This book is the old version with all the old rules, and, since I am an old guy, I like things old. The book was just as expected.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Doug Erlandson TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 16, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"According to Hoyle" is an essential resource for anyone who enjoys playing games, who wants to play them by the rules, and who wants strategies for winning. Altogether more than 200 games are covered. In addition to the rules for just about every card game under the sun, "According to Hoyle" also gives the rules for checkers, chess, dominoes, backgammon, mah jong, and dice games (including craps). In addition, the book gives strategies for winning certain of these games. Having this book in your possession will introduce you to many games you probably never knew existed. I know it did this for me.

Great, concise rules for many games. We use it regularly when we play games with out numerous teenage grand children as they think we old folks make up the rules to win.

According to Hoyle has always been concise and easy to read. Can't ask much more for a reference book, can you?

A great read for anyone interested in cards. I managed to pretend to my friends that I knew nothing about cards before cleaning them out after reading this book...
