Notes
Bezique is a two-player card game. The basic version is played with a double pack of 64 cards (two copies of A-K-Q-J-10-9-8-7 in each suit). It originated in France and became popular in the mid 19th century throughout Europe. It is reported to have been a favourite pastime of Winston Churchill.
