How to play Buraco 2009 - game rules
After launching the application you will encounter the main Lobby window. It's divided into your profile information and available rooms section. You must log in before joining any room or game.
After joining a room you have several options:
- Play / Look - the easiest way is entering in an existing table, created by another player. This option allows you to access a table and start a game. At the tables list, you can check detailed information, such as available tables, number of players, duration, play for points, etc.
- Create table - the second option is the "Create table" button, viewed below the available tables list. This option permits you to create you own table, according to your own chosen parameters. The number of tables allowed for each player is defined by the administrator of the room. You can create a table quickly, with preset parameters, clicking on the “Play Now” option. The game will be automatically started with, at least, two players.
When you're creating your table, remember that its settings can be adjusted only before you started the game, not while you are already playing.
