   Missed my expectations
I am a new pinocle player and I found the book to be very helpful. I thought that if I got the rules etc, I would read it, but the book didn 't really get into enough detail. It included two player and three player, but there may have been a short paragraph on four player. I put the book on the shelf and may help with another card game on the road.
   Not one of my favorites, but I don't regret the purchase.
Love the for dummies books, but this one is a little lackluster. Still fun, accessible, but lacking that informative vibe that most books have. Much more useful as a reference book than for a full read.
I was looking for more illustrations along with explanations ''. I use the text merely as a quick reference, if any.
   basic overview of many games
Didn 't think it went far enough into the nuances of the games to give you a solid start. Here you will not find the answers. You can find online just as detailed rules of each game.
