Professor Murphy’s Card Games from Parragon {Review}

February 10, 2015

When I was little girl I can remember passing many an afternoon playing cards with my grandparents. My Granny would sit and teach me how to play rummy, pontoon, hearts and old maid. Playing for matchsticks she would show me how to shuffle the cards, deal and how to win at cards.

When I saw that our latest Parragon Book Buddies assignment was Professor Murphy’s Card Games I was really pleased to be able to pass on my card playing knowledge to Roo along with learning some new games along the way.

You can have a lot of fun with a pack of cards – and even more fun with two. There are card games here to play with your family or your friends, and some you can play on your own – if you have the patience. Get it? And in the second half of the book I’ll teach you some of my favourite card tricks. –Professor Murphy

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

The Professor Murphy’s Card Game box set has everything you need to start learning all about how to play cards and complete card tricks. From the basics of how to shuffle and deal through to a range of games and tricks.

Roo really loved learning about the different card games, and it was lovely to share some of the games that I learnt as a child from my Granny. The card tricks really captured her imagination and has been trying hard to perfect them so she can show anyone who comes round to visit.
