This is a good one that can be done with just a deck of cards, no need for anywhere to lay them down, just holding the cards in your hands.
Shuffle the cards first. Then… name a rank of card (seven, queen, etcetera,) and flip up the top card of the deck. If it’s of that rank, you lose, otherwise you can put that card face up at the bottom of the deck (so it’s completely obvious once you’ve gone through the whole thing,) and try again. If you can get through the deck without losing, obviously you win.
I can’t remember offhand what the name of the game is. Starts off being pure luck, of course, but then there’s a little opportunity for skill, because the more cards of a given rank have been turned up, the less likely they it is to be the next card turned up. On the other hand, especially if the deck hasn’t been shuffled too thoroughly, there’s a weird tendency for cards of the same rank to appear near each other, so you don’t necessarily want to call exactly the same rank that has just appeared.
And, once you’ve noticed that all four nines, say, have already come through, then you’re home free and can just finish off the pack on that rank, ‘nine.’
