Card Games: Put Group
This is a very old group of trick taking games. Suits are ignored and the trick is taken by the highest ranking card. If two equally high cards are played by opponents, the trick is tied and belongs to no one. In the basic games of this type, only three cards are dealt. In the modern South American game Truco, it is also possible to score for and bet on combinations of cards held in hand. In the French game Aluette, the hands have been increased in size to nine cards.
