How To Play

Hearts is a trick-taking game in which the object is to avoid winning tricks containing hearts; the queen of spades is even more to be avoided.

The first card played in the first trick is the two of clubs. Play continues clockwise until everyone has played a card. The highest ranked card in the initially lead suit wins the trick.

You may lead a heart at the beginning of a round only if you have only hearts in your hand or if hearts have been broken. Hearts are broken when anyone plays a heart when they cannot follow suit.

When a player takes all the heart cards and the queen of spades, this is know as shooting the moon. The player's score for that hand is 0 and 26 points are added to the scores of the other players. At the end of the game, the player with the lowest score wins.
