4)First Player have to start a game by throwing a card of any suit. Suit thrown by this player will be the led suit .
5) Other Players should throw the same suit unless they runs out of that particular suit. If they dont have same led suit player can throw a card of another suit including a Spade which is a trump card.

There will be five rounds of play or five deals in this Call Break game. In each round, it deals all the cards in anti-clockwise direction to all the four players i.e. 13 cards per each player.
Each player has to bid a number of tricks or hands which is minimum tricks he/she must win to get a positive score in that round. Extra tricks won will be added in the score.
After each round, points will be updated for every player. If a player captured at least the number of call or bid he/she had made, then for every trick a player won- one point is given to that player and for every extra wins- a single digit decimal (0.1) will be added to the points total (Additional tricks (Over Tricks) are worth an extra 0.1 times one point each) i.e. if someone had made a bid/call of 4 and he captured 5 hands then he will be given 4.1 or if the bid/call was 3 then point would have been 3.2. But if a player didn’t take at least as many tricks as her/his bid , then the total number of bid/call would be subtracted from his total score.
All other 3 computers are with artificial intelligence in the single player mode.
