Overview

With more games than you ever knew existed and as many tricks as a professional magician has up his sleeve, this super-huge collection gives you days' and days' worth of fun! Some take as little as 10 minutes, for others you'll need to master some rules first, but when you get in the swing of it you'll never put down that deck of cards. Try rummy, poker, euchre, whist, and hearts--all the basic games, with all the instructions and scoring procedures--as well as solitaire for those moments when you're alone. But, when you've got an audience, put on a show with such card capers as "I Love the Piano," where you transfer a card from one pile to another with a magical "snap" of the fingers. You won't ever want to stop playing!
