Rules of the game. The deliverer (banker) is determined by lot, then pass in turn. Cost of cards in points: an ace – 1 point or 11 points (decided between players before the start of the game); king – 4 points; lady – 3 points; Jack – 2 points; the rest of the cards in their face value. The deck is carefully shuffled, removes the player to the left of the banker. The banker announces the amount: “There are 10 rubles in the bank”; you can put any amount in the bank. Then each player is dealt one card in a closed form, the banker hands over the last card to himself and opens it, showing everyone. The banker opens the bottom card of the remaining deck and puts it on top of the deck face up. The player who received the card cannot refuse to play, must play the pot, and only then exit the game. The first move belongs to the player to the left of the banker. The player calls the bet he wants to play on this round, but which does not exceed the amount of money that is in the bank. For example, in the bank 10 rubles. The player says: “I’m going for 5 rubles” and asks for one card from the banker. If a player does not have enough points to score 21 points, then he asks for another card. A player who scores 21 points immediately declares this and takes his winnings from the bank. If a player has scored more than 21 points, he is obliged to show his cards and pay the debt to the bank (the player pays doubly for concealing brute force). The banker is the last to declare what he is going on and after that all the players open their cards. The player who scores the most points wins. If the number of points is the same, then the banker wins. The player who lost, puts his loss in the bank and the game continues. After each player has played the cards, the banker lays on top of the deck face down, then takes a card from below and continues the game with the next player. If the bank is broken by someone from the players, then the cards for banking are transferred to the next player on the left.
There is a rule that players play at their discretion, for example, getting a card into the dark. If a player has scored 17 points and there are few of them to win, he asks the banker for one card, but does not look at it. In this case, if the player is overkill, then he lost, but not doubly. For brute force points in the dark player is not fined.
The bank is going to knock. A knock is the amount of money three times the rate of the banker. In our case, the banker scored 30 rubles and announced a knock. When knocking, each player can declare any amount of money (not higher than the bank), if he wins, he takes, if he loses, he adds. After the end of the last round with a knock, the banker picks up all the money that is left for himself or “flies over”. But in any case, the banker does not lose more than 30 rubles.
