Overview

More than two hundred years ago, game instructor and author Edmond Hoyle was the ruler of rules. His word carried the force of law, and the players of games across the world turned to his many books for the resolution of disputes, disagreements, and disorderly gaming. Now, centuries later, Hoyle's authority still holds sway.

The user-friendly index includes more than 1,800 entries covering all the most popular games, giving conceivable variation and strategy.

Whatever the game, Ainslie's Complete Hoyle is the standard reference for its rules of play and the strategies needed to win.
