Here is a new version of popular card game «Durak»!

About the game

Durak game originated in the 19th century in Russia. It was initially popular among peasants. High society preferred such games as poker, bridge, solitaire. Though during USSR period the game had become popular among all social groups and has been popular ever since.


Throw-in and Passing game modes are played with a deck of 36 cards, Throw-in mode (52 cards) – with a deck of 52 cards. Cards seniority is graded from lower to higher ranks – (2, 3, 4, 5), 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace.

Each player is dealt 6 cards, after which trump card is determined by taking out a random card from the deck. This card is placed under the deck so that it is seen to all players. A card of the same suit as the trump card can beat any of the rest cards, as well as any of the trump card lower in rank. It is impossible to beat trump Ace. Objective of the game is to get rid of all cards. The last player who hasn’t got ridden of all his cards is a «fool».

The first move is made by the player who has the smallest denomination of trump card among the cards dealt to all players. The player makes a move towards his opponent using any of his cards depending on the strategy he chooses (e.g. he wants to get rid of cards that are the lowest in rank or wants to make a move so that his opponent takes the cards). It is also allowed to throw in a card to your opponent if you have a card of the same rank as any of your opponent’s attacking cards (e.g. you attacked with 7, your opponent beat it with 10 - in that case you can throw in 10 if you have it). If all the cards have been beaten, then the cards used for this turn are discarded, after which the players draw cards from the deck (the first player to take cards is the one whose turn it was to play) to have 6 cards in their hands. The turn then goes to defending player. If your opponent can not beat attacking cards he picks them up, and you draw the needed amount of cards from the deck and turn again. The amount of cards that a player can throw in before the first discard should not be more than 5; after the first discard – no more than 6.

A draw is also possible – when a player turns with the last cards and opponent beats with his last cards as well, that is, no one is left with the cards at the end of the game.
