Bezique is a classic card game traditionally played by two players. Originating in 19th century France, 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 tracks in the basic whist fashion.
The game is played with a 64 card deck consisting of Ace through 7 of each suit doubled (i.e. 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are stripped from two decks and the remaining cards combined).
