Een 4-speler spel waar jij en je partner proberen om een concreet aantal punten te scoren om te winnen. Het doel van het spel is om 10 punten te scoren.
The game is for two couples sitting opposite each other.
The cards used to play the game are the cards form Ace to Nine (a small pack - 24 cards).
Its objective is to collect points in successive dealings in order to score 10 points as soon as possible.
There is a trump suit in the game.
The seniority of cards in non-trump suits, from Ace to Nine.
The oldest card in a trump suit is a jack (so-called the right bower), e.g. Jack , Ace , King , Queen , Ten and Nine . Only in this game Jack is of the suit - red or black, i.e. as in this example the Jack (so-called left bower), is also a trump but of second seniority. Thus, the seniority is like that: Jack , Jack , Ace , King , Queen , Ten and Nine .
NAMING THE TRUMP SUIT
Players are dealt 5 cards each. The other 4 cards create the pile on which the top card, is face up.
Beginning with the player on the left of the dealer, each player must accept or pass the trump suit marked by the card on the face-up pile.
If all the players pass, another game starts. If in another one none of the players accepts one of the three suits as a trump suit (and it is not possible to select the suit which has not been accepted), there are two possibilities, depending on the game variant:
Having named the trump suit; the dealer collects the face-up card from the pile and is obliged to play one of the cards in hand.
The player who has accepted the trump suit is called the maker.
He or she is the first to decide whether to play alone, i.e. wants the partner to place the cards face-down and not to participate in the game (essential if the maker decides to take all the 5 tricks and thus, score 4 pts, all the other game rules remain unchanged), or to play together. Then such decisions are made by the other players.
The game starts.
The player on the left of the dealer deals a card. It is obligatory to follow the suit led. If a player has no card of the suit led, he or she is allowed to play any card in hand. A trump card can be played only when a player lacks a card of the suit led.
The trick is won by the player who has played the highest card of the suit led or beats with a trump card.
The maker - alone or with a partner (depending on the previous choice) - must win at least three out of the five tricks possible. Otherwise the points are scored by the opponent.
The number of tricks in a particular dealing is always displayed at a player's nick, and the current scoring after the latest dealing is in the scoring bar.
The game is over the moment that one of the couples scores 10 pts or more.
