This highly entertaining volume spotlights over 60 popular games from around the world. Instructions, detailed illustrations, and clear examples highlight Sampen (Asia), Blackjack (Europe), Blackout (the British Isles), Samba (Latin America), Poker (United States), and much more. Includes an introductory chapter to the history of card playing and a valuable glossary of terms.
Most of us know a handful of classic card games and are aware of a few more, but Sid Sackson's book presents a wealth of card table enjoyment that most of us never suspected existed. Included are fascinating, exotic, and downright fun games from across Asia, Europe, and Latin America. There are more than 60 included, ranging in difficulty from easy to hard, and able to entertain anywhere from two to a tableful. The American games range from old favorites to recently created amusements--including a football card game that will keep gridiron fans going through July and August.
