Slobberhannes

Three to six players, though 4 is best.

The Cards

Take a standard deck of 52 cards, and strip all the 6s and down, leaving you with a deck of 32 cards. Cards rank: A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7.

The Deal

Deal all the cards out, one at time, so that each player receives 8 cards.

Objective

To avoid winning the first trick, the last trick, and the trick containing the Queen of Clubs.

The Play

Left of the dealer leads first, and thereafter, the winner of the trick leads to the next. Players must follow suit. The trick is won the highest card of the suit led.

Scoring

One penalty point each is taken for winning the first trick, winning the last trick, and for winning the trick containing the Queen of Clubs. If a player takes all 3 penalties, they take an extra point in addition to the 3 gained through each penalty.

The first to reach a total of 10 is the loser.

Revoke

A "revoke" occurs when a player fails to follow suit to the card led. One penalty point is exacted for each revoke, if it is not corrected before the end of the trick.
