    Glückshaus is a relatively modern version of the larger family of Games of Seven (games played with two six-sided dice and a stake board with felds usually numbered 2-12, often with an emphasized 7.). This paper looks at various historical versions of the game and shows how the modern Glückshaus version and its pecularities (e.g. a missing feld for the number 4) came about when the dice game was combined with a stake board for a card game.
