The cards are Hungarian cards and the "Seven" and "Eight" cards are removed, leaving in total of 24 cards. You can play against 3 different computer players. Each player has a difficulty level. The player who reaches first 15 points will win the party. In case of equality the game will continue until one player make more or less points than the other.
There are in total 4 different card types: HEART, LEAF, ACORNS and BELLS. Each card type has 6 cards with different values.
★ When the game is started, the deck of cards are shuffled and are distributed among the players. Each player receives 8 cards and 8 cards remains on the table. Each player evaluates their cards for the auction. The player who's turn must make a bid between 1 - 4. If he thinks that his cards doesn't worth 1 point, then he can bid: "PASS" and will give the bid possibility for the opponent player. If the player makes a bid between 1 - 4, the opponent player can make a greater bid and will win the auction. The maximum bid is 4 and the players can't say a greater number. The player who "wins" (by the highest bid) the auction can place the first card. When the first card is placed it will define the tromf (master) card type. This card type is the most powerful within the current game and can take any card with other types. In case of the same tromf cards are placed on the table, then the value of the card is evaluated. The card with the greatest value will win. When there are no more cards left, each player will calculate their points and will result the end of the game. The points are calculated by each player by the sum of their collected cards and announcements. Finally the total sum is divided by 33 to get the number of points. If the player who won the auction made less points than his bid, then he will lose the points. Each accumulated point is added to the player's existing points.
