GofD: Hearts


Today's Game of the Day is that card classic: Hearts!

Enjoy a classic game of Hearts and watch out for the Queen of Spades! Finish the game with the fewest points possible, or try to Shoot the Moon. Hearts is an "evasion-type" trick-taking card game for four players. Hearts is also known as Black Lady, Chase the Lady, Crubs and Black Maria, though any of these may refer to the Heart-like, but differently-scored, game Black Lady. Hearts is regarded as a member of the Whist family of trick-taking games (which also includes Bridge and Spades), but Hearts is unique among Whist variants in that it is an evasion-type game.
