This is part of my "finding a substitute for Hearts" phase. I already found some trick taking games that scratch a similar itch, but I also miss the thrill of the "Cappotto" (collecting all the points of a hand).

Any games with a similar shoot the moon mechaninc?

Diamonds has a shoot the moon mechanic where you get a bonus if you do not win any tricks.

In King Up!, if you get no points in the third round, then you score the maximum number of points.

In Friday the 13th players try to avoid bad luck by not taking cards from the central playing area each round. The more you take, the worse your score — unless you manage to take the most of one suit, in which case you get to throw those cards away.

That bit sounds similar to Parade; you don't want to take cards, but if you have the most in one suit, each of those cards counts one point against you instead of the face value of the card.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

As does 500, although you need to bid it.
