Honneur (card game)
The possession of honors is rewarded with special points in many games; For example, in Écarté, the player who has the king of trumps in his hand may report it and mark a point.
- With a contract in a trump suit, the five highest trumps, i.e. ace, king, queen, jack and ten, count as honors. If a player holds four or even all five honors in his hand, he receives a bonus of 100 or 150 points.
- In the case of a contract without a trump ( sans atout or no trump ), the four aces count as honors; If a player holds all four aces in his hand, this is rewarded with a credit of 150 points.
However, awards for honors are no longer credited to the modern tournament bridge.
In a broader sense, the red threes at Canasta , the report of a mariage at sixty-six or Bézique , the report of certain combinations at Piquet or the possession of flower or season tiles at Mah-Jongg are among the honors.
