Tressette Declarations

Ludopoli uses the tressette rules of the Italian Tressette Federation (F.I.Tres.), which make use of a convenient system of declarations during the game. We list below all these declarations, along with a useful vocabulary of tressette card game (the terms are in Italian, followed by an explanation in English)..

Vocabulary

Palo: a card suit. These are the various suits in the Tressette card game: Coppe ("Cups", Hearts), Denari ("Gold", Diamonds), Spade ("Swords", Spades) and Bastoni ("Sticks", Clubs).
Battuta: the first play in a round.
Pigliata: the winning (i.e. playing a card of higher value) of a Battuta (thus becomin the first to play in the next round).
Passata: a Game of Tressette, in which the two pairs of players try to win most of the 11 possible points.
Carte da tresette (Tressette Cards): 3, 2 or Ace of any suits.
Carta sovrana (Ruling card): the highest remaining card in a suit.
Carta soggetta (Subdued card): a card whose value is inferior to the Ruling Card(or Carta Sovrana).
Venticinque (Twenty-five): term used to indicate the 3 and the 2 of a suit.
Ventotto (Tewnty-eight): term used to indicate the 2 and the Ace of a suit.
Ventinove (Twenty-nine): term used to indicate the 3 and the Ace of a suit.
Napoletana: the three Tressette Cards (3, 2, Ace) in a suit.


General rules about Declarations.

If the first player didn't make a declaration when playing his card, he can't make a declaration about that suit anymore (when playing first in a round).
If a player make a declaration about a suit, he can't make another declaration about the same suit in the whole round (passata). The only exception is when a player has a lunghissimo game: he can make other declarations, stating if the game is yet lunghissimo or not (see below).


Explanations of Declarations.

There are three kind of declarations:

  • Declarations about the starting suit (made by the player who plays first in the round)
  • Decalrations about the suit just played (made by the player who won the round)
  • Declarations about the other suits

Declarations about the starting suit

Declarations about the suit just played (made by the player who won the round)

When a player, who isn't the first to play, win the round, he can make a declaration about the suit just played. The following declarations are allowed:
  • “ho fatto questo piombo”, when you have won the round by playing your only (or last) card in that suit.
  • “sono liscio qui”, when you have at least another card in the same suit; that card is soggetta (or subdued), i.e. a card of a lower value than those of the other players.

Declarations about the other suits.

When comes its turn to play, a player can make a declaration about one of the other suits (different from the one just played or about to be played). These are the declarations allowed:
  • “feci un piombo”, to say that you don't have anymore card in one or more suits, different from the one you won in the previous round (this declaration isn't implemented- See the For Experts Only paragraph below).
  • “sono faglio a un palo”, to say that fromthe start (or in the moment in which you make this declaration, it's the same) you didn't have any card in one or more suits.
  • “faglio al palo del mio compagno”, to say that you don't have any card of the suit that (you think) your partner has interest in. (this declaration is not checked by the program).
  • “liscio al palo del mio compagno”, to say that you have at least a subdued card (a low-value card) of the suit that (you think) your partner has interest in. (this declaration is not checked by the program).

For Experts Only

The actual version of Tressette Card Games in Ludopoli has some small differences in the official declarations (described above) of the Italian Federation of Tressette Game.

The following declarations about the starting suit were modified:
  • È mio liscio e piombo o venticinque piombo = when playing the 2 and 3 consecutively (in this order) di un venticinque piombo (3 and 2 of a suit, without any other cards in the same suit).
  • È mio, terzo o terzo, voglio l'Asso = when playing the 2 of a venticinque terzo (a Twenty-five with another card) with or without the King.

In case of a venticinque piombo the payer doesn't have to play the cards in a definite order, but he can make the declaration ony if he plays the 2 as the first card.
In case of a venticinque terzo you can make the declaration by playing either of the Tressette cards in your hand. This is true also when playing a ventotto terzo or a ventinove terzo.

The following declaration about the other suits is not implemented:
  • "feci un piombo", to say that you don't have anymore card in one or more suits, different from the one you won in the previous round.

Use of declarations in the client

When opening a table you can choose il you want to use manual declarations or automatic declarations.
In the first case, the declarations are made by the players by using the chat (and the server doesn't check them).
In the latter case, when it's your turn, you can check one or more boxes concerning the declarations you want to make. You can then play your chosen card.
The server autmatically find the right declaration to make, and send it to all the players, by writing it in the chat and wit a temporary message over the table.
The first player to act in a raound, may choose one or more of the following declarations' groups:
  • Declarations about the starting suit
  • Declarations about the other suits
  • A declaration about the partner's suit

If you're not the first to play in a round, you can only make a declaration about the suit just played.
This declaration, too, has to be selected during your turn: if you win the trick, then the declaration is sent to all the players. If not, it is canceled.
