Please help

I am not sure exactly what you’re asking
Do you mean the game the Ahoy??
This game requires a special deck of cards
Did a resident and ask you about playing this game??
I like games that use a regular deck of cards or are simple like Uno
You want to have games that most people can play

I'm sure we are all aware of the game SNAP, well one of our group members taught us her variation, it's called Animal Grab. Instead of snapping the cards, at the start of the game everyone chooses an animal noise then when a pair comes up you yell out your animal noise. It is very fun and everyone laughs a lot because most people, staff included forget their animal in the heat of the moment and end up yelling the wring sound.

Thanks for the card game ideas.
