Fingers the Card Game

Fingers the Card Game


Fingers is a trick taking card game very similar to: Forty-Five, Forte Fives, Auction Forty-Fives, Auction 120s, 120, Growl, Spoil Five, Maw, and Strong Fives. It also shares several things in common with Bridge, Hearts and Spades.

After a round of betting/bidding on the number of tricks each player thinks they will take, the real game begins. In each round, every player will play one card in turn with the highest card winning the trick. The ultimate goal for a player is to make their bet exactly, while also trying to make their opponents miss theirs.

There is a significant amount of strategy involved as the number of cards dealt, the trump suit, the number of players and their respected goals are all variable in each hand.

Multi-player support coming soon.

A card game among card games When I was 12 years old, my father took me out on his fishing boat for the first time. We lived in the Northern region of Scotland in a small town called Aultbea, on the coast of Loch Ewe. I had never been asked to accompany him on a fishing trip, which could sometimes last upwards of a week, so needless to say I was quite excited. On the first evening out at sea, my father sat me down at the rough, hand-worked oak table and told me "Son, it's time you learned Fingers". We sat in the shadows for hours that night with nothing but light from an old oil-lantern as my father taught me the strategy behind this mysterious game of cards. The next morning, clouds began to roll in. "A storm be brewing, lad," my father said to me. Before long our small vessel was being rocked by waves as tall as streetlamps. Our small craft was destroyed in that storm, and although I was able to cling to a life raft, I never saw my father again. The sea had consumed him. I was rescued after drifting aimlessly for two days at sea. Since then I have dedicated myself to the game of Fingers, striving to be the best in all of Scotland. That being said, this game is pretty solid. 5 stars.

Just a guy from Nova Scotia this app doesn't follow the rules of 45's or Auction. This guy pretty much made up a card game. You can't play with no/all trump suite. After the cards are dealt you're suppose to turn up a card that determines the trump suite and have discards. It's in the rules that each player get 5 cards, you can't choose your hand size like you can in this app. If there is bidding, where's the Kitty?The score is counted by the Tricks you win, off The turned up Trump card. Also, you don't bid your suite.U bid ur tricks

Awesome! This card game is challenging and strangely addictive. Once I figured out the suit and card ranking system this became my go-to game app. The computer players are good but not impossible. There are enough variations of how to bid and play to keep it from getting repetitive or boring. Every hand is a new challenge to either make nil or force the computers to overbid or rack up as many tricks as possible.
