Crazy Eights

I love the card game, Crazy Eights. I used to be able to play that for hours as a child and always begged someone to play with me. I should teach Mini #1 to play this game, I bet he could do it. We are trying to work on Tic Tac Toe, Old Maid (only we have some Disney version), and Go Fish at the moment.

Such a simple game...match the number/face or the suit and then get CRAZY when an eight is played. It really is about the simple things in life.

I digress.

The lovely Belle on Heels tagged me in this the game of Eights! Thanks Belle...I loved your answers and am ready to play along.
