'No matter what your circumstances are in life, a simple card game can make you feel special and can give great joy, if only for a few fleeting moments'.
Phileas Fogg (whose game was Whist)
Cards can be played anywhere, anytime with anyone. They are a great way to break the ice with strangers, have fun and put the stresses and worries of the day behind you. Every explorer and adventurer carries a mini toolset for those calamitous moments.
