Bezique (sometimes Bésigue) is a card game which originated in 19th century France, and has certain similarities to the game Piquet.
It became very fashionable in Britain in the early twentieth century and was said to be one of the favourite games of Winston Churchill, who specialised in Six-Pack, or "Chinese" Bezique.
Special boards knows as markers were available to keep score of players' points.
