Abstract: In many communities card games are seen as bad habits which are need to be avoided. Card games are also seen as a costly game. Often one half of one’s income is swallowed up and he is subjected to defaulted loans. The impact of card game is causing serious problems in families. This is seen as one of the activities of daily life. The impact of this has been found in Sri Lanka. But the study shows that the male and female in the village Of Thethapalai participate in the game. In this respect, are all men and women in the village of Thethapalai participating in the game? What are the problems faced by families because of the card game? What consequences are the children facing? It is the main and auxiliary basis for what measures should be taken to protect families. Out of 350 families living in the village of the Thethapalai, 150 families were selected and out of them 70 members were selected and interviewed whereas 100 people were analysed based on direct observation, interview and discussion. According to the results, a large number of men are engaged in card game in the village of Thethapolai and women are engaged in the business of giving money or interest to the cardholders. According to the results divorce, debt, theft, suicide, children are the causes for the people’s vulnerabiliy. Issues such as the destructions of property and exclusion in the community have been identified. It has been found that various factors influence their recession even though many measures are taken to minimize the impact of it on families. It is therefore recommended to identify ways to protect families from problems caused by playing cards.
