How To Play Online Free - Rook Card Game Rules
Rook-Online is a 4-player bidding and trick-taking partnership card game. If you are put off by the maddeningly complex bidding conventions of bridge, but desire more of a challenge than hearts or spades, then Rook-Online is the game for you.
Rook cards were introduced in the early 20th century for the benefit of members of certain Protestant sects that considered playing cards to be sinful. Parker Brothers filled the void with a game that was played like cards but did not use the standard playing-card deck. Rook has four "suits"--colored red, green, black, yellow--with 14 cards in each suit. Dozens of different games can be played with the Rook deck; Rook-Online.com offers Standard and Tournament ("Kentucky Discard") Rook.
