I Am Kloot is a left handed card game made famous in the diaries of Jerome K. Jerome*.
The general ethos of the sport is to conduct oneself at all times in a thoroughly dishonest, cruel and deceiving manner. On winning a hand, one is required to gloat in the harshest fashion, provoking shame and self-loathing amongst fellow players. Tactically it is traditional to quickly raise the stakes so high as to leave the opposition recklessly insecure and anxious to commit to future endangering wagers that on transaction would throw said opponent into a Dickensian poverty. Games rarely last more than one hand and all betting commitments are to be honoured and enforced on the night.
*The rules of the game are expounded in Jerome’s acclaimed sequel “Three Men On The Bummel”.
