Cards are taken from the stock one by one, and placed on one of four tableau piles, or directly to a foundation.
Cards or blocks of cards maybe be moved between piles to form sequences going down in value, with no regard to suit (though it is advisable to build them in suit wherever possible).
Cards in the tableau may be built down in value without regard to suit, but only groups of cards built down in suit may be moved as a sequence.

German cards such as the aforesaid ones and hunting decks were probably used up to the 17th century, when they died out, while the popularity of the classic tarot kept growing.
The German suit of Acorns, also adopted in Switzerland, was probably influenced by the latter interpretation, as the tip of the fruit recalls the cudgel's shaft, while the acorn's cup is consistent with the projecting branches.

A minion may only take a suit action if the minion is occupying a card which displays the appropriate suit, or if the appropriate suit card is played from the player's hand and then discarded.

The minion using the Gate card moves to any territory on the board which is of the same suit as the territory that the minion currently occupies.

 Rules of card games: Tarocchi Bolognesi: Ottocento
He is the lowest trump, and is valuable as a counting card, as one of the tarocchi, and for his role in sequences.
Remember that many cards have some potential value, either in themselves or in combinations: usually a pip card from a suit is chosen to give in exchange, or a low numbered trump can be given once the trump sequence is known to be stopped (see Sequences).
With 10 cards between 4 players it is most common for the first round of a side suit not to be trumped (except possibly by dealer, who made a discard), and for the second round of a suit to be trumped by at most one player, but neither of these is certain!

With four players, everyone is guaranteed fresh cards if they draw replacements; with more, it may be necessary to use previously-discarded ones, so five or six players is considered the practical limit of single-decked Bouré.
They flip their own fifth card--the last dealt--and the suit of that card is considered trumps.

 Spades - The Game
Once 2 cards have been led in a suit, avoid at all costs leading a card lower than the highest card remaining in a suit that your partner may still have.
Leading a medium-low card (6, 7, 8) with the Nil to your left is most effective, since it generally forces the Nil player to go lower, usually leaving him with higher cards in his hand.
The goal is to play your high cards and trump suit in such a way that will not let the person who bid Nil to play under them, and also to force the opponent opposite the Nil to play his higher cards unecessarily.

 Andy's Playing Cards - The Tarot And Other Early Cards - page V - the Mamlûk cards
What appears to be a crucial detail for the relation with southern European cards is not only the similarity of their signs, but the way the pips of the long suits (Swords and Sticks) are arranged, crossing each other, with the intersecting points highlighted by means of colour changes and additional details.
At the top of the court cards, in a blue rectangle very similar to the bottom one, is a saying or aphorism (a different one is found in each card).
Furthermore, these cards are particularly ornate, comparable to the Italian princely decks of the same age, and their use was almost certainly restricted to high officers, or to members of the nobility, people who would have never played for money.

 Euchre rules
Besides the six cards in the trump suit (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace), there is another card that is considered part of the trump suit: the other Jack of the same color.
The cards in the trump suit are ranked as follows (from highest to lowest) :Jack (right bower), Jack of same color (left bower), Ace, King, Queen, 10, 9.
Also, make sure you have a lot of cards in the trump suit before calling trump- not just one or two (unless maybe those two are the cards that will be the two bowers) You should expect your partner to have some trump suit cards-but it’s not a sure bet.

 Game Report: Bryncir
Trick is taken by highest card; Brusten was unclear about whether one had to follow suit to take the trick, but we assumed so.
The best strategy, unsurprisingly, seemed to be to hold onto valuable cards for as long as you could stand, and maintain as much suit breadth as possible.
The result was that I still had "power cards" late in the game, in a variety of suits, so I wound up losing few points, taking most tricks, and earning massive points from other players who could not follow suit.

 Red suit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The red suits are hearts and diamonds, because most Anglo-American playing cards print these suit symbols in red.
There is nothing special about these two suits as a combination in contract bridge, but it is often convenient to be able to talk about suit combinations in this way.

 EN World - Morrus' D&D / d20 News & Reviews Site - Suit Cards
In general, I tried to set up the suit cards so that for the most part, the number of cards you have determines "crunchy" things and the cards themselves are more RP things.
Reasoning: crunchy stuff affects game balance and it is easier to control that through of cards a player has since if you have a lot of one suit you cannot have a lot of any other suit.
Cards themselves will provide portfolio benefits, such as having 3 allies and one foe insteaed of 2 and 2, or changing the alignment of one portfolio character, or reduced XP penalty for playing both your prime and backup PC, etc.

 Antimail : Puzzle: what is the next card?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In fact, after receiving a card from Dianne, the guardian might send to John another (almost identical) card of the same type, to make sure that she didn't use the card to send additional clues to John.
By choosing which 4 cards to send you communicate either P or not P. That tells you whether the "extra bit" is a 0 (not P) or a 1 (P).
So now that we've established that the two cards are at MOST 6 apart (allowing a wrap around from K-A-2), we just need to make sure we have a standard method for John and Dianne to number their permutations, so they get the same count.

Partner will also be using bids to tell us about the number of points she holds (and something about what suits she likes and dislikes.) Thus, we’ll KNOW how many points WE hold, and will have a fairly good idea of how many points partner holds after some bidding.
Because major suit games and no trump games require fewer tricks, they can usually be made with only 26 points total between the hands.
Usually, no trump contracts require that we can control all the suits (since we can’t trump a suit that opponents lead.) Playing the hand in trumps suits can be a little easier, if we have enough trumps between our two hands.
