Based on the trick-taking card game of the same name, Taroky is a game as much about tradition and relationships as it is about cards. Learn to navigate the rules of one family’s take on a centuries old game, and the varied personalities of that family who is playing with you. Watch the Aunts knock the deck and circle the table to change their fortune. Watch the Uncles Fleck and Rare, much to the dismay of the Grandmother. Taroky is a deceptively complex game with many layers. It is a partner game where you don’t know who your partner is, your partner changes every round, and “talking over the table” is against the rules.
