TAROK, a game of cards very popular in Austria and Germany, and played to a limited extent in some parts of France. Special cards are used, and the rules are complicated. The name Tarot was originally given by the Italians to a certain card in the pack as early as the 13th century, but was afterwards applied to the game itself.
