About 29 League

Enjoy the classic card game with addictive strategy - 29 League!

29 League is a popular South Asian trick-taking card game played with four players in fixed partnerships. The game is played with 32 cards, comprising of 8 cards from each suit. The cards rank from high to low: J (3 points), 9 (2 points), A (1 point), 10 (1 point), K (0 points), Q (0 points), 8 (0 points), 7 (0 points). The aim of the game is to win tricks containing valuable cards. The team that sets the highest target gets to set the trump suit, thus biasing the game towards them. The opponents need to achieve 29 - (bid) to stop the bid winner team from winning the game. The game is generally played with a total of 28 points, but some variations have a total of 29 points for the last trick, which is how it received its namesake.

The game starts with the dealer shuffling the deck and the player to their right cutting it. Each player receives four cards, one at a time, face-down. Depending on the cards in hand, players place bids for electing trumps. A bid is a number that represents the number of tricks that a person believes their partnership can make. The highest bidder wins. The bid starts with the player to the left of the dealer and moves left. Players can raise the bid or pass. The winner of the bidding selects the trump suit. The dealer passes each player another 4 cards. Each player now has 8 cards.

The first trick starts with the player to the left of the dealer. Each player must follow suit if they can. At this point, the trump suit is unknown to all other players. The first player who is unable to follow suit is required to ask the bidder what the trump suit is, and they must show the trump suit to everyone. However, if the bidder is the first player who is unable to follow suit, they must declare to everyone what the trump suit is. Once the trump is declared, the highest value card from that suit played wins the trick. If no trump card is played, then it is the highest value card of the suit led. In the event, the bidder or their partner announces they have a Pair, their bid is reduced by four, as long as their bid remains above the 15 point minimum. However, if the other partner has the Pair, it increases the bid by 4, as long as it doesn’t exceed 28.

After all 8 tricks have been taken, the partnerships total the value of the cards they have won. The winners of the last trick add an additional point to their total. If the bidding partnership fulfilled their contract by taking the required number of tricks, they won a single game point. If not, they lose a game point. The other set of partners' scores remains constant. The red and black sixes are used for keeping score. The red six (nali or red chaka) displays the positive score, and the black six displays the negative score with the number of pips it has revealed. At the start, each partnership has no pips showing. Pips are revealed as players lose or gain points. The game can end in one of two ways: one team has +6 points or one team has -6 points.

29 League can be played offline as a single player or online as multiplayer with friends or random players. It is a great option for time pass and has regular updates. The game has the best AI (BOT) and smooth gameplay. If you find any bugs or want any feature, please give feedback to the developers.
