Hearts Card Online Game

Hearts is a traditional trick-taking game for a squad of four. Hearts’ goal is to collect as few hearts as possible. You get one penalty point for each heart you collect. There’s also the Queen of Spades, which is a unique card. It penalizes you with 13 points! This is a game where a low score is preferred over a high one.

You choose three cards to pass to one of your opponents when the game begins. The opponent to whom you pass varies. You begin by passing to the opponent on your left, then to the opponent on your right in the next game, then across the table in the third game, in the fourth game, nobody passing the cards.

Each turn begins with one player leading or playing a single card. The trick’s suit is determined by the suit of that card.

After then, each of the other players has a turn playing a card. The same suit as the first card must be played if the player has one. They can play one of their other cards if they don’t. After four cards have been dealt, the player who dealt the highest-ranking card in the initial suit gets the trick, which means he takes the four cards on the table and begins the following turn. The penalty score is increased by any penalty cards in the trick. As a result, you should avoid any tricks with hearts or the queen of spades.

On the opening hand, the player who holds the two of clubs at the start of the game must lead with the two of clubs.
