Coteccio v.1.2.0


This is a negative point trick game from Italy; normally whoever takes the most points in tricks loses, but if one player takes all the tricks, that player wins. A Italian suited 40 card pack is used (Triestine regional pattern). 5 cards are dealt to each player. Each player begins with four lives. Normally at the end of a hand the player whose tricks contain most card points (including 6 extra for whoever took the last trick) loses one life. Players that lost all their lives drop out the game. The winner is the last player with lives. If two or more players tie for most points they each lose a life. Value of Cards: Ace = 6, Re = 5, Caval = 4, Fante = 3, other cards = 0.
