Cheat, a cardgame played between 2 and 12 people, involves lying, deception and removing your cards. It can be tricky to learn but is a lot of fun. In the basic version of this card game, the entire deck is dealt to players and each player has four cards. The first player places a card face up on the table and announces its value (king to ace). The other players may choose whether to believe this call or ask the player to show their card. If the player shows his card and it’s indeed the declared amount, the player who called him out must drink as many fingers as the declared amount.
In a variant of this card game, the player can declare a group of cards that is at least one card above or below a given card. This can give rise to droll sequences such as “four queens”. In this version, a player accused of cheating must remove all the cards laid down by the suspected cheater. If it is later discovered that they had this set and led a round using them, the accused cheater loses the game.
This card game can be played in a variety of ways. One is to allow both bluffing and betting. This requires the other players to have a good memory and some nerve to call out the player who has just thrown down their last card(s). Players who are confident with their calling abilities can even mark their cards. This will help them to remember the cards that have been dropped.
Cheat can be more difficult to play than other card game, especially when a lot of cards are being played. It is best to have a good understanding of bluffing, and not to overuse it. Other players will be able to easily detect your lie. Understanding the value of each card is also important. You can still be very successful if you save your clever bluffing to the most important moments of the game. It can be difficult to complete the game within the time limit if you are playing against a group of bluffers.
