Hearts count as one point and the queen of spades count as 13 points. The total of all scores for each hand ought to be a multiple of 26. If a player takes all 13 hearts and the queen of spades in one hand, in place of losing 26 points, he or she scores zero and each of the player’s opponent score an additional 26 points.

Deal

You can start a card game of hearts with a deck of 52 cards, without jokers. In the online hearts card game, you have to deal the cards clockwise, one card at a time and each card face down.

In a three-player game, deal 13 cards to each player and add leftover cards to the kitty. Once the cards are dealt, each player should choose three cards to pass to the opponent. In the first deal, cards are passed to the right, then to the right in a second deal and across in the third. In the fourth deal, players keep their own cards.

The player to their left has to follow the suit by playing any one of their club cards and if the player don’t have club card he or she can play any other card except for the point card(hearts card or the queen of spades). The sequence 4 cards being played is called trick and a player wins a trick when he plays the highest card of the suit. The player that wins the trick leads next.

Scoring System as per Hearts Card Game Rules

When all the cards have been played, all the players count their tricks. There is a penalty point for each heart card a player has. If a player has a queen of spades, then he gets 13 points. The player who has a jack of diamonds can subtract 10 points from his score as a bonus. You need to decide a score limit(say 50 or 100) and when any player reaches that score, the player with least number of points wins.

Revoke

When a player does not follow the suit even when he is able to do so, he is not penalized if he corrects his mistake before the trick is completed. But if the mistake isn’t corrected in time and comes to the attention of other players before the deal is scored, the player in question is charged for all the hearts in the deal and other players do not receive a penalty point.
