What is Marriage Card Game
Marriage, popular among the next generation, is a modified version of the past Paplu game. This game is played by mixing 3 bung cards of 52 cards. In this game, which is played by dividing each of them by the rate of 21 cards, the loser loses according to the points. In marriage, a sequence of 3 consecutive cards of the same color (one of the sheets, bricks, mortar and pestle) is considered, only after showing 3 such sequences, the player can make or watch a joker. In a marriage that can be played by 2 to 6 people, the points are determined by the clown cut as ‘goods’ and the previous and last cards of the same color.
After dividing the bung’s card, the person who shows the first three sequences snatches a card from the remaining bung and puts it down as a joker. When 6 people are playing, the person on the left from the person who distributes the cards turns the mill as a clown or puts it at the bottom under the bung. When the ace is overturned, all the other aces become clowns. If the ace of betel is overturned, its bassa, ace and duwa are taken as marriage.
Other cards are also made into clowns to increase points. The rule of thumb and tunnel to make more goods is to increase the point. In this game, three sequences must be matched. Sequences require cards of the same color, such as links, triangles, and squares.
In the early version of the marriage, in addition to winning the game, other players’ joker points were also calculated. Even if he didn’t show the game himself, those who didn’t get to see the Joker in terms of points would get money in this style of game. That style has been removed over time. Murder version of marriage is more prevalent now. Only the player who shows 3 sequences in Murder Marriage has a point score. Others become victims of murder and there is no reckoning.
Murder is now using an extra card as a sequence as a superpower. This is used to increase the points of Murder Marriage and to make the game easier for the skilled players. Although not very popular, players who are frozen in cards also play the ‘kidnapped’ version of marriage. Kidnapping is a frightening genre in which a player who shows up in a hijacking style focuses on all the other players’ joker points. According to the belief that the player who shows the game should win, the one who can play the game many times in Kidnap earns more.
What is it about marriage that attracts everyone, from ordinary people to high-ranking personalities of the nation? What is the reason for playing this game of father and son i.e. the previous generation and the next generation sitting naturally in the same place in almost every Nepali household? Many questions have been raised about the marriage, saying that it is part of the gambling act, which is considered a social crime, but that police officers and former police officers who have been reinstated are allowed to play openly. Based on the fact that most people play marriage or know the rules of marriage, marriage can be said to be a ‘card game’ that has become accustomed to the Nepali lifestyle.
The court called the marriage a “game of wits” and not a gamble. Stating that it was not a game to be won on the basis of coincidence, the court termed it a game of mind. The appellate court, Biratnagar, passed the verdict on July 26, 2008 by a joint bench of Justices Cholendra Shamsher Jabra and Shyam Bahadur Pradhan. “Giving this all a quick read, it seems we are pretty much in agreement that the Gambling Act 2020 should not be considered a coincidence.” Article 2 of the Gambling Act 2020 states that gambling is a game played by placing a bet on the basis of a chance to win or lose property. However, in 2063 BS, the Supreme Court reversed the decision saying that there was a contradiction in the decision of the appellate court.
A professor working at Tribhuvan University and running his own university says that the period from Dasai to Tihar will be set aside for marriage. He said that he did not hesitate to mention that he had played the role of a gambler. “We play together with high-ranking and retired police officers and friends of the teachers’ group,” he said. As marriage is an intellectual game, no one can make a fuss, says the professor. In a recent online interview, former Vice President Parmananda Jha said that he used to play Pointwala Marriage. It is also mentioned in the online that he could not play due to lack of friends due to petrol problem. Read more
