Bringing together a collection of card games, this book looks at competitive games which involve an element of skill, and stakes of coins, counters or matchsticks. Each game is clearly explained, with illustrations of card hands. The book is split into four sections covering competitive games for playing with friends, various forms of poker, family games and games involving a banker. All the popular competitive games are included (Newmarket, poker, three-card brag, rummy and baccarat) as well as some less well-known ones (hoggenheimer, slobberhannes, lame brain and skin).
