How to play

At the beginning of each round, 13 cards are distributed to each player in three rounds where 5 cards are distributed in first round and 4 cards each in two following rounds. Trump selection happens during game as previously described.

Trump

Trump is not decided in the beginning of the game but a trump is decided is during the game and it could be anyone from the four players who can declare the trump. Suppose player A and C are in team X and B and D are in team Y. Now during the game suppose player A plays a card from hearts and player B doesn’t have a card from hearts, player B will play a card from some other suit and whatever suit player B plays, becomes the trump for that game.
