  1. Does the suit always stay as the first card flipped up?

  2. What if you can't follow suit in endgame, do you lose the trick?

  3. The Keeping Scores is abit confusing. Say theres 6 tricks on p1 and 7 tricks on p2, how do you get the score from there or even how you get 15?

  4. You confuseme at the end.why player 2 won clubs was trump. For that round?

  5. After watching this video a few times and reading some comments I understood how to play this game

  6. With this coronavirus spreading families across the world are playing card game like never before.

  7. Your videos are a life saver for me and my roommate here in Spain during covid. Thanks

  8. Can the trump cards be used during first stage? Or the trump card will be effective in the second stage of the game only?

  9. You need to go slower in explaining Trump values, cannot get my head around strategy of game, if there is any strategy to it. Very aggravating, no fun, only frustration on who collects Trump cards when you win. I played Saturday, did not collect any cards!

  10. Thank you so much! You’re a life saver during this lockdown.

  11. This video is sponsored by Quarantine 2020.

  12. Do you always have to follow suit, or can you play a trump card instead?

  13. I thought that if the player plays a card with the trump suite then they win over the non trump suite. im confused.

  14. how come at the end that other deck of cards was missing? where did it go?

  15. Im here because I was a episode of maverick and he mentioned this game lmao not because of this dag blame Corina virus

  16. i needed my characters to play some obscure card game while avoiding discussing their emotions in the scene i was writing. this video was a livesaver

  17. I’m learning so many card games but can’t play

  18. What if I don't have the same suit that my partner placed? Do I put any number and suit from my choice? Like if player two puts a 9 of hearts and I don't have any hearts what do I do.? And another question, if neither the diamonds or the hearts are the Trump suited card. So let's say that I place a 9 heart and player 2 places 9 diamond who wins it?
    Plz answer. And whoever did answer me, I am very thankful

  19. I was never as good as Hornblower at Whist. . . always losing the rubber near the end.

  20. Your videos are soooooo amazing love the way you explain. Also in this game is the trump card in the start of the game same for the rest of the game or it changes every time ???

  21. you made this so much harder and teaching the wrong way.. wow why do people make it this hard

  22. I could not understand the objective of this game. Too hard.

  23. Thank you! Very nicely done. (If you went just a tiny bit slower I wouldn’t complain.)

  24. Great video thanks!! Quick question – if a player has neither a trump card or the suite card – do they place any card? Or….

  25. I learned this game as "German whist". A great game!

  26. At the 3:15 mark player 2 plays a 3 and player 1 plays an 8. Since 8 is higher than 3, why did player 2 win the trick?

  27. There are No "vacation rentals by owners" every time i have booked its been just another lame real estate company pawning off their cheap properties

  28. so the trumps only start to pay off in the second stage when you cannot follow suit anymore or did i get anything wrong?

  29. I don’t quite understand trump suited cards, like i have some questions, if you grab 5 diamonds which is trump suit will it make other diamonds you have trump card too? And another question is will they remain trump card even for stage 2?

  30. Hi I have a question. When the card flipped is undesirable, and the player who gets to play first plays, let’s say a diamond but player 2 doesn’t have any diamonds. Player one wants to lose but so does player 2. Does 2 have to play a trump card to win? Even if they do not want to win? Thanks for your help!

  31. This seems like the game War just with a few extra steps.

  32. Can you lead with the trump suit in the first stage or do you lead off with another suit?

  33. the only trick "I" need is understanding how to play the game, lol

  34. Who or what decides if the flipped up card is desireable or not? Shouldn't they all be desireable? Shouldn't you want to win every trick?
