Gnav ~ a Norwegian Card Game
GNAV er et klassisk kortspill med aner helt tilbake til 1400-tallets Italia.
Gnav or Gnau is the Norwegian version of the old card game called variously Cucu (or Cuccu) in Italy and Gnau (or Gnav), Kille or Cambio in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, where it is still played. The pack consists of two series of picture cards and two series of numerals; the exact number of cards and the design and composition of the picture cards varies from country to country. The picture cards are almost as amusing as animal tarots or fortune-telling cards.
In Denmark the game did not remain popular after the 1920s and appears virtually extinct in Denmark, but you may procure this deck in practically every large bookshop in Oslo.
