I love games, so i gave two stars for the idea of having a game bar in kunming !

- salad missed ingredients (no tuna in the tuna salad, isnt odd ??)
- food came 1h30 after ordering for one of my friend !!
- a bit late for the sleepy FuWuyuan maybe, but at 10pm we ask for the explanation of one game = he refused !


abcdabcd: FYI, "The French game of tarot, also jeu de tarot, is a trick-taking card game for four players using the traditional 78-card tarot deck. The game is enjoyed throughout France and also known in French-speaking Canada. French tarot is one of the older forms of tarot and has remained popular for centuries. Tarot is a member of the tarock family of games."


The word tarot has French origins and only means one thing in the English language as far as me and the dictionary are concerned. But if you want to confuse people, go ahead and hold "Tarot" nights which have nothing to do with fortunetelling.

[tar-oh, ta-roh]
any of a set of 22 playing cards bearing allegorical representations, used for fortunetelling...
