Call the King, also known as ‘Tarock’, is played with 4 players. This card game emerged during the Habsburg monarchy in the second half of the 18th century.

The game consists of 54 cards:

22 tarock cards (tarock I - XXI, sküs)
32 suit cards (8 cards of each of the suits clubs, spades, hearts, diamonds)

You must follow suit and tarock. At the start, each player receives 12 cards. Then two piles, each with 3 cards, are placed in the ‘Talon’ by the dealer. Starting with the player who sits after the forehand, the players try to bid for the highest game (more details in the rules of the game in the ‘Bidding table’). Whoever bids the highest game (the ‘game bidder’), must then play this game.
