|This is our family favorite. Every time Grandpa comes for a visit, we get out the Rook cards. Though we have our own version, we stick fairly closely to the original rules. Plays 3 to 4 with one deck or up to 8 with two decks. A lot like the popular card game of Spades but different in that there are four colors and trump is made by the highest bidder. 120 points are possible in one deck, 240 with two. The Rook card is worth 20 points alone and is the highest trump when playing with one deck but the lowest when playing with two. The highest bidder takes the middle or "pot" or "kitty" and tries to make their hand stronger. Partners play "counters" to help their team win the round. If you do not make your bid, you go negative that same number. Example: you bid 65, you only make 60, you go negative the whole 65. VERY FUN! EASY to learn. VERY fun to make your own rules!
|This is a fun card game for 4 players if you like strategy and trick-taking games. It is one of our most favorite card games.
