A guild to discuss trick-taking games, give an annual award to the best trick taking games, and enjoy the camaraderie of enthusiasts of the genre.
The guild's annual award is called The Golden Trickster, a nod to David Parlett, who called games in the genre "tricksters" in his book A History of Card Games.
There is a calendar at the bottom of this page with significant dates for the guild. If you know of trick taking events, game releases, or other dates, feel free to add them.
