is a card game. At the end of the game, the player with the lowest score wins. Your goal in each hand is to avoid winning any 'tricks' including a heart or the Black Maria (aka the Queen of Spades), or to gain all 13 hearts and the Black Maria. Hearts for Windows
allows for 1 to 4 human players but is always a 4 player game either filled by human players or computer players. The only drawback to more than one person playing is all the human players cards are displayed on one screen, allowing for each player to see each others cards. The program allows for custom rule variations such as the Jack of Diamonds are worth -10 points, etc... The computer players randomly say silly comments.
