| A Bellot game is complete when one team has amassed 1,000 points before the other team. In the
event both teams amass over 1,000
points, the team with the highest score wins.
| A single Round of Bellot
has a total of 162 points unless there is Room
(explained below). The Taking team must get half of the
Round's total points. If the Taking team does not get half of the total points they are Down and all points are awarded to the other team.
| The total value of all Trumps
is 62 points.
The total value of the other 3 suits of non-trumps is 90 points.
Summing 62 + 90 gives a total of 152 points.
The final 10 points is given to the team who takes the Last Lift.
Team A has 95 points - Team B has 67 points.
Team A's points get rounded down to 90 and Team B's points get rounded up to 70.
Team A has 86 points - Team B has 76 points.
Team A gets 90 points and Team B gets 80.
Although the total points for a game is 162 (without Room), when both point totals end on 6 they both get rounded to the nearest ten.
|Room is defined as additional points added to total score of the Round.|
Bellot as seen in italics above is a
special case. See Bellot definition in glossary.
| Room Rule: Room must be verbally declared at the beginning of the Round and must be shown prior to the
Room must be verbally declared prior to the start of card play for the Round. Each player at the table will announce if they have Room.
Room is declared in the following manner, a player who has Room will verbally announce: "I have Room, Tears, Jack high".
Once it has been established which player
has the highest order Room, that player must show their
Room cards to the rest of the
The person with the highest order
Room will have their
team's Room points added to their team's total for that Round, if the other team
|Room Rule: A card can only be used once to form Room, NOT multiple times. See Figure 1 below.|
|The King of Hearts is used to form a Carry of Kings (4 Kings) and cannot be reused to form an Ace-High Tears in Hearts|
|Who's Room Counts?!?!?!?|
| Step 1. The team with the player holding
of the highest Power Order or most valuable in total points will count.
(see Room Power Order table above). If Step 1 does not resolve the conflict go to Step 2.
| Step 2. If both teams have a player with Room of the same Power Order (i.e. a Tears). The Room in Trumps will count.
If Step 2 does not resolve the problem go to Step 3.
| Step 3. If both teams have a player with Room of the same Power Order (i.e. a Tears) and neither player has Room in Trumps,
the team without the Dealer will have their Room count and the other team with the Dealer will lose their Room.
|After the determination of Highest Room has been established, the Room from both players on that team will count.|
| A Flag is a term used when one team takes all 8 Lifts; the other team has been Flagged.
The team giving the Flag will receive 250 points; the other team will receive a little flag drawn in their points column.
See Figure 7 below.
|If the team who got Flagged had Room, they will receive their Room points. See Figure 8 below.|
|One player at the table will keep score.|
|Any player at the table is allowed to count the points at the end of a Round to ensure Score Keeper honesty.|
|Figures 3 through 8 below explain the example score sheet|
| We have designed a score sheet to help the scorekeeper track all important information about each Round (see below).
|Columns 1 and 2 are used to track one team's Score and Room.|
|Columns 3 and 4 are used to track the other team's Score and Room.|
|Column 5 is used to track which suit is Trumps in the current Round by circling C, D, H, or S (Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades).|
|Column 6 is used to track the Dealer's position. Fill the box indicating the Dealer's current location relative to the scorekeeper.|
|The scorekeeper's location at the table is represented by the bottom box.|
