This list is for games for which there is literature. Literature refers to a description of the game and its rules, the strategy and tactics, as well as example games. All of these must be included and the information presented should have a certain depth. If something is missing, then do not list it here. A mathematical analysis just by itself does not count.

The information should either come as a book, ebook, or as a website. If the literature takes the form of a book, then please give the ISBN (or similar) as well as the language of the book. If it is an ebook or a website, then give the URL. I will not accept defunct websites. Items not fitting the description will be deleted.

There are traditional games for which there is more than enough literature, i.e. Chess and Go. They will appear here for the sake of completeness without listing any specific literature.

There was a real explosion of Hold 'em Poker books several years ago, when the WSOP became a hot TV event. Not sure if it is still quite as popular as a few years ago (I got rid of my cable about a year ago), but I remember seeing poker books from every half-way decent player/personality lining the "Games" shelf at local bookstores.
