SPADES TOURNAMENT RULES

Bidding

The bidding is also clockwise and starts from the player on the left of the dealer. There are two options of bidding – see cards or blind bid. If the player chooses the first option, he must bid a number of tricks from 0 to 13, which he expects to win. The combined bidding of the two partners is summed up together to form the team bid. This is the number of tricks the team must win in order to achieve a positive score.

A NIL (0) bid means that the player declares that he will not win any tricks in this round. If he succeeds, he wins 100 points, but if he doesn’t manage to do so, the player receives a penalty of 100 points.

When the bidding starts, each player can choose not to look at his cards and thus make a BLIND NIL bid. This bid can give 200 points, but also cost 200 if the player wins even one trick.

Gameplay

The cards in each suit are ranked as follows: A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. In the spade suit, big joker & little joker trumps the Ace.

The player on the dealer’s left begins the trick. He can play whichever card he chooses, excluding those of the spades suit. The trick continues in a clockwise fashion and the other players must follow the suit, if possible. If not, they may play a random card.

If no spade is played during a trick, it is won by the highest value card of the initially played suit. If cards of the spades suit are played, the trick is won by the highest value spade. The winner in the last trick begins the next one.

A spade card cannot be played until:

a spade has been played to trump another trick;

the leader has no other cards besides spades;

Scoring

If a player wins the exact amount of tricks he has bid, he wins points for his team equal to 10 times his bid.

If a player/team takes more tricks than they bid, they get an additional 1 point for each overtrick (bag). When the team reaches 3 bags over their bid, they receive -100 penalty.

If a team wins fewer tricks than they have originally bid, they lose points equal to 10 times their bid.

If a NIL bet is successful the player gets 100 points, but if it fails he loses 100 points.

A successful BLIND NIL scores 200 points, but an unsuccessful one is penalized by 200.

The team, which reaches 200 points first wins. A team that has -150 points loses.



DOMINOES (BONES) TOURNAMENT RULES

Number of Players: 2-4

Type of Game: Scoring Game

Players: Two, three or four may play the game of Dominoes.

The Shuffle: To begin the dominoes are placed face down and “shuffled.” Players draw one domino. The player drawing the highest double or if no double, the highest domino plays first. Re-shuffle and then begin drawing the first hand.

Drawing: Each player then draws seven dominoes for his hand. The remaining dominoes (the boneyard), if any, are left face down on the table to be drawn later if a player is unable to play from his hand.

Begin Play: The player who drew the highest double or the highest domino plays first, playing any domino he wishes from his had.

Object of the game: Scoring points by laying the dominoes end to end (the touching ends must match: i.e., one’s touch one’s, two’s touch two’s, etc.). If the dots on the exposed ends total any multiple of five the player is awarded that number of points. All sides of the first double (the spinner) may be used one piece to each side and later one to each end. All other doubles are played at right angles to the line and the total points on both ends are counted. Dominoing occurs when one player goes out by playing all of his dominoes. The sum of the spots of all opposing players is computed and added to the dominoing player’s score (rounded to the nearest five). In partnership play the spots of the partner of the one who “DOMINOED” are not counted.

Blocking the Game: If in the course of the game it is impossible for any of the players to play, the game is “Blocked.” The player (or partners) having the least spots in his (or their combined) hand(s) scores the total of the spots in the opponents’ hands (rounded to the nearest five). The score of 250 points is usually considered a game. The first person (or partnership) to score this amount wins the game. Shuffle and begin a new game. The player who won plays first.
