This geeklist is one of several in a large project to determine which games do BGG users consider the best of each game mechanic. Over the next month or so I will add several lists every few days for you to vote on which game you think is the best for any given game mechanic.
h
Sometime in August I will close the voting and present the results in one final Geeklist to present to the world BGG User's Top Games of Each Game Mechanic. For each list I have started with the top 5 ranked games. If you feel there is a better game for that mechanic than please add your own entry and thumb away.

Rules:
1. Vote for one game only by thumbing its entry
2. Add another entry only if you consider it the best game of that category
3. If you have added an entry but then change your mind, just leave it
4. Voting closes in August
5. In order for a game to be considered eligible it must rely heavily on that specific mechanic. It should not simply contain that mechanic.

Individual entries will be sorted alphabetically for easier searching.

Partnership/Cooperative trick-taking game in which you have to find out who is your parnter in every game (players holding one of the two queens of clubs play together normally, players can try and go solo etc.).

Beats Skat hands down if you have four people.

If you like Tichu (which is not exactly a trick-taking game), give Doppelkopf a try!

The other 5 are just starters for the list, the top 5 ranked trick taking games. This is my personal favorite.

+ Easy to teach.
+ Challenging to play well.
+ Plays with a readily available standard international deck.

= Supports 3 or 4 well. This isn't much of a player range, but it doesn't demand a single number, either.

- Unlikely to be in a random player's repertoire.
