This isn't a book full of old favourites; all of the games selected offer something a bit different - new twists and alternative rules. But Shuffle & Deal is more than a collection of card games. Fun to read and beautiful to look at, it features a collection of stunning artwork dating from medieval times to the present day.
Alongside the games are historical anecdotes, top tips for winning, and card-speak jargon busters, designed to make everyone an expert.
From the earliest settlements at Mount Sandel around 7000 BC to the first meeting of the Northern Ireland Assembly in 2007, the book introduces the great moments in Irish history to children. Double page spreads are devoted to nine key moments: BATTLE OF CLONTARF DESMOND REBELLIONS BATTLE OF THE BOYNE 1798 REBELLION GREAT FAMINE THE RISE OF THE GAA EASTER RISING WORLD WAR 2 (concentrating on the Bombing of the North Strand - when the war came to Dublin) GOOD FRIDAY AGREEMENT And social history is not forgotten - here you'll also find the first publication of the Irish Times, Dana's Eurovision song contest victory, the opening of Dublin Zoo, Riverdance and Stephen Roche's victory in the Tour de France. Illustrated throughout in full colour, here's a perfect introduction for children to Irish history in bite sized chunks.
