Games using playing cards exploit the fact that cards are individually identifiable from one side only, so that each player knows only the card Mod Apk they hold and not those held by anyone else. For this reason card games are often characterized as games of chance or "imperfect

Many games that are not generally placed in the family of card games do in fact use cards for some aspect of their gameplay. Similarly, some games that are placed in the card game genre involve a board.

Players don't play against each other, but rather work together as partners trying to win more tricks (a trick consists of the four cards that each player plays in one round) than their opponents. Each person gets 13 cards after the dealer deals the cards clockwise from his left-hand side until everyone has 13 cards. After everyone has looked at their own cards, the auction begins.
