Family card game for mixed skills and size?

Recommendations for a card game with strategy, lots of luck (my poker-playing kid stopped playing chess with any of us years ago) and for 2 to 5 teen/adult players to play in an hour or less. I really want one that uses decks of plain cards as we end up losing bits of game pieces after a few months. We'd be willing to put in time learning the rules but Bridge is too rigid, Uno way too simple. Meaningless points betting is fine. What's worked for your family?

For very weird cribbage

I'd like to buy a deck of cards that includes negative numbers. So all number cards should have a negative equivalent; ideally there'd be anti-face cards and zeroes, too. Where do I buy/commission this?

What do you serve for an evening of card games?

My grandmother taught me that a game of bridge can be vicious and cut throat, but she didn't teach me what it takes to host a card game. A couple of friends are coming over Saturday night to play cards (probably bridge, but we might play hearts euchre) and I don't know what to provide other than paper for scoring, a table, and a deck of cards. What food or drinks should I serve? [more inside]

How can I make a fun Hearthstone deck?

I'd like to make a real, paper deck of Hearthstone cards that would be personalized, as a gift for a partner who loves the game. I've played a little but not enough to know what might make the cards fun. Aside from wanting to include friends and family as characters, I haven't any idea where to start. [more inside]

How do I go about releasing a card game into print-on-demand format whil

Question: how do I go about releasing a card game into print-on-demand format while retaining commercial rights? (I want to make it available for hobbyists and players, but don't want a company to scoop my design and sell it without attribution). I make card games as a hobby, and want to release them into the wild (so the term goes). I just don't want to yield commercial rights, since there's nothing worse than watching someone pull a Thomas Edison on your Tesla-esque ideas. Some people suggested looking at DrivethruCards.com and a few other places (Cards Against Humanity uses a free-license concept I'd love to know more about).

Bridge club/school in SF

Can anyone recommend a friendly bridge (the card game) club in San Francisco? I wouldn't mind taking an intro class to brush up, since my knowledge of both conventions and strategy are pretty slipshod and semi-self-taught. Ideally there would be a critical mass minority of younger folks (let's say <30) around.

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.

Sadistic kids card game?

My niece is trying to remember the rules of a card game that involves inflicting various acts of sadism on whoever ends up holding a black Jack. Said sadistic acts are determined by the suits of cards somewhere in play - for example, a Diamond results in a punch, a Club results in a pinch, and so on. The only other thing that she can remember is that one of the black Jacks is removed from the deck before play commences, leaving just one. Any ideas what the game is called, and how it's played?
