The King wants revenue. In order to provide it, the players in the card game “Ugo!” have to take the right tricks in the right order. There are five suits, each with the numbers zero to eight. Each player begins the round with ten cards in hand. If you can, you must follow suit. The trick is won by the player who contributes the highest number, regardless of suit. This player sorts the cards by suit and places them onto their estates, covering up cards from previous tricks. There’s a mischievous sense of joy when someone has to place a zero on an eight, since at the end of the game every farming estate is worth the points shown by the top card. Whoever hires too few farmers on each trick gains minus points in this refined trick-taking game.
