In several old films I see two people playing cards and on their turns they SLAP a card hard on the table… what is this game?
I would link a movie or site one for an example but .. brain fart. thanks.
My guess would be either poker or more likely gin rummy.
See “Born Yesterday”
What, it wasn’t Egyptian Ratscrew?
I think it was Egyptian Ratscrew.
Nah, I dunno, poker probably…
HA! YES. Born Yesterday is one of the films now that I recall. Thanks guys. It was always bugging me everytime i saw it in a film. Now to learn this game. Outside of Poker, black jack and Uno ….. i’m card illiterate.
Gin rummy is sheetloads of fun. My grandpa taught me when I was about 6.
I was gonna say Slap Jack, but I guess that wasn’t it, heh.
