Mindi is a fun trick taking card game hailing from India, where it is quite popular. It is a mind blowing Indian card game. Card games are very popular everywhere. People enjoy them as they just kill boredom.
It is also known as MindiKot, Mendhi Coat, Mindi Multiplayer, Dehla Pakad (means "Collect the tens") !
A slight variation of Mindi is also known as Coat piece. Mindi is considered to be a game for smart people and needs some strategy to win it.
Mindi is designed for four players playing in two partnerships. The game uses a standard 52 card deck. The ranking of the cards in this deck are as follows (from high to low); Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
The player who draws the highest card of all would be designated the first dealer.
The dealer shuffles the cards and deals the hand. He deals out 13 card hands around the table.
Game is split into two modes:
Hide Mode- The player to the dealer’s right selects a card placing it to table face down which will be declared as trump suit for that play.
Cut Mode- Play begins without choosing trump suit when the player is unable to follow the suit then whichever he/she chooses becomes the trump of the deal.
Thus, once a trump suit is designated for the hand, the highest card of the trump suit played to the trick wins the trick. If no trump card has been played to the trick, the highest card of the suit led wins the trick. The winner of each trick leads the first card to the next trick. Each captured trick should be kept in a face down pile of cards, gathered by the winner of the trick.
After all 13 tricks have been played the captured cards are then examined to determine the winner of the hand.
If one partnership manages to capture three or four of the Tens, they win the hand. If the partnership manages to take all 4 Tens, this is called Mendicot. Winning every trick in the hand is called Fifty-Two card Mendicot.
The winner of each hand scores one game point. The first team to score 5 game points is the overall game winner.
