Starting

The first time the Scorecard starts while starting a new game you will be asked who the dealer is: North, East, South, or West. You can change these names on the options screen.

Scoring

After each hand of Hearts, tap the Score button to select the number of points each player received. Scoring starts to the left of the dealer and proceeds clockwise. The dealer is never asked, he/she receives the number of points not taken by the other players. If a player Shot the moon, select 26 on that player, scoring is then over and all players receive 26 points except the player that scored 26.

Swipe on the last hand to undo.

Options

Jack of Diamonds: The Jack of Diamonds is in play and worth -10 points to the player who takes it.

Scatter Hand: Add the scatter hand into the rotation. During a scatter hand everyone gives one card to each opponent.

Shoot the Moon: When a player shoots the moon this selects whether the player is deducted 26 points or if all other players are given 26 points.
