Kaiser is played by four people; two against two as partners sitting across from each other.
The first team to get 52 points wins the game or -52 will lose the game.
Kaiser is played with 32 cards. 7 through ace in each suit, but with the 3♠ replacing the 7♠ and 7♥ replaced with the 5♥. The cards in each suit rank from high to low: A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7 then 5 & 3 are lowest.
This is a trick taking game, in which each trick is worth one point. In addition, the 5♥ is worth +5 points and the 3♠ is worth -3 points to the team which takes them in their tricks. The team which bids higher chooses the trump suit and tries to take at least as many points as they bid.
Comes in a hard card case with rules enclosed.
For 4 players, ages 6 and up.
