INTRODUCTION OF CATCHING FARMERS

Catching Farmers, also known as Bauernfangen, is a trick taking card game played in Austria.  It can be played with 4 or 5 players, and it uses a small 20 card deck.  In this game, there is no trump suit, and the deck ranges from 10’s (low) up through Ace (high) in each suit.

The game is played for 8 rounds.  During the first four rounds, players are trying to avoid the Jacks.  In the last four rounds, players are trying to capture as many Jacks as possible.  Traditionally, this game is played for money with each Jack given a monetary value. 

THE CARDS & THE DEAL

To determine the first dealer, each player takes a card from the pack.  The player with the lowest ranking card deals first.  Shuffle and deal out the entire deck evenly.  In a four player game, each player will have 5 cards.  In a five player game, each player will have 4 cards.

THE PLAY

The player left of the dealer plays a card from their hand to the trick.  Each other player must follow suit if they can.  Once players cannot follow suit, they can play any card they want.  The highest card in the suit that led the trick wins.  The trick-winner leads.

Play continues as described for eight rounds with the deal passing left each round.  At the end of each round, tally up the score.
