My girls love to play card games, but can’t hold more than 2 cards in their hands at a time- and 2 is kind of pushing it. That means that they have to lay their cards out in front of them, which is helpful for manipulating the game in any given direction (if you’re into that), but does take something away from the overall concept of the game. These are the solution to that problem. They’re inexpensive, easy to hold, easy to get cards in and out of, and they make it more difficult to cheat. So you make the choice.
