The main objective of the Court Piece card game, also known as Coat Pees, Coat Piece, Hokm, Rung, or Rang, is to be the first player or team to win a certain number of rounds, typically seven. Winning a round involves capturing the majority of the 13 tricks in each round. Tricks are won by having the highest-ranking card in the leading suit.
Court Piece is traditionally played with four players in two teams of two, but variations can also accommodate two or three players. It's played with a standard 52-card deck, with Ace being the highest card and 2 the lowest. One team member deals with the cards.
The game begins with the player to the dealer's right leading a card. The following players must play a card of the same suit if possible. If they can't, they can play any other card. The player who played the highest card of the leading suit wins the trick and leads the next one.
The team that wins seven tricks first wins the round. If a team wins the first seven tricks consecutively, it's a 'court,' and the round ends immediately, with the winning team getting double points.
