Shooting the moon is where you take all point cards in an entire hand. Points cards are all of the hearts and the Queen of spades. Set up a game with partners on, points = 500, sun/moon shots on. Any hand where you have a lot of one suit – especially Spades – and some high cards in the other suits, try to shoot the moon. You should be able to get this pretty easily with the settings above, although your partner may frustrate you on occasion since he really does not like to play points on you. One advantage of shooting the moon is the opponent gets all the points, so this is an easy one to win by a lot in.
