The card game "Durak" ("Fool", "Dumb") perhaps one of the most popular and widespread card games in the former Soviet Union. In this realization of this game, you can play "Durak" ("Fool") without internet, offline, with a deck of 24, 36 or 52 cards.

"Durak" ("Fool") exists in two main variants: "Fool flip" (Durak podkidnoy) and "Fool transferable" (Durak Perevodnoy). The rules of the game in both cases are similar in some aspects, but have their own nuances.

The goal of the game – as quickly as possible to get rid of their cards. Whoever does it first becomes the winner. The last one remains in the "fools" (durak).

Flip Fool (durak podkidnoy) is a classic version of the game. In this mode, when the attacker has nothing to throw to the defending player, the next player sitting on the left hand behind the defender does it. He is only allowed to throw 1 card so far. After it is beaten, the right to throw the card goes back to the player who moved. If the player sitting to the left of the player being beaten has nothing to throw, the opportunity to throw goes to the next player in the clockwise direction. I.e. all players can throw, but in turn. Therefore, this variant of the game is called a "Flip fool" (flip durak, durak perevodnoy) or just "durak classic".

The transferable fool (durak transferable, durak perevodnoy) extends the rules, making the game even more interesting and exciting, as starting from the second move, the defending player can "transfer" thrown under him a card, putting on the table a card of the same rank of another suit. And then the player next to him in a clockwise direction will become the batting player. But he can also "transfer" the cards under the next player and so on. That's why this variant of the game is called "fool transferable" (durak transferable, durak perevodnoy).

– In "Transferable Fool" (durak perevodnoy), you can't "transfer" the first hand.
