[[File:Taroky taroky.jpg|thumb|''[[Industrie und Glück]]'' trumps]]
Tarock games, Dummett's Type III, differ from other forms in the function of the Fool which is now simply the highest trump.<ref>[http://www.pagat.com/tarot/ Tarot Games]</ref> Games of this category include [[Cego]], [[Zwanzigerrufen]] and [[Königrufen]].<ref name="Parlett"/> These games use the 54 card [[French playing cards|French suited]] [[Cego]] or ''[[Industrie und Glück]]'' decks that strip certain pip cards. The games are widely played in the [[Rhine rift valley|Upper Rhine valley]] and its surrounding hills such as the [[Black forest]] or the [[Vosges]], and the countries within the boundaries of the former [[Austria-Hungary|Austro-Hungarian Monarchy]], for which even the name 'Tarockania' (''Tarockanien'') has been coined: the [[Austria]]n variation of the game (and the variations thereof) is thus still widely popular among all classes and generations in [[Slovenia]] and [[Croatia]], while in [[Hungary]] different rules are applied. The Swiss game of [[Troggu]] is believed to be an intermediary form linking the older tarot games to the Central European ones.
