If you are looking for a new card game, or a fun way to add Serbian culture to your daily life, learn Tablić. Tablić is a Serbian card game for 2-4 players.
Recently I was enjoying a trip to Florida to visit my parents and sisters. I was playing Uno with my Dad when all of a sudden he said, “We should play Tablić!”
I haven’t played this game since my trip to Serbia in 2001, and honestly, I don’t remember if I ever played before that. Anyhow, the next day my Dad hands me a deck of cards and re-teaches me the game. It didn’t take long before my sister and mother joined us for a 4 person game.
My husband, determined to learn Tablić, sat by inquisitively observing the game. He found it a bit confusing, but he’s use to complex games likes Sheepshead, which I don’t get at all, plus… we had a few drinks.
Tablić is a fairly simple game. Basically, it is a matching game using math. I taught my 7 year old daughter who picked it up right away.
Add some Serbian time to your life and play the game with your kids, spouse, or friends. Now, have a BLAST and Play Tablić!
Learning challenge: Try playing Tablić while saying the numbers in Serbian.
