1. The list of games clearly indicates whether each game is for 2,3, 4 or more players. That helps narrow down the choices to the right games for the number of people.
2. There is a basic age guide for some of the popular games. For example, Go Fish is suggested for children ages 6-9 while Hearts is recommended for older children.
3. Card games are divided into three categories, helping you find a game that suits your mood. Those categories are Hilarious, Social and Studious. If you are sitting inside for 3 days because of a snow storm, you might want to break the gloomy mood with a hilarious game...or perhaps you want the diversion of a studious game. In any case, you have your choice and you'll know what to expect.
4. A special section focuses on card-playing etiquette and this is much appreciated (by me).It has common sense rules but it sure helps to learn them early!
My only reservation about this is the lack of a Table of Contents. This is a very exhaustive index, however, so this is really a minor inconvenience.

It's fine, but "no big deal" since it's been a standard reference for years. Just replacing a missing copy.
We like it. So many different card games. There are many to learn. Just beware that you may need multiple decks for some of the games described.Published 6 months ago by Tankitha
This book was rated as some yellowing but the pages were far older/yellower than I anticipated. It was intact but I would have rated it no better than average condition or worse.Published 12 months ago by Pamela L. Roth
