Over my lifetime I have played more cards. They are easy and portable, you can play them anywhere. There are a lot of great board games, too, to play with groups of people.

Love to play cards. Over the years have enjoyed card groups with friends, and the occasional trip to Vegas with a little gambling thrown in.

I love playing cards, I find it more challenging. You never get the same hand no matter how many times you play. Board games are the same, every game.

When I was a child I played many board games and some card games. As an adult it became the reverse.

They're portable. We also play board games but a 50/50 split was not allowed

There are more card games you can play by yourself to stimulate your brain that board games.

I play neither, both are boring to me, and to my husband, as well.

I am alone with the exception of my 2 cats so if I play anything it has to be solitaire. Darn cats cheat at board games.

OMG Board games! My husband and I have managed to acquire quite the board game collection since COVID hit, and we're even looking into making life size games to play in the yard when we can start to gather again!

Both are great but slight nod to good old fashion board games!

Board games allow for much more creativity. Cards are fun, but I personally enjoy board games more.

They fo up by Thanksgiving weekend and down by New Year's Day. We are tired of them by then, anyway.

If you don't put any holiday decorations up, you can "take them down" quickly.

January 21st the ornaments came off the tree, 22nd the lights came off, 23rd it went out the door. Haven't unplugged the porch lights yet -- they still come on for a few hours when it gets dark!
