Overview

Few inventions have given as much universal pleasure as a pack, or deck, of cards. Most homes have one, but not many people appreciate the variety of games at their disposal. The object of this new book is to explain as clearly as possible how to play the world's best card games. Technical terms have been kept to a minimum and defined as they arise, and sample deals have been used where appropriate.

The games have been selected for all tastes. The classic, popular games like Bridge, Pinochle, and Piquet are included, as are the complex Skat and Ombre, and the addictive Gin Rummy. The best gambling games are here, from those found in casinos, like Blackjack and Baccarat, to those played privately, like Poker. Additionally, the book includes several games specifically for children. And for the solitary player, seventeen of best patience or solitaire games are described. There is also a glossary of card-playing terms, and a special index that lists the games according to the number of players they require.
