Card games in Bangladesh

The card game Twenty-Nine is popular in Bangladesh as well as Northern India.

Call Bridge or Call Break is a four-player game similar to the American game Spades, but played without partners.

Getaway (also known as Bhabhi) is a game played in Bangladesh and the Pubjab, in which the objective is to get rid of cards.

Rang or Rung or Trumps - a whist-like plain-trick game for four players in fixed partnerships, in which a player chooses trumps on the basis of the first five cards dealt.

Teen Patti (Three Cards) - a gambling game similar to the British game Three Card Brag.

Hazari (1000) is a partition game for 4 players in which 13-card hands are divided into groups of 3, 3, 3 and 4.

I would be grateful for any information about other card games played in Bangladesh.
