Hoyle’s Games

In chapter 9 in Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 3: Aggressor, the team has to infiltrate a gambling hell. When writing the scene, I referred to an antique book published in 1803, Hoyle’s Games, Improved. It was originally published earlier, but this is the version that would have been around at the time of my book, and which the gamblers would have referred to.

If you want to check out what the card and dice games were like, you can read a scan of the book on Google Books (this is where I got my copy). I admit I’m a bit of a nerd about these things, but I enjoyed looking through this book!
