The description of new sueca Portuguese
the best game card sueca .The game is normally played by 4 players. , which compete to take more points than the other team by winning tricks containing valuable cards. Sueca is played with 40 cards by removing 8s, 9s, and 10s, from a standard 52 card deck. The ranks of the cards, in order from highest to lowest, is: Ace, 7, King, Jack, Queen, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. The entire deck is distributed equally to the 4 players with the dealer, who turns up one of their cards after the dealing, sequentially rotated. Each player is required to follow suit, and can play a trump only when void in the lead suit. Whoever wins the trick leads the next.
The cards are valued based on their rank: The Ace is worth 11 points, the Seven 10, the King 4, the Jack 3, and the Queen 2. With 120 points at stake in every hand, the first team of 2 to reach 61 points wins the hand. If a team reaches more than 90 points, it scores a double win (i.e. as if they had won two hands). The first team to reach four won hands wins the set, known in Portuguese as a "partida". Although rare, a team capturing all 120 points scores a set.
As well as the high position of the 7, known as "manilha" or "bisca" to Portuguese speaking players, notice that the jack beats the queen. This is very common in Portuguese card games, a resonance of the old Portuguese decks where the Jack was thought of as a knight and the queen corresponded to a maid (see Portuguese playing cards). Each suit sums to 30 points, thus 120 points are at stake in every playing round.
