These are two games I've heard of but have no idea what they are.

"Reject" I saw mentioned in a USENET posting in rec.games.backgammon from 16 years ago. Replying to the posting is blocked because the posting is so old, not that I'd be likely to get an answer at this point. The posting said "I watched Tobias Stone, Peter Weichsel, Michael Rosenberg, and many others play bridge (and Hearts, and Reject and other games)" at the Mayfair Club. The poster used the obvious pseudonym "Phil Osopher", so I have no idea who it is.

"Bagel" comes from Lewis Deyong's book "Playboy's Book of Backgammon." He mentions a group of tournament entrants known as The Dumplings who exhibited skill at "bridge, backgammon, bagel, gin, klabbiash, etc." I was able to contact Deyong by email. He said bagel was some sort of card game but he never played it or saw it played.

Does anyone know what these are?

Bagel/Beagle? - yours for only $5 in the USA.

Try Lost Valley of the Dinosaurs for a real challenge.

This one seems more likely.

Yes, it does. I believe you've found it.

Some canasta flavor to it - 108 cards, picking up the whole discard pile.

Thanks!
