Are you one of those fanatic card lovers who would always prefer playing cards to reading a good book and even worse- watching a relaxing movie? Well, if so, right on the spot you are. Hearts is a very old game and it remains popular.
The Objective of the game is that the players don't want to end up with tricks containing hearts or the queen of spades, but they do want to end up with the jack of diamonds. Hearts is to have the least number of points when the game ends.
The game of hearts is also popularly called as Black Queen, The Dirty, Dark Lady, Slippery Anne, Chase the Lady, Black Maria and Crubs.
The 18th-century ancestor of Hearts was called Reverse because in this card game you want to lose certain tricks rather than win them.
Each heart gives one penalty point. There is also one special card, the Queen of spades, which gives 13 penalty points.
The first trick is led by the player to the left of the dealer. Players must follow suit; that is, play a card of the same suit as the lead card, if they are able. If they are not able to do so, they can play any card including a penalty Heart or the Queen of Spades.
The trick and any penalty points it contains are won by the player who played the highest-value card of the suit that was led. That player then becomes the lead player for the next trick, and play continues until all players have exhausted their hands.
Stick your opponents with as many hearts as possible and try to avoid the hearts suit. Beware of the Queen of Spades.
Even if you've never played Hearts before, give it a try. You might like it!
