Table host sets options which include such things as series consisting of any combination of 50, 90, 120, 150, and 200 point rounds, draws of either 2 or 3 cards at a time, choice of zero, 2 or 4 jokers per deck, and decisions of whether the entire team must be playing their final hand in order to go out or not. When our family and friends play Hand and Foot we refer to these as "house rules".
Close up to 3 books for each face value (4's thru Ace's). Classic Hand and Foot rules don't allow multiple books per face value, but we find that this makes the game much more fun. Also, we have found that additional books for each face value make it more fun as larger point rounds (like 150 and 200) can require 7 - 11 books to go out. Classic Hand and Foot rules often require only a single clean book and a single polluted book to go out.
No need to manually count points - scoring (both individual rounds and series) is automatic. Scoring is shown at the end of each round (50, 90, 120, 150, or 200 point rounds).
Pick up the top 7 cards from the discard pile. It's easy to do. If your team is already down then you can pick up the top cards from the discard pile by selecting two matching cards from your hand. Sorry - threes and wilds on top can not be picked up.
Did you just pick up the pile? Our unique layout positions the new cards in your hand slightly elevated so that the new cards are easier to see. In a game of Hand and Foot using real cards you pick up and place the cards in your hand. In this automated version the new cards are easily identified for you. Plus we automatically arrange them for you. Each player gets to decide whether they want to see their cards in "ascending" or "descending" order. Our online version of the Hand and Foot card game makes it easy for you to track your hand.
Game includes unique 200 Round consisting of hand, foot, and tail. Each time a player draws cards (or takes the discard pile) a card is added to their tail. After they play their hand and their foot, they then need to play their tail.
Dealing is done automatically for you. At the start of each round of Hand and Foot 11 cards are dealt to each player's hand, and 11 cards are also dealt to each player's foot.
