    Default Names of cards games

    There are two card games that I would like to know the names in English.

    Game 1

    material : playing cards
    player : at least two
    instruction :
    1. hide one card in a place out of all players' sight
    2. distribute cards to all players evenly
    3. remove all cards in pair (same in number) and put them on the table, then keep those not in pair in hand to start the game
    4. if there are 3 players, player A will draw one card from player B, player B will draw one card from player C, player C will draw one card from player A, then continue the cycle
    5. keep on removing all cards in pair after you draw a card from others
    6. whoever has the last card on hand without any pair up will be the loser
    7. the last card on hand should be in pair with the one hidden away before the start of the game

    Game 2

    material : playing cards
    player : at least two
    instruction :

    1. have a number of cards in pair ready, eg 20 cards
    2. turn all cards over to hide the number
    3. player A turn one card to check the number & show the number to other players as well, then turn another card in the same manner
    4. if the numbers of two cards are the same, player A can keep both cards, if not, turn the card back over to hide the number
    5. other players will do the same until they find 2 cards are same in number
    6. whoever gets the most cards will be the winner
    7. the game can train one's memory

    Thanks / ju

    I don't know the first one, either. Where I come from, the second one is called Concentration. We use the whole deck.

    For more card game information, you might invest in a Hoyle's:

    Amazon.com: Hoyle's Rules of Games, Third Revised and Updated Edition: Albert H. Morehead, Geoffrey Mott-Smith, Philip D. Morehead: Books
