more varied than Hearts.

cards) and the unique ROOK Bird Card. Also includes score sheets and the first
modern Players Guide, ROOK IN A BOOK - an 80 page book with rules for all
popular ROOK variations including "Kentucky Discard" and TOURNAMENT ROOK. You'll
find a complete analysis of these variations plus "winning tips" to improve your
play. Rules for many other variations are included for: two, three, four, five
or six players, plus special children's games.
As a special bonus, you'll find the first published rules for "BUCKEYE" ROOK and

|This is a great trick-taking game where you and your partner have to make your bid. There are many variations but I like when the Rook card is the lwo trump. It can be challenging to keep track of how many of each color have been played and what high cardsare still in play. Great fun.
