All the odd ranked cards have special abilities printed on them. These cards change up the game play and might determine who the winner will be, or who leads the next trick. They are critical to you gaining treasures.

Portable Card Game
Small card game to easily bring to any game day or perfect for when you are waiting on your food at a restaurant. Fun for all ages and card players.
Shuffle and Deal
Shuffle 33 cards and deal 13 to each player leaving 7 for the draw deck. Reveal the top from the deck and that is the decree card which might be used with some special abilities and serves as trump.
Leading and Following
The non-dealer leads on the first trick of the round. After that, the winner of one trick will lead the following trick. The lead card is the lead suit and the follower must play the same suit as the lead suit, if able.
Determine the Winner of the Trick
After both cards have been played and abilities activated (if able) there is a winner. Typically the highest ranked card will win. However, the trump will always win if it is played. The winner collects the cards and the trick is set aside.
End of Round
After all 13 tricks have been played, count how many tricks each player has collected. Players will gain points based on how many tricks they have won. Don't get too greedy or you might get no points.
The Queen decreed that whoever defeated the monsters would be granted half the kingdom in reward. With the help of the woodcutter, swan, fox and monarch you will be able to collect treasures and gain the Witch's trust!
