An Easy to Learn 2 Player Card Game
VIDEO: How to Play Cuarenta -- Ecuador’s Favorite Card Game
It’s common to visit a park in Ecuador, especially in the Sierra region, and see a group of older men crowded around two people playing cards. These two old-timers are probably playing Cuarenta, the most popular card game in Ecuador.
Cuarenta means 40 in Spanish. The game is called this because it only uses 40 cards, and the first to 40 wins the game.
It’s a really fun game to play. If you and a partner are traveling to Ecuador, why not learn the rules so Cuarenta can keep you entertained as you travel the beautiful country of Ecuador.
