Black Always Wins!

Today we learned about the history of playing cards. Kids love card games, so we explained a little bit about how they originated. Many believe that they were first used in China. People played games where the winner won money. So gambling has been around for a long time!

We talked about the different suits used in modern cards, and suits from a long time ago used in different countries.

When the kids started getting impatient, we broke out our own original set of cards!

We played our own game called “Black Aways Wins!”

”You have black!”

”You have more dots!”

The rules are a little complicated to explain, but essentially… “Black Always Wins!”

We all had a good time playing, but there could only be one champion.

”I win!”

We all congratulated our new king!
