Many years, we try to put together a list of card games as gift suggestions. Aside from being compact and great for travel, they’re usually more approachable by people who are used to games that utilize a standard playing card deck. As a bonus, they’re affordable compared to many other games due to the less expensive components. Of all the times we’ve featured card games, I don’t think I’ve highlighted the fact that they make great stocking stuffers! So if you’re looking for something compact, affordable or approachable to gift this holiday season, then this gift guide is a great starting place!
Cake Auf! is a fast-paced card game all about making desserts. In Cake Auf, you are a chef tasked with making delicious desserts from around the world. You’re given 3 Recipe cards, which you complete by collecting relevant Ingredient cards. However, beware the Action cards! Other players may want to swap recipes, or even force you to discard your finished recipes. First chef to finish their recipes wins! Cake Auf is a simple, easy-to-learn baking card game for all audiences, big or small.
Pirate Tails is a set collection game in which players draw nut cards and choose which ones to score, which ones to reveal, and which ones to hide. At the end of each round, players will have the chance to raid nuts that have been hidden and hopefully add to their booty.
At the end of three rounds, players score based on both the value and quantity of each type of nut that they were able to collect.
