    Default Games to play with Seniors with facetime

    I am trying to help keep my very senior Dad from feeling too lonely as a Florida snowbird.
    I can Face Time him with his iphone, and am thinking about trying to play cards.

    He does not have a computer and is challenged using his iPhone, so he can't download and install new apps.

    Suggestions are welcome.

    We successfully played cards for about an hour.
    We both had fun, but for me it was particularly rewarding seeing him enjoy himself.
    I used a pair of spaghetti boxes to hold his cards in a position that the iphone/ipad camera could see them.

    It worked out really well.
    We bet smiles and giggles. Maybe later we can use a fistful of pennies, or chip markers. Whatever it takes to keep it interesting.

    My dad and I used to play darts by telephone. That was before face time and skype etc.
    After a few rounds he'd say "welp, gotta pee talk to ya later".

    Darts? You each had a dart board at home?
    Interesting.
