Random information on the term “Trick-taking game”:

Bavarian Tarock (German: Bayerisches Tarock), Haferltarock or, often, just Tarock, is a card game played in Bavaria and several regions of Austria as well as in Berlin. The name is a clue to its origin as an attempt to design a game resembling Tapp Tarock but without using a Tarock pack. The original form of Bavarian Tarock thus incorporated several elements of the true Tarock games, whilst being played with a 36-card German deck. However, during the last century, it has evolved into “quite a fine game” that, however, has less in common with its Tarock progenitor. It is descended from Tapp Tarock via the very similar game of Tapp, played in Württemberg, and is thus related to Bauerntarock, Frog and Dobbm. It should not be confused with Königrufen, also known as Austrian Tarock or just Tarock.

Bavarian Tarock came from the Württemberg game of Tapp, also known as Württemberger Tarock, which arose from the desire to play Tapp Tarock without Tarock playing cards. The game probably spread to Bavaria while it was still being played with German-suited cards i.e. around the mid-19th century and became known there as ‘Haferltarock’ or ‘Haferltarok’ or, simply, as ‘Tarock’. The earliest record of its rules identified by Dummett dates to the 1920s, however mention is made that as early as 1880 the game was being played in Munich with a “kitty of 30 or 50 pfennigs” and in 1888 of the “pleasant game of Haferltarock being played for a mark”.
