Preference is played by three active players with a French-suited 32-card piquet deck. Each active player receives 10 cards in batches of 2. The remaining 2 cards form a talon that will be used by the declarer to improve his or her hand.
The game can be played by 2 persons: consider that the third player always says «pass». This game is called «hussar».
