This 17th century British card game for two players is known only from a description in Charles Cotton's Compleat Gamester. The scoring cards are the seven of diamonds, which is the highest card, ace, king, queen and jack of trumps. Unusually, the trump suit changes with every trick. Further information and a reconstruction can be found on David Parlett's Penneech page.
