Hoyle's Rules of Games
Descriptions of Indoor Games of Skill and Chance, With Advice on Skillful Play : Based on the Foundations Laid Down by Edmond Hoyle, 1672-1769Book - 1983
From the late-17th to the mid-18th century, Edmond Hoyle undertook the enormous task of codifying the rules of games. From this foundation comes Morehead and Mott-Smith's Hoyle's Rules of Games, the basic players' reference since 1946. This guide has been expanded and updated to include rules, strategies and odds for over 250 games, from Scrabble to gin rummy, from backgammon to the most unusual versions of solitaire.
