    Vingt-un better than Commerce;

    I don't understand what is the meaning of:
    Vingt-un better than Commerce;

    =============================================
    from: Proud and Prejudice
    "Yes; these four evenings have enabled them to ascertain that they both like Vingt-un better than Commerce; but with respect to any other leading characteristic, I do not imagine that much
    has been unfolded."
    ==============================================

    Thanks for helping me.

    NB - "Pride and Prejudice"

    Both were card games, popular at the time.
