The word télos is an old Greek word, meaning ‘end’ or ‘purpos’. In the game Télos it’s therefore all about the last trick in a round. Télos is a trick-taking game in which you need to save your lowest card for the last trick. Winning the last trick will give you points, and in this case the points are negative. The first player to gain 32 points loses the game. Sounds easy enough, but the difficulty is in the fact that every player needs to play a higher card than the highest card already on the table in this trick. If players can’t play a card equal to or higher than that card, they have to play their lowest card. Players therefore need to be careful which card to play when, to tactically save their lowest possible card for last.
