Rules: first team to 300 wins. High cards are big joker , little joker Ace of Spades and so on. The Jokers will be identified by The game's ref. Big joker does not pull your opponent's highest spade. If you under bid, You will receive one sandbag for each book more than what you bid. Once your team has acquired 10 bags, your team will go back 100 points.
Reneging is a big no-no. If you suspect an opponent has reneged, Gain the attention of the ref explain your suspicion and point out the book that you suspect your opponent of reneging.
If your opponent has indeed reneged, your opponents will lose three books. If your opponent did not renege your team will lose 50 points.
If any team is set three times within the game they are automatic losers. If there is a 300 point deficit at any point during the game prior to any team reaching 300 points, the game is over.
