Khanhoo

Khanhoo by Charles Goodall & Son, 1895. The game is played with two packs of 31 cards, each containing ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 of hearts, clubs and diamonds, a king, queen, knave and a joker. The king, queen and knave belong to no suit, but hold miniature cards which combine to form tricks, such as a king and 2 nines of hearts, or a queen and 2 eights of clubs. The joker can be played as any other card (see brief extract of rules here). The history of the game is in the 32-page booklet by W.H.Wilkinson, B.A.; apparently we owe it all to the “Heathen Chinee”. See the Score Marker
