of either equal or higher value on top of the discard pile. Cards that share the same value can be placed together. Players can continue to draw from the stock of remaining cards in the deck to make sure that their hand always has three cards.

When the stock is depleted, the player will be able to play their face-up cards and turn over their face-down cards. The main goal of this game is to get rid of your cards the fastest. 

Eights

This game can be played with up to 7 people, but its also possible to play even with only two people at a time. Each player in the game receives five cards, or seven if you’re only playing with two players, and the rest of the cards are put on the table facing down. The remaining cards are “stock” and there will be one card placed face up as a starting card.  The first player needs to lay a card on the starting card that matches either number or suit, if the player can’t do this, they have to draw a card from the stock. When the stock is gone, players who cannot lay cards need to pass. In Eights, the Eights are “wild” and that means you can play them at any time regardless of suit or rank. The idea of Eights is to score as many points as possible, with the first person to reach a score of 100 declared the winner. Face cards are worth 10, aces are worth 1, and eights are worth 50.
