National and regional card games: Jamaica

Card and tile games in Jamaica

The rummy game Kalooki is very popular, and many tournaments are held.

The draw and discard game Pitta Pat is played in Jamaica as well as in Belize.

The game known in Jamaica as Pay is identical to the British game Beggar My Neighbour.

Domino games are very popular: Partner Dominoes, Cut-Throat Dominoes and French dominoes.

I would be grateful for any information about other Jamaican card and tile games.
