A friend sent me an email - but I didn't know the answer. Can anyone help recall this game?

His message is pasted here:

Hey there Bill. You remember playing a card game where
you only hold 3 cards, and try to get the lowest sum
before the others? What was it called? and what were
the precise point system? Kings were 0, Queens were
0.5... what were Jacks?



Thanks for any help, gang!

A great site for card games is: http://www.pagat.com

Although I couldn't find anything quite like the game you describe, there's one called golf - http://www.pagat.com/draw/golf.html - Which uses 4 or more cards and players try to get the lowest value.. kings are worth 0 but jacks and queens 10.
Sorry I can't be more help.

This is a complete guess, but the three cards sounds like "tonk". But been so long, may not be right./

Maybe, Briscola, an Italian card game but I don't think you are trying for the lowest score.
