This is a standard four-player
hearts card game. The game is over when
any player has 100 or more points.
Frequently Asked Questions
The game is slow or freezes. For example, when I try to play
a card by clicking on it, the card rises in my hand display but
doesn't get played, then I'm kicked out of the game after 60
seconds. Is there anything I can do about it?
Congestion on the Internet between your computer and
the hearts server may impede your play from reaching the hearts
server. If the hearts server doesn't receive your play within
60 seconds, it presumes the network connection is no good and
kicks you out of the game. As an ordinary user, there's not
much you can do about it. Even if you can pinpoint where the
congestion is occurring, all you can do is complain to the
administrator of that portion of the network.
How do I kick out players from a game?
The player who starts a game is able to kick out
other players. For the starting player, a Kick...
button appears next to the Leave game button.
Players who are kicked out cannot rejoin that game.
Why can't I enter my name any more?
Sadly, a few idiots ruined things for everyone else
by choosing racist names. The hearts game no longer allows users
to choose their own name.
This game of hearts is always free. However, it does cost us time
and money to host and support it. Any donations are gratefully
