Callbreak Tutorials is a comprehensive guide to the card game Callbreak, also known as Lakdi. It provides a step-by-step explanation of the game, helping players understand its rules and strategies.
Here’s what you’ll find in the tutorial:
Callbreak, also known as Lakdi, is a solo 4-player card game played with a standard deck of 52 cards. Each player is dealt 13 random cards.
The card value sequence in Callbreak is A, K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 for each suit (Spades ♠, Hearts ♡, Clubs ♣, Diamonds ��). A is the highest card, and 2 is the lowest.
Each game can consist of 2, 3, or 5 rounds, and the final score for a player is the sum of scores in each round.
In each round, the 4 players receive 13 cards randomly, and the game has two steps: a. Bidding – Based on the strength of their cards, each player bids the number of hands they can win in the round.
The game starts when all 4 players have locked their bids for the round. b. Game – The player next to the dealer starts the game by throwing a card.
Other players must follow suit. The player with the highest card wins the hand and leads the next hand.
Trump – Spades ♠ is the default trump. If a player doesn’t have the suit in play, they can play a Spade to win the hand. If multiple players play trump, the highest Spade wins.
If a player lacks the suit in play or the trump, they can play any card at their discretion.
Scoring – The score in each round is calculated based on the bid value:
- If the hands won are more than the bid value, the score is Bid value + Extra Hands won. Example: Bid 3 and won 5 hands, the score is 3.2.
- If the hands won are less than the bid value, the score is (-)Bid Value. Example: Bid 3 and won 0, 1, or 2 hands, the score is (-3) in each case.
- The round ends when all 13 cards have been played. The next round begins with bidding again.
- 8 Hand Win – If any player bids 8 hands in any round and wins all 8, they are declared the winner. This rule doesn’t apply when a player bids less than 8 and wins all 8 hands. The highest score among the other 3 players ranks second.
- Autoplay – If a player doesn’t play their card within the turn time (10 seconds), the system automatically plays the best hand. This is called autoplay.
- If a player’s autoplay count exceeds 10 in the entire game, they will not receive their winnings. In the event of a score tie, the player with fewer autoplays wins the game.
