If you download this file you will have a playable reconstruction in colour of a long-lost card-game, popular in Jane Austen's childhood.* Authentic instructions for solving its central puzzle are included. The document is intended to be a research tool. After describing what is known of the game's development 1760-1800, there are the beginnings of a search for modern equivalents. It concludes with an open request for information about other cards, board-games, discs, which have a similar acrostic base. *Donald Measham, compiler of this file, and author of Jane Austen and the Polite Puzzle (lulu 2007) which explores the Austen connection, would be delighted to hear from anyone who has relevant information.
