Dear sirs:
in the "infantlie "episode of ther series i, it was pointed out that the rules to the game "laugh and ly down " were unknown.
also, the only evience for this game does not only come from lists of banned games, but lists of games, in this case, "Francis Willughby's Book of Games "

BTW, it appears that "hHanikin can'st abide it"was a version of a game called "one-and thirty"- a version of blackjack played to 31 instead of 21 points.
Also, "noddy-board" appears to be a form of cribbage, for there is a game called "noddy", a early form of cribage, and the scoring apparatus was called a "noddy-board"
