I have witnessed the greatest ever CAH play (The Oedipus complex: kid-tested, mother approved) and thus have no further interest in the game.

I play a lot of games with very similar decks to the standard, but slightly different (so they have an excuse to sell you a deck of cards, I guess). Haggis, Tichu, and Abluxxen (Linko in English) are my favourites.
FWIW tarot cards are perfectly usable in most western card games - the minor arcana, at least. If you take away the major arcana, you're basically left with a 56-card deck of four suits and fourteen cards per suit in order. The gameplay is basically the same then.

I've played most of the enat card games mentioned here, mostly in middle school. We played a bit of Texas Hold Em, ERS, Gotcha (here called Cuadrito because you need four cards and a square/cuadrado has four), a tiiiny bit of Spoons, and a hell of a lot of BS. The games are so incredubly fun.

There's another game I used to play with my cousins called Mistake. It's rather hard to explain over a post (all of my explanations of it have been in person with a deck in my hand), but it's also really good once you get the hang of it

Not Tarot, no. I bought one myself because I thought it was weird, but it's at home so I can't go look at what the different cards were. iirc it was mostly a standard deck in terms of the numbered cards, but the face cards were different.
