Examples

  • The combinations in your mind are so few, that, as in a game of only three cards, there is no skill in the playing; while in my nature, as in that game called tarocco, there are half-a-dozen packs mixed up together, and the address required to play them is considerable. '

    Lord Kilgobbin

  • "tarocchi" (plural of tarocco) ` a game played with 78 cards painted with suns, moons, devils and monks. '
