Card games in Peru

One of the most popular games is Golpeado, a version of Basic Rummy for 2 or more players.

The contract rummy game Telefunken uses two standard international packs with four jokers (108 cards).

In Bolivia and Peru the game of Rocambor has survived, played with the 40 card Spanish pack. This is a version of the old Spanish game Hombre, and is very similar to Tresillo as now played in Spain.
