French Tarot: Overview
French Tarot is a team game that also features "lone fighter" or solo game elements. An individual can play against a team formed by the other three players for the trick. The tables can turn in the next round, as the solo player becomes a part of the team and one of the former team members becomes the solo player.
And a point worth noting: Tarot was mentioned in Italian scripts originating from the 15th century!
Aims of the game
- Take as many tricks as possible to win the game.
- Get as many Oudlers in the tricks won as possible.
- The declarer aims to score as many points as set in the contract. Opponents attempt to prevent the declarer from reaching his/her goal.
