    It is played by three persons.

    First shorten the pack of 52 to 30. Keep cards in all four suits that are eight and above ( Ace ranks higher than the king), This gives you 28 cards. Add to these two sevens , of spade and heart. Now you have thirty cards. The deal is by rotation.

    The cards are to distributed in three instalments: 5, 3 and 2.The person who is dealt first has to name the trump suit from his five cards. He has to make five tricks in all; the dealer two; and the third player three.

    Score tricks like in bridge or coat-piece .

    If you cannot decide which trump to call on the basis of the first five cards, , you have an option.You can randomly uncover a subsequent card without seeing it. That becomes your trump.

    It may happen that some player(s) make more tricks , or less, than they were supposed to make. This situation influences the next deal

    Suppose you were short of tricks by one. In the next deal , you ask the surplus scorer to pull a blind card out of your ten. If he is lucky he may get from you an ace or a trump. He will give you a card in return, but he cannot return the card he took from you. In addition, he must retain at least two cards of the same suit which he gives you.( You can check it during the game.) Ditto for each surplus/deficit trick.

    There can be a celebratory bonus if you score all ten tricks, especially if some one else called the trumps!!

    Cards: 8 onwards for all suits + heart7 + Spade 7 = 30 in all

    Basic game: its like Bridge, just that there are 3 players instead of four and all play individually. There are a total of 3+2+5 = 10 tricks. On each trick, the highest of the led suit wins unless it is trumped.


    1) each player becomes the dealer one by one

    2) the dealer has to make 2 tricks, the next person 5 (and he gets to choose the Trump), and the third 3.

    3) How to deal the cards- first distribute a set of 5 cards to each. The person next to the dealer looks at his cards and chooses a trump suit. Then the cards are dealt in sets of 3 and two. If the player choosing the trump does not like his first 5 cards, he may decide to ask the next set of 3 cards to be shown to all and the suit with the highest card in those 3 becomes the trump.

    4) First lead is by the player setting the trump, subsequent ones are by the one who wins the trick

    5) In the end if someone makes more than what is required of him (like the dealer makes 4 instead of 2). Then he is allowed to 'pick' a card each for the extra tricks in the next round. i.e. if p1 (dealer) makes 4 and p2 makes 2 (instead of 3) and p3 makes 4 (instead of 5), then p1 has the option of pulling one card each from the cards of p2 and p3 in the next round. And in return he can give back any of his unwanted (small) cards as long as he can show 2 cards of the same suit.
