Twenty-eight is an Indian trick-taking card game in which the Jack and the Nine are the highest cards in every suit.

Players and cards[edit]

28 is usually played by four players in fixed partnerships, partners facing each other. 32 cards from a standard 52-card pack are used for play. There are eight cards in each of the usual "French" suits: hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades. The cards in every suit rank from high to low: J-9-A-10-K-Q-8-7. The aim of the game is to win tricks containing valuable cards.
The total number of points in the deck is 28, hence the name of the game. The values of the cards are:

  • Jacks = 3 points each
  • Nines = 2 points each
  • Aces = 1 point each
  • Tens = 1 point each
  • Other cards = (K, Q, 8, 7) no points

Deal and bidding[edit]

Deal and play are counter-clockwise; the cards are shuffled by the dealer and cut by the player to dealer's left. Four cards are then dealt to each player.

Based on these four cards, players bid for the right to choose trumps. Each bid is a number, and the highest bidder undertakes that his or her side will win in tricks at least the number of points bid. The player to dealer's right speaks first, and must bid at least 14 or it can be more. Subsequent players, in counter-clockwise order, may either bid higher or pass. The auction continues once until the player passes and the bid moves on to the next player.

The highest bidder chooses a trump suit on the basis of his or her four cards, and places a card of this suit face down. The card is not shown to the other players, who therefore will not know at first what suit is trump: it remains face down in front of the bidder until at some point during the play someone calls for the trump suit to be exposed.

The dealer then completes the deal, giving four more cards to each player, so that everyone has eight.

The Play[edit]

The play can be divided into two phases: before and after the bidder's face down trump card (also known as 'turup') is exposed.

First phase[edit]

Deal and play are anti-clockwise; the cards are shuffled by the dealer and cut by the player to dealer's left. Four cards are then dealt to each player.

Based on these four cards, players bid for the right to choose trumps. Each bid is a number, and the highest bidder undertakes that his or her side will win in tricks at least the number of points bid. The player to dealer's left speaks first, and subsequent players, in clockwise order, may either bid higher or pass. The minimum bid allowed is 14 and the maximum is 28 (assuming that the point for the last trick is not counted, for 29 bidding starts with 17). If any player bids, the auction continues for as many rounds as necessary until three players pass in succession. The player to dealer's right must bid at least the minimum.

What games can you play with poker cards?

I guess the obvious answer of poker won't do? So besides all the poker variants, hold'em, omaha, stud, draw, etc. poker cards have the sames ranks and suits as general playing cards. Thus virtually any common card game can be played with poker cards.
Poker cards are just like any other cards so you can play any game that you also play with ordinary playing cards like GoFish, bridge, rummy, blackjack, solitaire, and lots more.
