Play the fun card game from the comfort of your computer.

The goal of the game is to make tricks in order to get the lowest score possible. You don't want to have the Queen of Spades as this will mean you end up losing the game since it is worth the highest number of points. You also want to avoid cards with any hearts.

Instructions of the game are fairly easy to understand, but it helps if you know a bit about the game as the rounds can go pretty quickly. There are three other people who will play with you, or you can choose to play against the computer. If you aren't that good at the game, then it's best to play against people as the computer will end up beating you until you understand how to make tricks.

You can change the look of the cards, but you can't really do anything about the background as it looks like a card table. Change the difficulty levels from easy to the most difficult, but if you haven't played, then start with the easiest level possible until you get a grasp on how to make tricks. There are two different modes of playing the game. Each mode features rules that are a bit different, some that seem to make no sense at all. However, it's a fun game to play that can be addictive if you like cards. Hints are given if you get stuck. This is a game that involves strategy as you have to know which card you should play first and which cards you should play in each round, looking ahead to the cards that the opponents have to use.
