This set comprises 2 packs of cards, one red, one blue, a rule book, a note pad and some play paper money. The quality of the paper is quite poor, the cards are a bit thin, and I was hoping for some plastic chips for poker but, hey, for £7.99 it's fine. The games covered are English Short Whist, Oh Hell, Hearts, Poker, Rummy, Canasta, Piquet, Ecarte, Five Hundred, Bezique, Auction Pinochle, Pontoon, Michigan Rum and the Patience games Beleaguered Castle, La Belle Lucie, Canfield, Klondike, Miss Milligan, Salic Law, Spider, and Sultan. There are slightly too many patience games for my liking and I would have liked Cribbage rules included. As you will have noticed, that does not total 35 games as claimed on the box, so I can only presume that they are counting every variation to the basic games that are given after each one. I don't know much about card games so I didn't realise that quite a few require "short" packs, which means you have to extract the required cards from the full packs before you can play.

This was a present for my grandson who is nine. What a hit it has been. He is addicted to card games now and we have had great fun playing together as a family and reviving all the old games we used to play. Better than playing on his own on a computer.

Interesting that since I complained the price has reduced significantly. A couple of packs of cards, notepad and flimsy book of simple games for £15+ totally unacceptable. Had difficulties getting a refund too.

2 packs of cards and instructions for loads of games. Bought prior to a holiday and worked a treat. Quick service and well packaged.

An entertaining alternative to computer games, and sometimes much more fun.
