Definition of Card Game
"A card game is any game using playing cards, either traditional or game-specific." "Countless card games exist, including families of related games (such as poker)." "Some games have formally standardized rules, while rules for others can vary by region, culture, and person."
Types of card games
Solitaire (or Patience) games

Other card games
Many other card games have been designed and published on a commercial or amateur basis. In some cases, the game uses the standard 52-card deck, but the object is unique. In Eleusis, for example, players play single cards, and are told whether the play was legal or illegal, in an attempt to discover the underlying rules made up by the dealer.
Most of these games however typically use a specially-made deck of cards designed specifically for the game (or variations of it). The decks are thus usually proprietary, but may be created by the game's players.
