A card game resembling whist.
Note: The trump, if any, is determined by the dealer or his
partner, the value of each trick taken over six being:
for “no trumps”
12, hearts 8, diamonds 6, clubs 4,
spades 2. The opponents of the dealer can, after the
trump is declared, double the value of the tricks, in
which case the dealer or his partner can redouble, and
so on. The dealer plays his partner's hand as a dummy.
The side which first reaches or exceeds 30 points
scored for tricks wins a game; the side which first
wins two games wins a rubber. The total score for any
side is the sum of the points scored for tricks, for
rubbers (each of which counts 100), for honors (which
follow a special schedule of value), and for slam,
little slam, and chicane.
[Webster 1913 Suppl.]
Note: For contract bridge, the scoring system has adopted
different values, with 100 points required for a game.
The penalties for failing to make a contract also vary
with the score thus far achieved by the playing team,
and with the degree, if any, of doubling during the
