The last game I played this year was Dominion, two games with Johanna. The year 2009 review is coming soon, I’ve got most of it done already. This session, by the way, pushed Dominion to over 50 plays, seventh game to reach such lofty heights (yeah, I don’t do a lot of repeat plays in general).

  1. This is quite a collection of cards. I got a set of Gaigel/Binokel cards for Christmas, but I don’t know how to play either game. I was wondering if you have a set of rules in english for either/both of these games. Thanks for your help.

  2. I pieced together Gaigel rules from various German rules. I only have them in Finnish.
    Binokel is in David Parlett’s Penguin Book of Card Games, which is very much worth owning in any case.

  3. I have just bought some Ferd. Piatnik & Schne, Wien No 128 Union Tarock cards, they are postage dated 1900, but the green stamp on the back says, Andere Uebertretungen des Gesetzes uber den Spielkarten-stempel vom 15. April 1881 werdenim Sinneder 14, 15 und 16 ….dieses Gesetzes mit den darin festgestellten Strafen geahndet.
    can you please tell me, about these cards and is there any chance there is a book to go with them, or information on their meaning.
    Thank you kindly

  4. There’s no meaning to them – they are playing cards, nothing else. I was able to find a picture of the pack online, and it looks like it’s the standard “Industrie und Glück” (does the Tarock number 2 have the imperial eagle with those words?) tarock pack, which is still used in Austria. They are excellent playing cards.
