Of these only glic is unknown to me, thanks for the rules reference.
However the website mentions a game I assume refers to the gameboard 
with the round inlay, dartboard type. It is named Tourniquet, which 
could be Turnstile in english?
 From what I see in the pictures it could be an early form of roulette? 
There are diffent numbers, blanc et noir instead of rouge et noir, the 
green parts could refer to impair?
The inner part could be rotatable or the middle hole could hold a 
rotating arrow??
