Example text

In games such as Whist, you select the boss suit at random. In other games, such as Euchre, the initial suit is random, but the players have a chance to select another suit if they want to. And in some games, such as Bridge, the choice is entirely up to the players playing individually or acting in a partnership. So, what do trumps do, besides build real estate and host reality television? Well, if you have no cards in the suit led, you can put a trump on the lead (or trump it). This action is also called ruffing the trick.

Discarding implies that you’re letting go a card in a plain, non-trump suit rather than trumping. Say your hand consists solely of clubs, diamonds, and hearts, and you’re playing out a hand where hearts are trump: ߜ If another player leads a club and you play a diamond or a heart on the lead, you revoke. ߜ If a player leads a spade and you play a heart, you trump the spade. ߜ If you play a diamond on the lead of a spade, you discard. Playing out of turn For one reason or another, players occasionally lose track of who won the previous trick.

When you use all the cards in a pile, you create a space. You can move any king, or pile headed by a king — but only one headed by a king — into the space, and then you turn another face-down card over on the pile from which you moved the king pile. Whenever you turn up an ace in the tableau (or in the stock), move that card to the foundation and start a new foundation pile. You may then take any top card from the tableau and move it onto the foundation, where appropriate. For example, after you put the ࡗA in the foundation, you can take the ࡗ2 when it becomes available to start building up the diamonds.
