Suicide is played in partners. The big difference is that one of the team members must bid Nil while the other has to bid at least 4. The rest of the game follows as a normal partner’s game.
The deck consists of 52 cards and no Jokers.
Each player receives 13 cards.
Cards ranking from high to low:
A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2
Spades will always trump other cards, even if it is the lowest Spade.
The initial team bidder must bid 4 and higher or Nil.
The partner must follow the bid with a Nil bid or 4 and higher.
· NIL BID - gives 100 points, but also costs 100 if the player wins even one trick.
· BLIND NIL - No blind bids in Suicide.
The winning team is the first to reach the target points or if the opposing team drops below the threshold.
