Hoyle

A man, who in 1742, published his "Short Treatise on Whist" and wrote his name in the annuals of games being probably more quoted than any other person, except for those talking on spiritual matters, for "According to Hoyle" entered the language shortly after his publication and had endured until today.

If you wish to know more about this fascinating man then you MUST read David Levy's website that provides valuable links to other articles and research by the author and others - see -

- an enjoyable site to visit

in GERMAN and ENGLISH

Many people interested in military history know little about early war-games.
This book fills the gap, starting with those played in ancient and medieval times and continuing through to 1945.

War-games often had impressive and colourful graphics depicting real warfare in a dramatic way.


Bringing the games together here for the first time gives a unique overview of conflict before the modern era, showing how wars changed as new equipment became available. 


Ægir Gunnarsson's excellent

Icelandic
Playing Card Museum

Enjoy the collection.
