This game is great because it gives players opportunities to learn each other’s personalities more in-depth.
This is a card game that has been very popular for many years. In these games, players try to earn the most cards by putting them in sets of threes called “sandwiches”.
The game includes three rounds and players have to put down all their cards during each round before the timer runs out. Players have to put down three cards of the same type and then they place a fourth card on top of them. They do this again but with six cards, then nine cards.
