66 was invented in 1652, making it one of the oldest and most popular German card games around. The game belongs to the Bézique-Family. Depending on the region, the game is played with French cards or “doppeldeutschen” cards.
The game is played with 24 cards in four suits (Spades, Hearts, Diamonds and Clubs), listed by order of value: Ace, 10, King, Queen, Jack, 9. A round is won as soon as a player reaches 66 points. The aim of the game is to reduce the counter value (displayed on the pad of paper in the bottom left corner) to 0.
