Thanks for watching how to play the card game Hearts! Here are a few key things to remember:
-You do not want to collect any heart cards unless you can get them all.
-Collecting all of the hearts and the queen of spades is called shooting the moon. You earn zero points for doing this and everyone else earns 26 points.
-A player cannot lead with hearts until hearts have been broken. This happens when someone cannot follow suit, and they play a heart card.
-The queen of spades can be played at any time. She is worth 13 points, and she does not count as a heart during the game.
Here is a fun alternative rule:
– If you shoot the moon, you can choose to give everyone else 26 points, or you can choose to subtract 26 points from your score.
