Beloteis one of the most popular card games in France although it has only been known there for around 70 years. A number of games in Europe are similar to the card game previously also called Belotte among them Jass from Switzerland, Klammern from Germany and Klaberjass from the Netherlands.
Belote is a card game for four players, which is played in two teams. You can choose between Belote Classic, with or without announcements, and the game version Contrée. The aim of the game is to be on the team that first reaches the point limit (501 in Belote Classic and 701 in Belote Contrée). A trump suit is selected in the game. Players must follow suit and take tricks if possible when the trump suit is played. The highest trump card wins the trick or the highest card of the lead suit wins. If a player holds the trump King and Queen, he/she can call "Belote". Twenty bonus points are awarded for this call.
