Aim for 501 points and the trophies! This is a trick-taking game played by 4 players, using 32 cards with all 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 cards removed from a deck of standard playing cards. Two players sitting opposite to each other are teammates such that 2 partnerships are formed. The goal of the game is to score 501 points before the other team does so by winning the tricks. At the start of the game, a player is randomly selected to be the dealer, while the player on the right of the dealer will become the dealer in the next round. Each player gets 3 cards and then another 2 cards. When every player has 5 cards, a face-up card will be placed in the middle of the table by the dealer. The player on the right of the dealer can choose if he takes the suit of the card as the trump and becomes the taker. He can also choose to pass, so that the next player gets the chance to accept the card as the trump or to pass as well. If everyone passes during the first round, the player on the right of the dealer can choose any suit except the suit of the card on the table as the trump, or he can pass again. If he passes, the next player gets to choose and so on. As soon as a player chooses a trump, the bidding phase will end. If all players pass in the second round, the game will be forfeited. The player on the left of the dealer will become the dealer, and cards will be redistributed.

During the bidding phase, the player who has chosen the trump must take the card on the table regardless of the suit and he will be dealt 2 extra cards. Each of the remaining players will be dealt 3 extra cards. After that, the dealer will lead the first trick by playing any card. The suit of the card he played will become the leading suit of the current trick, and the other players must play cards of the same suit if they can. If a player does not have cards of the leading suit he must play a trump, unless his teammate is the current winner of the trick; if the player does not have a trump, he can play
