About the Author

Peter Arnold is an author and editor, most of whose 50 or so books concern sports and games. He has written histories and encyclopedias of boxing, cricket, football and the Olympic Games, and wrote the official FIFA guide to the 1994 Football World Cup in the USA. He has also worked as editor and main contributor of part-works on boxing and football, and has ghost-written instruction books for a West Indian Test fast bowler and a Canadian world snooker champion.

Peter devised some of the mental games for the television series The Crystal Maze. Several of his books are on table games, including some on individual card games, and he has written three books on gambling, one of which was described by a New York author as `the best history of gambling`. Many of his books have been published in the USA and in foreign-language editions.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is packed full of games I've never heard of before, all of them explained clearly with an example move to get you going. It also contains alternative names for each of the games.

I can see I'll be playing these games for a long time to come!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little compendium of card games. 12 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reasonably easy to follow instructions, and a good selection of both 1 deck and 2 deck games. I found it a lot easier to follow than other older card game books I have used in the past.
