Card games in Albania
In The Playing-Card, volume XXVI, No 3, Franco Pratesi has described three Albanian card games, all played with the standard 52 card French suited pack:
- Pesë Katësh - a reverse trick taking game of the compendium type, in four deals, like a simple version of King or Barbu.
- Xing - a fishing game, somewhat related to the Turkish game Pishti.
- Murlan - a climbing game, perhaps related to President or Big Two. Requires red and black jokers.
