Court Piece, also known as Rung is the most played & favorite card game of Pakistan & India. It’s a four player card game which enables the players to enhance their mathematical calculation & run-time decision making capabilities by making them to win only if they’ve demonstrated practical skills.
The current Court Piece game is available as a Android game with option of single & four player game. During the game, eldest hand makes trumps after the first five cards have been dealt, and trick-play is typically stopped after one party has won seven tricks. A special bonus is awarded if one party wins the first seven tricks, or even all tricks. The game is played by four players in two teams.
The game is played with a full standard deck of 52 cards by four players in fixed partnerships, sitting crosswise. Cards are dealt in batches of 5 – 4 – 4
The player who sits after the dealer in the direction of play (which is typically counter-clockwise) is known as trump-caller. Having received the first five cards, this player announces the trump suit (usually called rang of the game). The other players are not allowed to look at their cards before the trump suit has been announced. The trump-caller leads to the first trick. In trick-play the normal whist rules apply: Players must follow suit if possible, and the highest trump, or the highest card of the suit led, takes the trick. The winner of a trick leads to the next trick.
The party that wins seven or more tricks wins the hand and will usually stop the game at this point. Winning seven tricks in one go is a special achievement known as kot or kap. Continuing afterwards and winning all tricks is a rare achievement known as a bavney or baunie. The Under-ten rule, if the trump-caller not holding any face card may call for re-deal.
The first trump-caller (and by implication the first dealer) is determined at random. The role of the trump-caller only passes on to the next player if the trump-caller's party did not win the hand.
