This book includes classic games from the past, such as piquet and bezique; national games from abroad, such as skat and preference; timeless favorites like rummy; and modern inventions and discoveries, such as ninety-nine and barbu. It has been specially compiled for three types of players: beginners, who have never touched a card before but are willing to find out what fun they have been missing; regulars, who play one or two favorites regularly and need a reference to resolve disputed points; and explorers, who enjoy experimenting with card games from different times and places.

Parlett is a very good writer. Very few people can write down rules of card games clearly and unambiguously, but Parlett has this skill. There are fewer games in this book than usually in general card game books, but the presentations of games are more extensive and more in-depth. For each game, there is also an extensive strategy section in addition to the rules.For each game there are also www links in the book, even a link to my canasta guide.
