There are four players. Thirteen cards are dealt to each player from a standard 52-card pack.

The first person to 400 points wins. Do not be surprised if many people find themselves constantly in negative numbers. [Indeed, unless there is a Nillo, the total points available in each hand is negative: there are 140 negative points for hearts, but at most 120 positive points: 30 for aces and 90 for tricks, since at least four tricks contain hearts. therefore there is a possibility that the game will go on indefinitely. Perhaps a limit should be set on negative points - for example that a player whose score is -400 or lower loses the game.]
