    Card Games For Dummies Settles Arguments

    This is a very thorough and simplified how to book. The tips that are offered to improve your strategy in different card games is invaluable. I run a Friendly Game Day at a local library and I used it as a bible one day in settling a dispute over a canasta game. We used this as our guide and when a dispute arose over some different rules someone had learned for canasta we settled it with this book. Originally I had borrowed this book from my local library but when I saw the battered shape it was in, I bought my own and highlighted it. I have used it to learn cribbage and euchre. It is quite an asset to my game group and my home library. It settled the dispute at the game day, but now I need to find a book that gets seventy year old ladies to get along.

    There has to be a better book on the subject than this

    We were interested in learning a few variations on a card game. Even knowing the basics of the game, this book was a struggle. If we had to count on this book to explain basic play, we'd still be reading. Not certain how someone wanting to learn from scratch would make out.

    There was a great deal of information; however one required a trail of bread crumbs to follow it. It would have been much easier has basic rules of play been concisely listed and the history or anecdotes following separately. Strategy could also have been given its own place since one would look for this after comprehending the basics. Everything was very jumbled up.

    All in all it was a very difficult read....Oh and we did learn eventually find the information we sought but it wasn't with this book.
