Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a terrific compendium of card games from all around the world, as seen through the eyes of the Dean of American Game Designers, Sid Sackson. This book also contains a few original games by Sackson, including the wonderful Card Stock Market game, which was later sold in boxed form as Black Monday. This inexpensive volume would be worth its price if only for that!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By southern charm on September 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is the perfect little book for family trips. Small, light weight, about the size of a Reader's Digest. The format, instruction, and illustrations are great. I appreciate the Level of Difficulty label for each game. It makes selecting a game easier.

For those who works nights, this book provides lots of entertainment in the wee hours of the morning on our nights off.

The games weren't as unique as I was hoping, but it sure gave a variety of options of games. Many of them seem a bit redundant, though.
