    What's a trick-taking game? 

    A trick-taking game is a card or tile-based game in which play of a hand centers on a series of finite rounds or units of play, called tricks, which are each evaluated to determine a winner or taker of that trick. 


    In essence: The first player places the first card of the "trick" face up in the middle of all players. The other players each follow with a single card, in the direction of play. When every player has played a card to the trick, the trick is evaluated to determine the winner, who takes the cards (usually the player who played the highest-value card of the suit that was led, unless a trump card was played). 


    Classic examples of other trick-taking games: Euchre, Spades, Pinochle, Hearts, Bridge
