Description

Tricks is more than just a trick-taking card game. In Tricks, each player must build his hand by buying cards from his own deck and from his opponents' decks. But players must spend their money wisely. They must make sure the cards they buy are worth the cost and that they are not helping their opponents too much by buying their cards, because money is worth points at the end of the game.

After players have built their hands, each player must select a card, which establishes how many tricks the player must make and what suit he wants to be trump. The hand is then played out. Players who make their bids exactly score the most points. Players who don't make their bids score far less points. Sounds easy, doesn't it? It isn't.
