This is the reference books on games, both card and board games: Scrabble, Poker, Bridge, Gin Rummy, Hearts, Solitaire, Dice Games, Dominoes, Roulette, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Cribbage, Parlor Games such as Charades--even Children's games such as Fish, Old Maid and War are here. Along with the rules there are even tips on strategy. One of those really useful reference books. ( )

Been playing cards and games for a while now..lol. Really need to learn some of the proper rules.

"According to Hoyle" is an expression you don't hear often now, but it means (of course!) according to established rules. Our paperback Hoyle reminds me of the rules of childhood card games. More importantly, it taught us (self and husband) to play Sniff, a domino game we play several times a week. ( )

"In 1742, Edmond Hoyle published the definitive book on the most popular game of his day, whist. Games evolve with time, just as whist gave rise to contract bridge. However, more than 250 years later, Hoyle's is still the definitive name when it comes to the rules of the game--whether it's bridge, backgammon, Scrabble®, or blackjack. The game player's basic reference, this handy guide has now been updated and expanded and includes rules, strategies, and odds for more than 250 games, from such favorites as: Scrabble®, canasta, contract bridge, gin rummy, chess, backgammon; solitaire games: Nestor, Pounce, Pyramid, and Russian Bank; Poker variations: Anaconda, Blind Tiger, and Hold 'Em; children's games: Beggar-Your-Neighbor, Memory, and Slapjack; computer games: Minesweeper and Freecell; and more."--From backcover.… (more)
