The winner of the game must make a certain minimum amount of points, which are scored using hands. Although 500 points are typical, 200 points are appropriate for a quick game. The opening lead is made by the player to the left of the dealer, and all other players are required to match it. A player may play a trump or discard if they are unable to follow suit. The person who plays the highest trump or, in the absence of a trump, the player who played the highest card in the suit led, wins the trick. Next, the trick winner takes the lead. Play continues until no players are left with any cards. 13 tricks are worth one hand. Spades can only be led if they have already been played if the guy leading has no other cards in his hand.
