Over several hands, players bid to take the most cards in one or more of the three suits, each a differentkind of hat. Players who feel they will take few, if any, tricks may bid to take the fewest cards in tricks played during each hand. Players score points for making their bids and lose points for missing their bids. Several cards picture Bob's Hat in addition to the hat of their suit. The dealer decides each round whether Bob's Hat is worth 10 points or minus 10 points. Each time a player wins a suit containing a card with Bob's Hat on it, the player takes a special Bob's Hat card (worth plus or minus 10 points). The player with the card at the end of the hand adds (or subtracts) 10 points to his score. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
