Good day to all! And all with the coming spring! Can you please tell me when the rules will be published for The Eternal Second [Beta]? I understand that the game is still in testing, but the rules are much more interesting to play! Please post the rules for this game at least in English and French versions. Thanks in advance for your reply !!!
While the rules are never officially written as this was the game invented by the developer himself as a joke on april 1st, here's a short summary:
The second highest card always wins the trick,
if the suit is not followed, strenghth of the card is by suits, hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs, meaning that the strongest card is ace of hearts and weakest 2 of clubs,
the winner is the second highest score,
2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 8s and 9s give negative points,
aces give plus 11, kings plus 4, queens plus 3, jacks plus 2, tens plus 10 and sevens plus 7 points,
if a 2 is within a trick it doubles the value of that trick.
Hope I got everything right, and if not somebody can always clarify but this is as far as I remember.
