6-Players with cards

6 players is just such a mushy number.  For most game days, I'd much rather split 3 and 3 than play 6 player something er-other.

But at lunch time with the card crew, it just doesn't make sense to do that.  We all love playing with partners way too much.  So instead we play some double-deck bid Euchre.

And I've just decided that double-deck big euchre ends in a blow out a little too often for my tastes.

Spades is probably the opposite end of this.  A team is seldom completely out of a game of spades.  Our lunch games go nice and tight.

So... are there any better trick taking games for 6 players out there?  I know tichu *says* it will play six, but that just sounds odd.  Maybe pinochle or something?

  1. Maybe Zheng Shengyou? It's supposed to be best with 6, played in partnerships.


Behave. Your mamma could read this.
