Since 1906, Rook has entertained millions and millions of card game lovers and now can be played online. It's much easier to play than Bridge, more fun than Pinochle, and more varied than Hearts. Rook is played online with a deck of 56 numerical cards and the unique Rook bird card.
The game is played by dealing out the entire deck and placing the "Rook" in the center of the table. Each card in the deck is assigned a point value. Players and teams bid to see how many points they think they will accumulate by the end of the hand. Win tricks to pick up cards and rack up the points. Just be sure to bid wisely--not making your bid can give your opponent a big advantage. The game ends when a certain amount of points have been accumulated.
Number Of Players: 1 to 6
