Bezique, or Bésigue, is a 19th-century French melding and trick-taking card game for two players. The game is derived from Piquet, possibly via Marriage and Briscan, with additional scoring features, notably the peculiar liaison of the Q♠ and J♦ that is also a feature of Pinochle, Binokel, and similarly named games that vary by country.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
