Can anyone tell me more about the card game “Hazard” I must admit I've never heard of it even though I know Henry loved his card games.

Sophie, I always thought the old English game of Hazard was played with dice not cards? I shall go away now and look this up and probably think myself silly for thinking this!

It's a dice game

 

Hazard is an Old English game played with two dice which was mentioned in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in the 14th century.

It's always bunnies.
