Reader's note

With cover artwork that resembles a vintage playing card, this is one Penguin handbook that will really stand out in your sports room. There are enough card games to occupy Scheherazade's sultan for a thousand and one nights with plenty left over! This fantastic collection contains 300 of the best. From conventional bridge and poker to klabberjass, spite and malice, schafkopf and bassadewitz, the games are arranged in international groups, with an introduction to the pedigree and peculiarities of each family. More than seventy are described in detail, with hints on strategy and tricky points, while another 200 are concisely explained. Give this wonderful book a try and learn something new on a rainy day.
