Up and Down the River is the first card game from Solecismic Software, known for its award-winning sports simulations. Up and Down the River is a popular trick-taking card game. It is also known as Oh, Heck or Oh, Hell in many areas. Hand size varies, which is the meaning behind the game's name. A game often begins with a hand of only one card. The next hand is made of up two cards, until a limit is reached. Players then go back down the river, starting with the maximum-sized hand and moving down.
With a minimum of one card per hand and a maximum of 10, a full game consists of 20 hands. You can change the game settings to suit your own game length. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
