As most of us know, if something is "according to HOYLE®," then it must be accurate and trustworthy. This all began over two hundred years ago when lawyer Edmond Hoyle's writings became the last word on the rules of card and board games. That legacy of authority and integrity continues to this day. That's the reason HOYLE®, produced and distributed by The United States Playing Card Company, is one of the world's premier names in playing cards. We set the standards in quality and design.
