Description

Do you think you can outsmart your phone in a card game?

Septica is the most popular card game from Romania , it is simple, fun and addictive.It is perfect when you have to wait a few minutes, you can play it everywhere.

The rules are simple and straight foreword and you will compete with your phone, a very challenging AI, you will have to be very careful on how you play or you will most likely lose.

Sedma and Şeptică are Czech and Romanian for seven and little seven, respectively (referring to the wild cards), and zsírozás or zsír is Hungarian for to fatten (referring to the play of aces or tens into tricks). This game may have originated in Hungary or Poland and found its way to Czechoslovakia in the middle of the 20th century or it may have come from Russia It quickly became one of the most popular games in the country

Septica(Sedma) games is part of the Ace-Ten group of point-trick games because there are generally points each for the aces and tens (and sometimes a further for the last trick).

However, the mechanics of play are rather different from most trick-taking games - the suits are ignored and a card can only be beaten by another card of equal rank, or a wild card. Moreover, a trick does not necessarily end when each player has played one card, but in some circumstances can be continued for further rounds. Sevens are often wild - hence the name of the group: sedma is Czech for seven, and the name of the best known game of the group.

The games of this group are clearly related to each other. The first known record of a game of this type is of the Hungarian game Zsíros in 1930. On the other hand the Finnish game Ristikontra retains the older 11-10-4-3-2 card point structure. Without further information it is difficult to know which if either of these games is the common ancestor of the group.

Sedma - played in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
Sedmice - played in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia where it is also known as Šuster.
Ristikontra - from Finland - perhaps the ancestor of this group
Hola - possibly from Poland or Ukraine
Zsíros - from Hungary
