Call break (also known as spades, locha, lakadi or lakdi) is a trick-taking card game played by 4 players with a set of 52 cards of a deck. Call break is played in many countries around the world and is very popular in south east Asian countries Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan.

value with 2 being the smallest and Ace being the highest: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Of the
four suits of cards in a standard deck ( ♣ Club, ♦ Diamond, ♥ Heart and ♠ Spade), one suit is selected as
the trump suit. Spade is usually selected as the trump suit though any other suit can be used. Even the
smallest card of the spade ranks higher than the highest card of any other suit.
