A single turn of play where each player plays one card into the center, clockwise from the person who starts the trick. In almost all trick-taking games, the highest card played wins the trick (the player takes the cards and puts them into a scoring pile), and the player of that card then leads the next trick. In games with Trump, cards in the trump suit supercede all other suits, even if they are of a lower rank than the highest card played.
(n.) Term used to describe the game period during which each player plays one card. The player who played the highest ranking card during this period is said to have "won the trick" or "taken the trick".
a set of four cards played to the table, one from each hand, led by the winner of the previous trick (the declarer leads to the first trick). Each player plays a card to the trick in order, to the left of the leader. The winner of the trick is the person who played the highert-ranking card of the suit led, or if the trick contains trump, the highest-ranking trump played on the trick.
The cards played by both players during a round of the game. One person plays a card face up from her hand. The other person plays a card from her hand in response, following suit if possible. (See Winning a trick.)
A trick in a trump game is the sequence of an individual card played by each player starting from 1st hand and ending in 4th hand. Each player must follow suit if possible. The highest card played wins the trick unless a trump card has been played.
A term used in bidding games. In the game of 42, for example, each of the four players plays 1 tile per trick. The trick is won by the player who played the winning tile of the 4 tiles played. There are 7 tricks in a hand of 42.
