Cards in the 2000's

Guest Author - Robin Rounds Whittemore

Back in the day, people used to have to deal cards the old fashioned way. They actually took cards out of their box and dealt the layouts or to players manually. There were no buttons to push for instant set-ups.

If you wanted to play with people, instead of just playing solitaire alone; you actually had to go to your friends house and invite them over, or invite yourself and your deck of cards, in to their house. Telephones were also in use back then to get a game going between people.

To think that you could play cards with people in another country was unheard of; never mind across town, state or the whole country. You can now beat your cousin Keith and get even with him for taking your lunch money over a game of slapjack. Get him on his computer and challenge him to a game.

All that has changed with the technology we have today. Card games are on PC's, Facebook, and even cell phones. The only thing you need to worry about is making sure you are not being charged money, unless you want to be; or airtime.

Before going on any site, be it on the computer or your cell phone; make sure you know what charges, if any, you are incurring. If any website asks you for personal information, chances are you are going to be charged something for playing. Check it out before you give any personal or banking information out, or back out of the site altogether.

On your cell phone, you can always check with your wireless provider about what games are free of charge and which aren't. On many cell phone, some games are free, except for airtime. If you have unlimited weekends, make sure games are included in free minutes before just playing willy-nilly.

Once you know what charges are, or what sites and times are free; feel free to get in touch with long lost friends and pick up where you left off. You can even reach out to other countries and make new friends.
