Cassino, also known as Casino, is an Italian fishing card game for two, three, four (possibly in two partnerships), or even theoretically five players. It is the only one to have penetrated the English-speaking world, via Italian immigrants to America. First recorded in 1797, it seems to have been heavily elaborated in 19th-century American practice. It is mostly played by two with a standard deck of playing cards, the object of the game being to score 21 points by fishing up cards displayed on the table. It is very similar to and probably descended from the Italian game Scopa.

The deal[edit]

The dealer deals four cards to each player and four cards face up in the center. Traditionally, the deal is in twos: two cards at a time to each player. The remainder of the deck is temporarily put aside. After everyone has played their four cards, another hand of four cards is dealt to each player from the remaining cards (two at a time), but no more cards are dealt to the table after the first deal. After these cards have been played there is another deal, and this continues until all 52 cards have been dealt. The dealer announces "cards" when dealing the last cards. After the last cards have been played, and the hand scored, the deal passes to the left for the next round.

The play[edit]

Beginning with the player to the dealer's left, each player plays one card at a time, performing one (or more) of the following actions:

  • Trailing: Any card may be discarded face up to the table.
  • Pairing: Any card may be used to take one or more cards of the same number, or a build with the same value, that is face up on the table.
  • Combining: A number card may be used to take two or more cards whose pips total the number on the card being used to take them. For example, a player may take a 3 and a 6 with a 9, or may take a 2, 4, and 4 with a 10.
  • Building: Cards may be built upon in one of two ways (see ).

Players may perform two of the above actions only when pairing and combining simultaneously; e.g. a player may take a 3, a 4 and a 7 with his own seven.

Players with builds on the table are limited in the actions they are permitted to make. This is described in more detail below.
