Swoop Card Game
3 – 8 Players
3 decks of cards preferably of different colors
Pen and paper for score keeping
Object of the game: To be the first to get rid of all 19 of your cards for each round and to have the lowest score at the end of the game. You decide how long a game is. We usually say we will play until someone reaches 500 points. At which point the person with the lowest score wins. You could also put a time limit on the game, that’s up to you.
Scoring is as follows:
Aces count as one.
Face cards are 10.
Other cards are counted at face value.
TENS and JOKERS are SWOOP cards and are worth 50 points each.
Place the 3 decks of cards in the center of the table face down. Mix the decks together with your hands. Each player selects 19 cards from the pile and keeps them face down.
Place 4 of your cards face down and unseen in front of you. Place 4 more cards face up, each on top of the 4 facedown cards.
Then sort your remaining 11 cards in numerical order for ease of play.
Have each player select a card from the pile to see who goes first. High card goes first.
Starting player chooses which cards he wants to discard, usually with his highest cards. He may discard as many of a denomination as he wants. Example: 3 Kings.
The next player must play at least one more Kings or any number lower than kings. For example if you have 4 or more of a denomination you can discard them all and call that a swoop. Anytime you make a swoop you get to play again.
As soon as a denomination reaches 4 of a kind or more, the player says “swoop” and the discarded pile is swooped to the out of play pile. That same player then gets to choose the next card(s) he wants to play from either his hand or his cards on the table in front of him.
When it’s his turn, a player may use a TEN or JOKER to swoop the cards from the table and then play whatever denomination he chooses.
The facedown cards can only be played after a swoop or if the player wishes to gamble that the facedown card might be lower than the one already played.
If a player is forced to play and uses a card that is bigger than what is exposed, he must pick up all the cards in the discard pile and play moves to the next player. If a player uses a facedown card to start, he may also play any matching cards from his hand.
Play continues until someone discards all their cards and goes out. All other players must add up their points and the score keeper keeps track of everyone’s points.
Start the next round with the winner going first.
