Does this card game still exist on some form?

I used to play a set of solitaire games called Thieves And Kings, which for some reason is no longer available to download. I particularly enjoyed a game called Fortitude. Does this game exist under other names? I'd love to find a tablet version. [more inside]

Shortening up a game of Munchkin?

We've (my wife, her niece and I) recently started getting really into Munchkin. We have a lot of fun, but it's exhausting because a single game tends to run about 2-2.5 hours. How can we get to a point where we can get in a second game when we play? [more inside]

How to play cribbage

Ok. So based on answers to more than a few AskMes about good games to play for two people, a friend and I got interested in cribbage. Trouble is, neither of us knows how to play, and we don't know anyone who does know, so it's down to deciphering rules/wiki/YouTube. Not easy - I get the gist, but some specific play questions remain. [more inside]

Other games using Karuta Cards?

When I lived in Japan I spent new years with a family and we played a card game using Karuta cards. It wasn't a variation of Karuta... it had something to do with the portraits of the people on the cards? Like, whether they were princesses, ladies or lords. Sort of like Old Maid maybe? Does anyone know what this was?

I see your shotgun and I raise you a zombie creeper.

The girlfriend and I are going to Hawaii in a few weeks and have a 10 hour flight. I'm looking for a fun, nerdy card game to bring with us to kill some of that time, something that would be fun for two people. We both like the Fluxx variants, but they tend to spread out which seems inconvenient for the plane. Also probably things that require shouting or slapping (a la Spoons) would be bad. Bonus points if it's readily available at The Compleat Strategist in NYC.

Hiring custom artist for a card game?

I'm designing a card game and I have most of my own art for prototyping, but eventually want *real* art. I have no place where to look for such a thing or how much it would cost. Does anyone have any ideas on what sort of going rate such a thing would cost? Do you pay by the hour? Any tips are greatly appreciated.

How do I protect a card game invention?

I have invented a card game and would like to protect it before I start large-scale game testing. I can't find useful information about the laws surrounding protecting this kind of intellectual property. First, what kind of protections should I be seeking for a card game? Second, any recommendations on reputable, ethical lawyers in Seattle who can help me protect my game?

Big 2 Garden game (java, motorola E365). What the hell are the rules?

I have a Motorola E365. One of the Java games it comes with is a card game called Big 2 Garden. The idea appears to be to get rid of your cards by playing them according to some rules. What the hell are the rules to this game? There's a review of the phone which includes a screenshot of this game here.
