it is a game played similar to spades but a bit more complex. it is almost like two games rolled into one. the first portion, wagers are made around the board until someone cedes. the winner declares trump for that round. at this juncture, after someone has won the bidding, players add up points they have in their hand. points are assessed based on card combinations, i am not going to list them. then the second part of the game is played. this portion is almost identical to spades.
oh hell, lemme just find a site to explain
Yeah, I've always heard of it but never tried to learn how to play. Most card games are to complex for me. (simply brain) Gin Rummy and solitaire are about all I can handle. -_-
