This replaced an exact set of cards I got at a rummage. I did not know it had a book to go with it. It has lots of card games we used to play as kids, about 40 years ago, that I had forgotten about and will try again. The deck is larger than a regular one and has fun looking kings, queens, and jacks. You will not be disappointed. Even for adults. We got it for a VERY large cribbage board. Just perfect.
