I just came from Quizzyland, and I'm ready for a 'nap' ...that (nap) would also be the answer to # 22!

Sorry Sandi, #22 isn't nap, I've never heard of a card game called nap, if there is one sorry. It is a common game played by bored children, instead of fighting.

Time to start a "War"! or "Tag"!! You're it!!! (#22 is War, or maybe Tag) ... Now do I have it right???

"War" is another card game that's on my list (another card game I hadn't heard of till I saw it on the list) ... "Tag" fits your "_a_" clue, but I don't know that it'as a card game.

Did I leave my brain in quizzyland earlier?. There actually is a card game called nap (at least according to a list of card games that I have there is) --- I know nothing about it other than that it appears on this particular list of card games.

As many Brits will confirm, there is indeed a card game called nap. You can find a set of rules at

www.pagat.com/trumps/nap.html

But if you're ever invited to join a game in a British pub or club, check the local rules in detail before you play, because rules about calls and stakes vary from place to place. In some schools there's a bewildering succession of overcalls of Nap (Napoleon, Wellington, Blucher and God knows what else), with all sorts of stipulations about how you must play your hand.

The name is short for Napoleon (who conquered everybody until Wellington came along and conquered him, hence the sequence of calls). It's probably also the origin of the racing tipster's "nap" or sure-fire tip, on which he advises you to "go nap", i.e. bet high in the hope of cleaning the bookies out.
