The King of Nuts

By sconway - Posted on 01 May 2009

A nice pack of cards arrived today, courtesy of Steerpike.

These are no ordinary cards. They are from Budapest, Hungary!

Looking forward to learning some new games to play with these.

Plus, how can you go wrong with any deck that includes the King of Nuts.

Thanks again, Steerpike!

Oooooooh, I want!

Speaking of cards, I just got two decks of Scopa cards (Piacentine and Trevigiane). Thanks for getting me hooked!

(I found a good resource page for a variety of foreign cards.)

I picked them up in Budapest about four years ago and haven't done anything with them yet. I'm really looking forward to seeing which games you play with them.
