Description

Rook is a trick-taking game. Sometimes referred to as "Christian cards" or "missionary poker", Rook playing cards were introduced by Parker Brothers in 1906 to provide an alternative to standard playing cards for those in the Puritan tradition or Mennonite culture who considered the face cards in a regular deck inappropriate because of their association with gambling. Hmmm...

In case you are too young and never heard of the game, or are too old to remember how to play, (that would be me)... The Rook deck consists of 57 cards. There are instructions included. Box has some damage where tape was removed and it took off some of the Raven. Inside it is signed by what looks like a childs handwritten name and redone as an adult.

A used deck, 74 yrs old...good condition for the age. Love the bird!

Enjoy!
