Cards and Dealing
In the beginning, each player is dealt 13 cards, and the turn shifts counter clockwise. The players should arrange their cards which are from the same suit together.
Cards are arranged from the lowest to the highest as follows:
In each round, each player picks 3 cards and passes them once to the player on his/her right, and the other to the player on his/her left.
The player to the right of the dealer leads the trick, and other players must follow suit if they can, if they can’t, they are allowed to play any other suit, the player who plays the highest card of the suit led collects the trick and leads next round.The game ends when one of the players reaches 101 points or more, and the other team is considered the winner.
Players must avoid collecting tricks which include the following cards:
(Q) of spades
10 of diamonds
Any card of hearts
The round ends when all cards are played.
In Leekha card game there is a concept called Talyeekh, this concept is always obligatory on the Jawaker game App. Talyeekh is when one of the players has a 10 of diamonds or a Q of spades, and doesn’t have a card of the suit led.
In this case, the player is obliged to play any of the two cards mentioned.
Talyeekh is only considered when having the 10 of diamonds, and Q of spades cards in hand!
In case the player had both of these cards in the same time and Talyeekh applies to them, they can pick any card and play it.
In leekha, each player counts their score individually, and when a player reaches 101 points or more, their team loses, and the other team is considered the winner.
The player who collects a trick that includes one of these cards gets points as follows:
13 points for the Q of spades card
10 points for the 10 of diamonds card
One point for each card of hearts.
