Tags 1364, games, 14th century, history, early references

1364, St. Gallen, Switzerland. A local ordinance forbids dice, allows board games, and leaves the subject of cards untouched. (M. Dummett and S. Mann. The game of Tarot: from Ferrara to Salt Lake City. Duckworth, 1980.) This is often cited as the date before which cards could not have been known in Europe.
