Educating with playing cards, an unexplored avenue!

What if the new trend was to let go of our screens and tablets for a moment of conviviality with friends or family?

All sorts of games exist!


The most universal, the easiest to access, the cheapest, the most adaptable of all: the card game!


Children and teenagers will love the strategy of a Tarot or poker game! Playing a role, testing your bluff and winning a difficult game are all opportunities to share hours of rich exchange and emotion!

At the same time, these games are excellent for developing memory, improving mental arithmetic and experiencing probability.


Finally, let's not reduce card games to a numerical and mathematical universe: the thousand-year-old game still allows us to associate symbols, to match figures and to gather families just like the young child who plays to imitate his parents! Practicing card combinations is an opportunity to continue our symbolic games and to rediscover our childhood pleasures.


Playing is also learning and progressing: exercising one's qualities: patience, intelligence, team spirit, speed, strategy, memory...


For example:


- "The battle game" allows to confront and measure oneself


- the Patience game confronts us with the need to wait and let go


– Une partie de belote propose de s?associer à 2 pour gagner !


- A game of Tarot encourages income forecasting and team building


- A poker game trains us to observe the personality of others, and not to show everything.


Finally, all these qualities are widely required in the working life. Playing cards is a fun way to practice them!


Au-delà du jeu : le hasard il s’agit du phénomène intangible qui parfois nous offre la chance puis nous la reprend sans crier “gare” ! Le hasard entretient le suspense, et attise nos émotions ! Pourtant nous ne sommes pas toujours attentifs au manifestations du hasard en jouant.


On the other hand, the educator or the adult who supervises a game has the necessary hindsight to discern the repetitive patterns that chance produces on the players. These observations are really relevant opportunities to communicate if the need arises!


So turn off the screen and those blue lights that keep you awake! Because now it's your turn to play!
