Hindooly

Hindooly was invented by Randolph Alexander Glen (1875-1934) and published by Chas Goodall & Son Ltd in c.1904. The name may reflect the fact that there was a popular trend for all things Asian, particularly Chinese, from around 1885. The set comprises a special pack of sixty cards with four newly designed suits: knobs and shields in red, spikes and tiles in black. In each suit the cards run from 1 to 15 with the suit and value marked in the top left corner of each card. There are no court cards.

The rules booklet cites several variations of the game, for different numbers of players, including Patience and Progressive Hindooly.
