Hearts to Hearts, A Printable Card Game

    Posted by  ·  January 26, 2013

    This printable card game isn’t your usual Hearts Card Game.  Typically Hearts revolves around winning tricks. In a trick, everyone takes turns playing one card. Whoever plays the highest card in the suit led (the suit of the first card played) picks up all the cards played.  In Hearts, you want to gain the lowest amount of points possible. Whoever has the fewest points at the end wins. The cards that are worth points are the Hearts (worth 1 point each, regardless of value) and the Queen of Spades is worth 13 points by all by itself. While a fun card game, we have own own take on this card game!

    Hearts to Hearts Printable Valentine Card Game

    This Heart to Hearts game plays just like the popular game Apples to Apples and is a perfect easy card game for kids.   Basically, there are two decks. Each player draws several cards from the “answers” deck. Then, when it’s a player’s turn they draw a card from the “questions” deck and pose that question to the group. The group must answer with one of the answer cards in their deck- hoping to be the most correct out of the bunch. Usually though, the answers and questions don’t quite match up and they are hilarious!

    We all know that Valentine’s day usually means a bunch of candy. More and more children’s parties, classroom activities and family play time revolves around something sticky and sweet. Well, not for me this year!! This hearts card game is a  great kid-friendly game that is easy on the pocketbook, and easy to make.

    Examples from this card deck:

    All of the words and phrases are pretty G rated. (For anyone who has ever played Apples to Apples knows it can get pretty dirty minded!) So this is a safe for any classroom or family game! Oh, and did I mention its EASY AS PIE to make? (With less ingredients.)

    Also, there are a few blank “question” cards in the printable, so if you’re working on vocabulary words with your kids, or if you want to use pet’s names, or favorite toys in a question- just write those in!

    Supplies for Printable Hearts Card Game

    • Two colors of card stock, approx 5 sheets for each deck.
    • Black and white (or color) printer.
    • Scissors.

    How To Make It

    1. Download the Answers PDF, the Questions PDF, and the Backs PDF.
    2. Print the answers and questions on two different colors of card stock.
    3. Run the Question and Answer pages through your printer again, this time printing the Back PDF onto the back side of the card stock.
    4. Cut along the lines shown on the back of the cards.
    That’s it! If you wanted, you could use a corner rounding punch for a little extra pizzazz in your decks.

     

    I love this cute little game, its light weight, doesn’t cost a fortune to buy, print or assemble, and its adorable! You’ll have loads of fun playing this little phrase game, and I hope it brightens your day! It would be a huge hit at a classroom Valentine’s Day Party! Conversation Hearts BINGO is another awesome Valentines Day game.

        I am not sure what your issue is? Can you explain a little more? Backs and fronts?
