How to Play
Pişti is played with a standard 52 card deck, each player receives 4 cards. The dealer deals the top three cards face down and one card face-up to the centre of the table. The direction of play is anticlockwise. Cards are played to a central pile, which can be captured by matching the previous card played or playing a jack. If rank of the played card matches the rank of the previous card on the pile, the playing team captures the whole pile. Points are scored for certain captured cards. If the pile consists of just one card and the next player captures it by playing a matching card (not a jack), gets 10 point bonus for a "pisti". One of the capturing cards is placed face up in the team's capture pile as a way of remembering the 10 points later when scoring. If the pile consists of just a single jack and you capture it with another jack, this counts as a double pisti, worth 20 points.
Points are scored for particular cards, for the majority of cards, and for each pisti as follows:
Each jack is 1 point, each ace is 1 point, 2 is 2 points 10 is 3 points, majority of cards are 3 points and each pisti is 10 points.
