Dear Fans of Europe and its Card Games,

if you visit a foreign country you often go to visit old monuments which have already been in place since hundreds or thousands of years. And there are not too many of them.

With the Internet came a lot more games than there are monuments outside in this world and their lifetime is rather short. Traditional card games are s.th. like a forgotten cultural heritage, which people have been playing since hundreds or thousands of years.

Therefore, I would like to introduce some local European Card Games playable with the usual French-style or slightly locally adapted sets of playing cards. Most of them are trick-taking games for 4 players where two people each would form a pair.

Who belongs to whom is either decided by the queen cards, or if somebody has only one heart card on his hand then whoever takes this card would be paired with him. The heart 10 shall be the highest trump card, although the second one is stronger as there are two each of all cards.

Let's have a great tea time together before Christmas eve.
