About the Author

Generally acknowledged as one of the greatest authorities on magic in the 20th century,  Walter B. Gibson (1897–1985) was interested in the subject for most of his life. He wrote 18 books and numerous articles on magic, edited four magic magazines, and collaborated with some of the greatest magicians of the past 50 years. In the course of his long and active career in magic and related areas, Gibson also wrote the famous Shadow novels, under the pen name Maxwell Grant.

This book is not helpful at all. All it is an alphabetical list. It should be divided into chapters, such as Poker, Solitaire, Two-handed games, etc. There is no table of contents. The index is no good, either. For instance, under the heading of Poker, it should list all the poker games, but it doesn''t. Basically, to use this book, you have to know exactly what your looking for.

Tricky to find a game by name
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2019
Navigating to a specific game is tricky, usually involving lots of scrolling. There are no clear section breaks around the sub-categories of "poker" and "solitaire" so while scrolling the alphabetical list of game names appears to reset. (Within the full list of games,... See more
Navigating to a specific game is tricky, usually involving lots of scrolling. There are no clear section breaks around the sub-categories of "poker" and "solitaire" so while scrolling the alphabetical list of game names appears to reset. (Within the full list of games, poker games are alpha, and solitaire are alpha.)

The description of how to play isn''t written well. Rather than explaining the basics, then the nuances, then the exceptions, it''s all written together.

We purchased the book to enable us to play a number of different card games (rules and how to play). The book has information on many card games, however, its format, terminology, and lack of illustrations make it hard to use and frustrating. It was published in 1974 and it does not appear to have been updated. The terms, layout, and game names are badly dated. There is no table of contents. There is a glossary, but no game name index. If you are simply looking for a how-to-play and rule book for popular card games, try another book.

Some retired women in an independent living retirement facility decided we wanted to play card games we had played many years ago. So when we met and couldn''t remember all the rules, I ordered "Hoyle''s.." and it has served us well. We play twice a week and have a lot of fun. But watch out Google and other guides that can answer questions directly.
