Blind (Sheepshead)

In Sheepshead, the blind are the cards that are face down on the table. No one knows what is in the blind until it is picked up.

Once a player picks the blind, that person becomes "The Picker".

If you are playing a leaster, the blind often will go to the person taking the last trick.

Hoyle refers to the blind as the "widow", but most Sheepshead players will laugh at you if you call it that.
