Faro is a card game, a descendant of Basset. It enjoyed great popularity during the 18th century, particularly in England and France, and in the 19th Century in the United States, particularly in the Old West, where it was practiced by faro dealers such as Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. A game of faro was often called a -faro bank-. It was played with an entire pack of playing cards and admitted an indeterminate number of players, termed -punters-, and a -banker-. Chips (called -checks-) were purchased by the punter from the banker or house from which the game originated. Bet values and limits were set by the house. Usual check values were 50 cents to $10 each. -wikipedia.org High Hand Designs - Best selling poker shirts, hats poker signs and gaming décor
