“Dustin's book is an excellent compendium of card games! While the title focuses on games for one or two people, it also includes games for multiple players. The book is well laid out—with a common vocabulary for card games, chapters arranged by game mechanics, a good index, and clear and concise instructions. As a side note, I was excited to see the game Whist included. I now understand the card game played in one of "Pride & Prejudice" movies.” —Stacy A.
