Description [fr]

Un jeu de Mau Mau, par Heiko Schäfer (velnias75) & contributeurs.

NetMauMau est un portage mono (vs IA) et multijoueur (en LAN) du jeu de cartes Mau Mau, proche du UNO®, dont l'objectif est de se défausser le premier de toutes ses cartes.

Jouez au jeu de cartes populaire Mau Mau (similaire à UNO®) contre l'ordinateur ou en LAN avec vos amis. Il se compose d'un serveur autonome hautement configurable et d'un client Qt4 / 5.
Des binaires sont disponibles pour Windows, Debian 7/8, Ubuntu et Arch Linux ainsi que des ebuilds pour Gentoo.


Wikipedia (en) :

Mau Mau est un jeu de cartes pour 2 joueurs ou davantage, populaire en Allemagne, aux États-Unis, au Brésil, en Pologne, aux Pays-Bas et quelques autres. Au delà de 5 joueurs, 2 paquets de cartes peuvent être utilisés. Le premier à se débarrasser de ses cartes remporte le jeu. Mau Mau est très similaire au jeu UNO et au jeu Flaps, tous deux appartenant à une famille de jeux de cartes plus large - le 8 américain. Néanmoins Mau Mau se joue avec un jeu de cartes à jouer classique.

Règles :

Le jeu se joue avec un jeu de cartes à jouer classique. Les joueurs reçoivent chacun une main de cartes (en général 5). Le reste est placé en pile (constituant la pioche), face cachée. Au début du jeu la carte supérieure est révélé, puis les joueur jouent leurs cartes tour à tour.

On peut jouer une carte si elle correspond à la couleur ou à la valeur de la carte révélée. Exemple, pour un 10 de pique, seuls les piques ou les 10 peuvent être joués. Si un joueur ne peut pas, il prend une carte dans la pioche. S'il peut jouer cette carte, il la dépose sur la pile de dépose (face révélée), sinon il garde sa carte et passe son tour. Lorsque la pile de cartes à piocher est vide, la pile de jeu (sauf la carte du dessus) est mélangée et remis en tant que nouvelle pile de pioche.

Néanmoins, il existe une variété importante de règles inhabituelles et prêtant à confusion. On ne peut pas véritablement parler de règles, et les règles varient d'un groupe à l'autre et même au sein des groupes. Un président (parfois appelé le "Mau Master") est habituellement élu avant le premier tour, il s'agit généralement de celui qui a remporté le tour précédent. Le président peut modifier les règles à sa convenance.


NdT :
J'ai traduit ci-dessus la page Wikipédia Anglaise pour les règles générales du jeu.
Ce portage utilise en plus des règles spécifiques (voir ci-après) en fonction des cartes jouées qui en modifie / améliore le gameplay (plus le courage de traduire :)).

Description [en]

Play the popular card game Mau Mau (similar to UNO®) against the computer or over the network with your friends.
It consists of a highly configurable stand-alone server and a client based on Qt4/5.

There are binaries available for Windows, Debian 7/8, Ubuntu and Arch Linux as well as ebuilds for Gentoo. See Files section for details.


General rules

At the beginning every player gets five random cards out of a set of 32 cards. Of the remaining cards one card's front is visible to all players and the rest serves as pool of cards to take if a player cannot play a card or if the player has to take cards due to the Seven rule. If all pool cards are either in players hands or played out all cards except the visible card are shuffled again and made available as pool again.

The aim of NetMauMau is to get away all cards as fast as possible. To achieve this a player can play out any card of either the same rank or the same suit. If a player cannot play out any card the player has to take one from the pool and to suspend. Some cards trigger specific actions as described below.

If a player has lost the points of the player's cards are summed up. If the player has lost due a played out Jack, the points are doubled. The higher that value the worse the game is lost.

Specific card rules

All rules apply also to the visible card at the beginning of the game for the first player.

• Seven (1 point)

if a Seven is played out than the next player has either to take two more cards or play out another Seven. In that case the next player has either to take plus two (i.e. four) cards or can also play out a Seven and so forth. At maximum one player has to take eight cards if a sequence of four Seven are played out. After a player took the cards, but cannot play any card, the player has not to take a extra card

• Eight (2 points)

If an Eight is played out, the next player has to suspend and the next player can play a card. The player has not to take an extra card. An Eight played before takes precedence, i.e. even if the next player has an Eight, the player has to suspend

• Nine (3 points)

If more than two players joined the game and enabled with --direction-change|-d, than a change of direction is performed. If the player count drops to two, this card get the same meaning like Eight. Else there is no special rule for that rank

• Ten (4 points)

There is no special rule for that rank

• Queen (5 points)

The same as for Ace rounds but with Queen if enabled with --ace-round=QUEEN|-aq

• King (6 points)

The same as for Ace rounds but with King if enabled with --ace-round=KING|-ak

• Ace (11 points)

If the Ace rounds are enabled (--ace-round=ACE|-aa), a player can, if there are two or more Aces on hand, start an Ace round. Within the Ace round other players can only play out Aces or have to suspend and take a card. The player can stop the Ace round at any time. The Ace round is also stopped if the player plays the last Ace. Otherwise Ace has no special rule.

• Jack (20 points)

If a Jack of any suite is played out, the player can wish a new suit. A Jack can get played over any card except another Jack. An Eight played before takes precedence, i.e. even if the next player has a Jack, the player has to suspend



Wikipedia (en):

Mau Mau is a card game for 2 or more players that is popular in Germany, the United States, Brazil, Poland, the Netherlands[citation needed] and some other areas. For more than 5 players, 2 packs of cards may be used. Whoever gets rid of his/her cards first wins the game. Mau Mau is very similar to the game Uno and Flaps, both belonging to the larger Crazy Eights or shedding family of card games. However Mau Mau is played with a regular deck of playing cards.

Rules

The game is played with a regular deck of playing cards. The players are dealt each a hand of cards (usually 5). The rest are placed face down as the drawing stack. At the beginning of the game the topmost card is revealed, then the players each get a turn to play cards.

One can play a card if it corresponds to the suit or value of the open card. E.g. on a 10 of spades, only other spades can be played or other 10s. If a player is not able to, they draw one card from the stack. If he can play this card, he may do so, otherwise he keeps the drawn card and passes his turn. If the drawing stack is empty, the playing stack (except for the topmost card) is shuffled and turned over to serve as new drawing stack.

However, there are a large quantity of unusual, and confusing rules. One may not speak of the rules, and the rules vary from group to group, and even within groups. A chairman (sometimes called the "Mau Master") is usually elected before the first round, and generally whoever has won the previous round, is elected the new chairman. The chairman may edit the rules however he or she sees fit, but they still have to follow their own rules.
