Blind Bellot

  Blind Bellot is played with the same rules as regular Bellot with one exception, the player to the Dealer's right is automatically

  dealt the top card for Trumps (taking Blind, hence the name Blind Bellot). The Dealer will deal the remaining cards as normal.
Selecting a Dealer
  Being the initial Dealer is a slight advantage since your team won't be the first to take Blind.

  We recommend selecting the initial Dealer using the high-card method:

  • Each player at the table is dealt a card, the person with the highest card becomes the first Dealer of the game.

  As the deal rotates around the table, each player will have to take Blind. All playing rules and scoring are identical to regular Bellot.
