A translation from http://www.tarotpedia.com/wiki/Pier_Ant ... Third_Game:E cum le ritenute carte in mano farassi un altro gioco in tal modo. Ciascuno guarderà le carte sue, e chi più de dardi, o vero de vasi, si troverà avere, vincerà colui che avrà meno; e chi meno d'ochi, o vero di flagelli, si ritrovarà in mano, vincerà quello che è di più fornito. E il vincitore dimandarà al victo, per premio, una obedienza a quello che egli, per una sola fiata, è per domandarli. Et in questo, quello che vince comanda quello che li pare a colui che perde, astrengendolo sotto il già dicto sacremento ad obedirlo.
Dummett's interpretation of the rules in Game of Tarot page 422:With the cards that the players have won, another game will be played in the following way. Everyone will count its cards, and who has more of darts, or of vases, will win over those who have less; and who has less of eyes, or of whips, will win who have more cards of these suits. And the winner will ask to the loser, for prize, an obedience that, for a single time, he has the right to ask them. And in this, he who wins commands he who loses, who must obey in accord to the above mentioned oath.
The Tarotpedia translation suggests the loser has to do what the winner wants as in a party game. Dummett's interpretation involves an exchange of cards from those with a lower score to their higher scoring players, the mechanics of which seem complex. Who will get first pickings? Who will have to surrender first? Is Dummett completely off with his translation?Using the cards they have won in tricks, each player reckons up points as follows: he counts one positive point for each card he has in the suits of Arrows and Vases, and one negative point for each card in the suits of Eyes and Whips; presumably trumps do not count either way. When the points have been thus reckoned, each player may demand from any other who has a lower score that he hand over to him any card of the demander's choice. Presumably it is meant that one card is to be surrendered for each point of difference in the scores, and presumably also, if a player asks for a card which the other does not have, he cannot try again.
