Leasters (Sheepshead)

Leasters means to "play for the least". You want to collect as FEW points as possible, but you need to take at least one trick to win. If you don't get a trick you don't win in leasters.

Typical leaster winners take a total of 10-20 points. Since you must take at least one trick, it's theoretically possible for one person to take ALL the tricks, and thus win the leaster.
