    I realized about halfway through this book that I wasn't really interested in who ran a card house for 2 years in New Orleans starting in 1867 and what different games they played there. That said it is a good history of what games were played in America leading up to the early 20th century. I'll probably skip ahead and get to the more recent (a mere 100 years ago instead of 150) time frame and finish it up later this summer.
