Description:

Sueca is a 4 player-partnership point trick-taking card game. The game is most popular in Portugal, Brazil and Angola. Its closest known relative is the very similar German game Einwerfen.

Instructions:

Players and Cards

The game is played with 32 cards or even 40 cards, or by removing 8s, 9s, 10s from a standard 52 card deck. The rank of the cards in each suit, from highest rank to lowest one, is: Ace, 7, King, Jack, Queen, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.

The game is played clockwise.

The player to the left of the dealer (the one who cut the cards) leads to the first trick. Players must follow suit if they can. A player who has no card of the suit led may play any card. If any cards of the trump suit are played to a trick, the highest trump wins. Otherwise, the trick is won by the highest card of the suit led. The winner of each trick leads to the next.

In Sueca, the aim is to win tricks containing valuable cards. The card values are:

    ace

    .....

    11 points

    seven

    .....

    10 points

    king

    .....

    4 points

    jack

    .....

    3 points

    queen

    .....

    2 points

    6, 5, 4, 3, 2

    .....

    0 points

There are 120 points in the deck altogether.

Scoring

The object of the play is to win tricks containing more than half the card points. The team which takes more than 60 card points scores one game. The first team to score four games win the rubber.

If a team takes 91 or more card points in tricks on one deal, they score two games instead of one.

If they take all the tricks they score four games and thus win the rubber immediately. This is known as "dar uma bandeira" (which literally means to give a flag). Taking 120 points but losing a trick (with no counting cards in it) is not sufficient to dar un bandiera. In this case the winning team would just score 2 games for having more than 90.
