How to Play

Objective

SET-UP

  1. First, players need to decide partners. They can either do this on their own or deal 1 card to each player. The two highest cards determine one team while the two lowest cards determine the other.
  2. Teammates sit across from each other (EXAMPLE: P1 - Team 1, P2 - Team 2, P3 - Team 1, P4 - Team 2)
  3. Shuffle the 52 card deck and deal 13 cards to each player. The last card dealt to the dealer's hand is dealt face-up. This card determines the "trump" suit for the round. When it's the dealer's turn to play, they return this card to their hand before playing a card of their choice.
