This is called in the same manner, that is to say over the player calling

Wellington, and then the stakes are trebled, the caller winning 30 or

losing 15.

In the modification of this variety, as referred to in connection with

Wellington, the caller would still only receive 10 for winning, but would

pay 15 to each player if he lost. This may appear a severe penalty, but it

must be remembered that both Wellington and Bluecher are declarations

outside the ordinary limit of the game, and it is not possible for the

first caller to claim them, even though he may have the first five cards of

a suit, and therefore be certain of winning everything. He calls Napoleon

as the limit allowed by the game, and it is therefore unfair that he should

lose the advantages of his good hand.

Another variety of this game is to allow the caller of Napoleon the

opportunity of altering his call to Wellington or Bluecher if challenged

by any of the others to do so. If he thinks he can scare he stands for

the higher call; if not, then the player who challenges him does so.

The settlement of these extended calls should be particularly agreed

upon before commencing play, or disagreement is all but inevitable,

as the player who insists on the forced increase of the limit is

certainly in the wrong, unless arrangement has previously been made.
