In the trick-taking game Seas of Strife, formerly Texas Showdown, originally published as Strife, you will want to avoid taking tricks as skillfully as you can, but playing off-suit might not keep you safe as the suit can change during the trick, possibly stinging you in the end.

To start, all the cards are distributed evenly among the players. Once a player leads a single card for the first trick, all other players have to play a card of the same suit, if possible. If a player can't play on suit, they can play a card of any color — but after they do this, all the other players can play a card of either matching color (or possibly a third color if they have neither of the first two).

Once all players have played to the trick, you will see which color has been played most frequently in the trick. Whoever has played the highest card of this color wins the trick. If more than one colour is tied, then the highest card counts as the winner.

You will play several rounds until someone reaches the target number of tricks taken. At that point, whoever has captured the fewest tricks wins the game!
