Computer and discount stores often have sections with
older/classic game titles that come shrink-wrapped without boxes
and cost very little ($5-$10). Software bundles offer another
affordable way to stock up on games.
Finally, the Internet can be a great source of inexpensive
software. Shareware and free trial versions are often available.
The name of the game is "Have
fun!" Play for enjoyment
and don't worry overmuch about who is winning and losing.
Also, let technology lend a hand. For instance,
holder and a battery-operated
shuffler can take the effort out of
handling playing cards. A variety of aids exist, from
simple and inexpensive to very sophisticated.
