Card games in Israel

It seems that the most popular card game is Whist - not classic Whist but a version with two phases of bidding, the aim being to win the exact number of tricks that you bid.

Yaniv is a draw and discard game that has recently become popular.

The tile game Rummikub® was first promoted in Israel, where it was very successful and has remained popular.
