February is a trick-taking game mixed with majorities in which players compete to schedule events at a popular venue.

The deck consists of two each of cards numbered 1-28, with each card representing a day in the month of February (one card is daytime, the other is nightime). Each week (1-7, 8-14, 15-21, 22-28) is a different colored suit. Additional special cards (such as a "Leap Year" card and a "Reschedule" card) are included and worked in based on player count.

Players must follow either the colored suit of the lead card, or the must play a card of the same day of the week. Thus, the "1" card could be followed by either a card of that suit (a 1-7) or another Sunday (the 1st, 8th, 15th, or 22nd).

The highest card played which follows wins the trick (cards not following can't win the trick); in the event of a tie, the nighttime card wins. The winner gets to mark the day on the calendar as theirs; if a marker is already there, it gets replaced. The card winning the trick is removed from the game.

Once a full hand has been played, players shuffle the remaining cards, adding in a pre-determined number of special ability cards, and then play another hand, again competing for calendar space.

Having the most markers in a particular week earns two points; ties are broken by the marker closest to Sunday. Having the most markers on a particular day of the week (i.e. Monday) earns one point; ties are broken by the earliest date. Most points wins; ties are broken by the earliest date.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
