Packaged in this classic style box set, Piatnik Bezique is ideal for both novices and experienced players alike. The classic card game is traditionally played by two players and is a 19th century French card game. Scoring is based on two distinct parts of the game: the "play off" and "the declarations". The aim is to form and be able to declare, scoring "melds", or combinations of cards, whilst also winning tricks in the basic whist fashion. The set includes two standard playing card packs and two Bezique markers. Piatnik offers the largest selection of standard and luxury Playing Card items all of which are made in Vienna from the highest quality materials.
