Most Popular Card Games in Thailand
There are many different card games, such as Uno, Rummy, Gin Rummy, and Mah-Jong. Thailand is well known for its lack of English-speaking players who play cards. This guarantees that any Thai person will know the rules of every card game in their native language. The rules might be slightly different in English (if you ever speak fluent Thai), but the general idea is usually applicable and easy to understand.
Uno (Thai: อยู่) – This is probably the most popular card game in Thailand. It is the second most popular card game after Rummy. It is like a combination of Rummy and Uno. There are many variations to this game, such as Thai version, Japanese version, and an Australian version. However, the Thai version of this game is one of the most well-known and easy to understand.
Rummy (Thai: รันฟู) – This is one of the most popular card games in Thailand. In Rummy, two or more players compete against each other to score points by having cards with matching numbers or colors. Unlike Uno, players can create their own hands from the cards in the game. (There are no official rules; this is just an idea.)
Gin Rummy (Thai: นรันฟู) – This is also a variation of Rummy. It is another popular card game in Thailand. The name “gin rummy” came from English card games called “Gin Rummy” and “Gin Rummy 500”. In Thai, the word “gin rummy” is similar to Thai words, which can be translated as: 1. you win all; 2. not a word or saying (without expressing the meaning of not); 3. to cook, burn, consume; 4. to have a great deal (of something). It is not clear how Gin Rummy became popular in Thailand. It is believed that it probably came from the presence of Chinese cards and the translation issue about “gin rummy” card game.
Mah-Jong (Thai: ม้าจอง) – This is another popular card game in Thailand. It is very similar to Chinese Mahjong and Japanese Mahjong, but there are many variations in the game and some differences from their versions.
