French Tarot (jeu de tarot) is a classic trick-taking card game for 4, played with a tarot deck. As the name suggests, Tarot card game is most popular in France, but it is also widely played in the French-speaking parts of Canada. Known also as ‘the Game of Kings’, the game has alternatives where it is played by 3 or 5 players.
French Tarot is played with a special deck designed for the game. The Tarot deck consists of 78 cards – the four standard suits plus an additional 21 numbered trump suit. The standard decks have 14 cards of a suit – 1 to 10, Jack, Cavalier (a new card), Queen, and King. There is also one extra card with a special function – the Fool.
The most unique and a bit confusing part of French Tarot is that it is simultaneously a team game and a solo game. In the end, the player with the most points is the sole winner, but each round the gameplay opposes three players against one. Teams shuffle when rounds change and player dynamics can escalate quickly. That’s what makes the game so fun to play.
