A web customer from Australia is asking us about an old dice game that I
don't know about. So, I thought I'd forward his query to this list in hopes
of someone else answering him. I have a modern compendium which mentions
Quince (Fifteen, Ace Low, or Cans) that is a black jack variant. Wonder if
it is related? I'll be interested in your responses, too!

Thanks--
