Format: Paperback
“Playing Cards” by Rob Beattie is an interesting book for those who want to learn some new card game or a trick, or already know some and want to expand their knowledge.

Inside reader can find information and rules about 52 card games from “Go Fish” to more advanced games like “Bridge”, together with 52 card shuffling and cutting techniques that can be mastered.

Also for those who want to play a little magician, the author has prepared 52 simple card trick that can be easily and quickly learned and thus impress your card partners, friends or anyone else (other than an experienced magician).

Card Games section gives reader an opportunity to learn standard rules for each card game, while listing similar versions for each of the games included.
Also the author is giving tactical explanations for the more complex games.

Great add-on is also inclusion of detailed scoring charts for games like “Bridge” in order for player to better understand the scoring system which is one of the most important prerequisites to be able to learn and enjoy these card games.

The instructions for the games, skills and tricks are provided in a simple and understandable manner, so that they can be used for all readers/players, both younger and adult.

Therefore, this book can be recommended as a book that is convenient to carry with you whenever you go on a trip or a party where you know there will be opportunities for card playing, because besides having playing cards there is anything that would be required to have fun.

Didn't buy it in here. But tried the trick top n bottom and it doesn't work at it needs a step between six and seven or five and seven to explain how you arrive at two piles. Have looked at the steps and tried several times, but no luck. Shame as the book is nicely laid out and that's what made me buy it. Yet another pile of bound paper to hold yet another door open because that's what happens to books that don't work for me.
