Whether you invite friends to dinner on a Friday evening or meet your partner in a park for a picnic over the weekend, playing cards is always an entertainment option that never fails, especially because it does not distinguish between age or if it is the right occasion for playing.
What is striking about traditional card games is the fact that now these have their corresponding digital versions, although it is a direct consequence of this era in which we live virtually: working, interacting with friends and family, shopping and even visiting remote places. And it is striking, because creators and software developers have found the opportunity to be more creative and work on new versions of these traditional games. Of course, this has caught people’s attention, feeling motivated to try new games, and asking themselves curious questions such as how a new version could be generated from a popularly known game.
Especially during 2020, a year marked by social distancing as a result of the pandemic, people have the need to connect with their loved ones, finding in online games an entertainment option regardless of the distance. In India there is the case of Andar Bahar, which is now one of the traditional card games now available online, a simple game involving a single deck pack of cards. It is easy to learn since you do not need to be the best strategist to win, the outcome will be a matter of luck and guessing.
The origin of the name comes from how the cards are placed on the table. “Andar” refers to the left side of the table, and “Bahar” to the right spot.
