Card Games: Sedma Group

I classify these games as part of the Ace-Ten group of point-trick games because there are generally 10 points each for the aces and tens (plus 10 for the last trick). However, the mechanics of play are rather different from most trick-taking games - the suits are ignored and a card can only be beaten by another card of equal rank, or a wild card. Sevens are often wild - hence the name of the group (sedma is Czech for seven, and the name of the best known game of the group). Moreover, a trick does not necessarily end when each player has played one card, but in some circumstances can be continued for further rounds.
