Prefa is the form of Preference played in Greece. As in all forms of this game, a 32-card pack is used and there are three active players. Greek Prefa resembles Russian Preference, rather than the versions played in other parts of Eastern Europe, in that the bidder can contract for more than 6 tricks.

Rules of Prefa can be found in Eric Ball's Card Game Rules PDF. In the January 2021 edition they start on page 32.

Here is the Greek Πρεφαδόρος website, which includes rules, strategy, a forum and the possibility to play Prefa online at
