There is a card game I used to play which in school in the Middle East which I understand if based on a French game called Belote.
Does anyone know of an English set of rules for this game?
The game involves 4 players in two teams, only uses the top 7 cards of each suite (A,K,Q,J,10,9,8,7).
Each turn starts with a bidding process for the top card it's either chosen to be the trump suite or not.
Scoring is different for the Trump suite as it the order precedence of the cards, (J,9,A,10,K,Q,8,7) Vs (A,10,K,Q,J,9,8,7).
Each round consists of a player playing one card into the pile, the team with the highest value card wins that round.
There are also sets of cards like three/four/five in a row or 4 of a kind that are worth bonus points.
I'm looking for a concise set of rules in English for this game, preferably the Arabic variant, if not the French original.
