Nobody seems to have asked this yet, but forgive me if I'm an idiot.

I'm looking at the map and the Maverick foyer has something called "Tichu Town" with something underneath I can't read. (it seems I can't find the hi-rez image of the map)

What exactly is this? Just an area designated to play Tichu in?

It is probably for the Tichu tournament that happens every year. It is a good time as well :)

Underneath it says "(cardgames)". This is an area outside the library that will remain open, even after the library closes at 1am. It has smaller round tables, suited for playing card games. See what I did there?

We'll have a number of Tichu decks available on these tables for immediate use - no need to check them out of the library, but please take good care of them and I'd prefer they don't "walk away" so they can be used in future years as well.

Basically it's a concession to the Tichu community since no one has stepped up to run a tournament this year, as discussed here.

There are other card games that aren't Tichu? What?

It's okay, Chapel. Only Tichu exists.

I think Jeff is just confused because cards are used in board games, like Agricola and Ticket to Ride that he thinks they are "card games."

Every time I see this thread I start thinking of Steve Earle's "Guitar Town".

And we're sure he's not referring to Poker?
