Recommended for: card players, sceptics, historians
Read in January, 2008

The second of two volumes that revise and expand upon the history of tarot games first given in Michael Dummett's book The Game of Tarot (Duckworth 1980). The development of the games is traced in great detail throughout continental Europe. Many more games have been added to the earlier account but there are still some games that are not listed. However, for anyone who loves card games, these are important books. Sadly, as academic publications, they are very costly.
