Playing Cards on Shabbos


Is it permissible for adults to play with playing cards on Shabbos?

Thank you


While this is not the type  of activity Shabbos is intended for, and not in the spirit of the day, no actual Shabbos prohibition is violated with playing cards.

    1. As long as the cards are being sorted/selected for immediate use to play there is no Borer concern.
      When the game is finished the cards may not be sorted to be put away, something which is generally not done with card games.

  1. May adults play Rumikub on Shabbat?

    1. Yes it is permitted, no different than cards
