If you love card games, but just about played every game you know to death and need something new, this is a great book. This must have every card game with every variation of it ever concieved. It gives good explanation of each game, along with how they are played in different parts of the world. The problem with the book, however, is the same. It has every rule to every game ever written. It is not a good book for reading, but a great one to have on the side in case you are ever really bored, or can't decide on all the rules of a game. It is great for anybody with that old game they just can't quite remember all the rules to. Problem solution: if you find a game you like, have a hilighter pen readibly available for the table of contents. it is easy to loose track of what may have been a great new card game. Recommended only for real big card game buffs.

Well, the information is a little old and doesn't cover some newer games either. Although it has a lot of card games in it my one complaint is the books layout. It reads like a novel and games are referenced in the index. Needs a much better layout and bold titles. Other than that it's not bad but really needs a revision.

This book is a valuable tool for the person who loves card games and wants to check on a rule of a certain card game. It is an excellent reference. Anyone who plays cards would find this to be a wonderful addition to add to their booklist.

I agree with another reviewer, the book needs a refresh. Hard to find the game you're looking for by just browsing (rather than using the index). Note that the copyright still says 1974 so it does feel a bit out of date. Was disappointed that it didn't include rules for Spades.

I found it difficult to find specific card games, once I did, the instructions were unclear and lacking in any depth. Most of what I found were references to other games which may or may not refer me to another game for instructions.

This is an old and trusted book. Any one interested in playing a card should have this item handy,for not knowing the rules
could cause some headaches or cost you some money.
My only complaint is the time it took to get to me,the delivery was rather slow.

I liked this book because it was organized to give different variations to the different card games in an organized fashion. Because of this feature, I have already used the book a number of times.
