Our family has been playing lots of Gin Rummy.
Lightnin' Hopkins is the preferred soundtrack.
I won't get into which version we play, but up until bedtime we play as a family and share the day's news, gossip and of course "smack talk" as is common in many parlor games.
Our butternut squash, pride and joy and the most skillful smack-talker has gone to bed and it's time for a husband and wife game.
I'm about 90 points behind and need to focus.
We'll talk to ya later.
