Eleusis (Game)

The cardgame invented by Robert Abbott in 1962, and later popularized in 1977 by Martin Gardner in his Mathematical Games column in Scientific American magazine.

The game requires several players, and is usually played with an ordinary 52 card deck and a notepad with pencils. One player assumes the role of Rulemaker by secretly writing down some basic rules for play to proceed, and - with permission of the Rulemaker - the other players attempt to play cards on a solitaire-like tableau. The game illustrates the need for inductive reasoning in a limited information context.

When Demeter came to Eleusis looking for her daughter Persephone, she pretended to be a nurse, and taking care of little Triptolemus, she attempted to make him immortal by putting him in the fire.
Eleusis, they say, was, on a later occasion captured from Megara by Theseus, after he had come to Athens, and in Eleusis he slew the Arcadian Cercyon 1, son either of Branchus and the Nymph Argiope 1, or of Poseidon and Amphictyon's daughter, or of Hephaestus.
