Rules of the game. A popular intellectual card game in Hungary, outside of which very few people know. There are electronic versions of this game. Ulti is a game for three players. A deck of 32 cards is used. A deck of cards is German, where the suits are indicated as follows: hearts are hearts, bells are tambourines, acorns are clubs, leaves are peaks. You can play the usual French deck, which is played in Russia. The first deliverer in the game is determined randomly, each player takes one card from the deck and the one who took the youngest card becomes the first deliverer. In the following games, the players deal with cards in turn. The order of players is counterclockwise. The deck is carefully shuffled by the deliverer and 10 cards are dealt to each player, and the deliverer deals himself 12 cards. The game consists of three stages: trading, drawing and scoring. First, trade begins.
Trade. Starting with the deliverer, who puts two any of his cards in the center of the table in a closed form, this is the buy-in, and announces the game he offers (contract). Each next player either says “pass” and misses a move in trading or is being traded, while taking two buy-in cards, puts his two in his place and announces his game. The player who offers the most senior contract becomes a playmaker (soloist) and plays this contract against two other players. The soloist calls the trump suit, and can say that the game will be without trumps, then the rally takes place without the trump suit. If the game is declared “hearts”, then the hearts become the trump suit. It should be noted that when playing with a trump or without a trump suit, the precedence of cards is different. Players declare the following types of contracts that are listed in the table from junior to senior.
