"Chambers Card Games" includes a wide-ranging selection of almost 100 card games: setting out the rules, explaining how to play, and offering strategies and hints. Clear and concise, this new fully-illustrated collection is authoritative yet--as importantly--great fun. There's a glossary, a history of card games, advice on card-playing etiquette, and information on playing cards on the Internet. Find the card game you're after with the useful list of alternative names, or use the number of players index to find a game for every occasion. There's also a unique supplement on cheating: protect yourself from card sharks . . . or pick up a tip or two to get ahead on the sly.
