Hearts

Hearts is an "evasion-type" trick-taking playing card game for four players, although variations can accommodate 3–6 players. The game is also known as Black Lady, The Dirty, Dark Lady, Slippery Anne, Chase the Lady, Crubs, and Black Maria, though any of these may refer to the similar but differently-scored game Black Lady. The game is a member of the Whist family of trick-taking games (which also includes Bridge and Spades), but the game is unique among Whist variants in that it is an evasion-type game; players avoid winning certain penalty cards in tricks, usually by avoiding winning tricks altogether.

Famous quotes containing the word hearts:

    Ask us, ask us whether with the worldless rose
    Our hearts shall fail us; come demanding
    Whether there shall be lofty or long standing
    When the bronze annals of the oak-tree close.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
    And mouth with myriad subtleties.
    Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)

    O Spirit,
    spark by spark,
    you instil fire
    through the sight
    to hearts you attack
    you grant rare happiness!
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
