While for most, it's all about having a good time with friends, gorging on food, free-flowing alcohol, and earning some money if you will, some prefer less serious games such as matha (forehead), where one sticks a card on the forehead without seeing it and plays the game accordingly. Then there's also banko, in which you bet between numbers and the closest bet wins the pot of money. Another way to keep the debauchery going is to introduce variations in teen patti — such as 'Mahalaxmi' and 'Lallan pe Kallan'. "It's a very technical game and if you're very logical, you're not really gambling. So keep up with the spirit, we play a lot of variations," adds Kalra.
Apart from the various games, one more way to add that zing to a card party is to put the spotlight on the stack of cards itself. Instead of the plain and boring every-day cards, experiment with gold-plated cards, designer cards with caricatures of Bollywood villains or even the bikini cards.
