Question: which source(s) are you finding particularly informative on 
this game? The Bell book isn't very helpful, and I don't think I have 
the other sources; I'm curious which would be useful to pick up. In 
particular, I'm interested in primary-source information that would give 
me a better idea of where we know the game *from*, so that I can make an 
informed decision about when it's appropriate in an SCA context.

(The only other source I have with a game by this name is Murray, and 
his descriptions seem to be talking about a different game entirely...)
