What is Rook about?

Rook has a specially designed 57-card deck where there are four suits in this deck: red, green, black, and yellow, and the numbers on the cards range from 1 to 14. The Rook card, with the picture of a bird, is a high-point card.

Rook involves bidding and trick-taking. The object of the game is to use your cards in your hand to score as many points as possible.

Cards are accordingly:

  • 5 = 5 points
  • King, 10, and 14 = 10 points
  • Ace = 15 points
  • Rook = 20 points (counts as extra trump)
  • Winning the last “trick” = 20 points

On each hand, you can score up to 200 points. Players decide beforehand how many points they would like to play towards. It is common to play to 1,000 points.

Partners sit across from each other and attempt to bid the minimum value of points a player and their partner will score by end of the game.

Players and their partners must be careful not to bid too high, as they will lose if they go over the total amount scored. When bidding, players can’t see their partner’s hand, and the bid is based on both the player and partner’s hands. 

When the bidding is over, the winner of the bid takes the card from the center and returns a card from his hand face-down in front of him or her. The winner can return the original card that he or she pulled from the center if it is not useful to his or her hand. The winner and his or her partner keep any points that this dropped card is worth.
