Ready, set, house of cards

Typically an activity at a party may be loud and rambunctious, but it doesn't always have to be. Sometimes, it's fun to have a little friendly competition with your guests as everyone attempts to build a house of cards.

What is a house of cards? It's a structure made completely out of a deck of playing cards (the same you used to put on the wheel of your bike to make it sound like a motorcycle).

To start, be sure everyone has their own deck and a place to work. It's important that the foundation of the house of cards is either on a rug or a placemat. Structures built out of cards don't do so well on smooth surfaces such as a wooden floor or a kitchen table.

So everyone knows there's an endpoint, place a time limit on the construction of the house of cards. Something like 15 to 20 minutes should be fine.

One last thing: be sure all windows are shut and all animals are in another room. There's nothing more tragic than spending time on a house of cards only to see it crumble into a game of 52-card pickup.
