Rook, a trick-taking and bidding game, is similar to bridge. Players manage the deck more easily because there are no face cards, just point cards from 1 to 14 in four different colors instead of suits. Bidding, or predicting which hands a player will take, occurs at the beginning of the game. It is also scored differently, because only certain cards count towards a score, and number of hands won, or tricks taken, does not count at all. Parker Brothers first produced Rook in 1906; it is still going strong.
