Sixty-Six – Card Game Rules

The PackThe common 52-card pack is stripped of all cards except the A, K, Q, J, ten, and 9 of each and every suit, making a complete of 24 cards.
Rank of CardsA (higher), 10, K, Q, J, 9.
The DealDeal six cards each and every, three at a time, beginning with your opponent. The thirteenth card is turned up for trump and laid beside undealt cards, which grow to be the stock.
Object of the GameThe goal is to score 66 points as follows:
Marriage in trumps (K, Q announced) forty
Marriage in any other suit (K, Q announced) 20
Every ace (taken in on tricks) eleven
Each ten (taken in on tricks) ten
Each king (taken in on tricks) 4
Every queen (taken in on tricks) 3
Every single jack (taken in on tricks) 2
Winning last trick ten
The PlayThe non-dealer prospects very first. No a single is obligated to follow 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 following trick.
Both player holding the nine of trumps may exchange it for a higher trump card at any time, supplied they have previously won a trick, except if the nine is the last card in the stock. A “marriage” is announced by displaying the appropriate king and queen and foremost a single of individuals cards. Marriages may be announced only when one of the two cards is played – unless of course a player by displaying a marriage can make his score 66 or far more.
The non-dealer may possibly announce a marriage on their very first lead and score it following he wins a trick.
After the stock is exhausted or closed, the non-leader on every single trick have to comply with suit if feasible. Marriages may possibly even now be scored.
ClosingEither player may close (end the game), when they have the lead, either prior to or soon after drawing, by turning down the trump card. Thereafter, no cards are drawn, and the final trick does not score 10 points.
If both player announces for the duration of perform that their score is 66 or more, the play instantly stops and the game is “closed.
How to Keep ScoreThe player who 1st reaches 66 scores 1 game stage. If he reaches 66 prior to the opponent will get 33 (a “schneider”), he scores 2 game points if prior to the opponent will get a trick (a “schwarz”), he scores 3 game points. If neither player scores 66, or every single has scored 66 or far more without having announcing it, no one scores in that hand and one game stage is added to the score of the winner of the subsequent hand.
If a player “closing” gets 66 or much 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 just before his opponent has taken a trick, but fails to score 66, the opponent scores 3 factors.
The player who scores 7 game points 1st, wins.
