The PlayThe non-dealer prospects 1st. No one particular is obligated to comply with suit. The higher card of the suit led, or a trump played to a plain-suit lead, wins the trick. The winner of the trick draws the best card of the stock (the opponent taking the following card), and leads for the next trick.
Either player holding the 9 of trumps may possibly exchange it for a higher trump card at any time, supplied they have previously won a trick, unless of course the nine is the last card in the stock. A “marriage” is announced by exhibiting the proper king and queen and leading a single of individuals cards. Marriages may possibly be announced only when one of the two cards is played – unless a player by displaying a marriage tends to make his score 66 or more.
The non-dealer may announce a marriage on their 1st lead and score it soon after he wins a trick.
Right after the stock is exhausted or closed, the non-leader on every single trick have to stick to suit if feasible. Marriages might nevertheless be scored.
ClosingEither player might near (finish the game), when they have the lead, either ahead of or after drawing, by turning down the trump card. Thereafter, no cards are drawn, and the final trick does not score 10 points.
If either player announces for the duration of play that their score is 66 or far more, the perform instantly stops and the game is “closed.
How to Hold ScoreThe player who 1st reaches 66 scores 1 game level. If he reaches 66 prior to the opponent will get 33 (a “schneider”), he scores two game factors if prior to the opponent will get a trick (a “schwarz”), he scores three game factors. If neither player scores 66, or every has scored 66 or more without announcing it, no 1 scores in that hand and 1 game stage is additional to the score of the winner of the following hand.
If a player “closing” gets 66 or far more, he scores the exact same as if the game had been played out. If the player fails, the opponent scores two points. If a player closes ahead of his opponent has taken a trick, but fails to score 66, the opponent scores three factors.
The player who scores 7 game factors very first, wins.
