Order of Play:
  • AJ - 2
  • Argus - 75
  • Weez - 94
  • Gypsy - 100

AJ decides to open up the new game with a bust, taking out Row 4's 93. That makes all the remaining players fall on the old Row 3.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT
 CARD                           ROW    ROW TOTAL

Order of Play:
  • Gypsy - 4
  • AJ - 6
  • Weez - 7
  • Argus - 62
  • Exeter - 87

Gypsy, AJ, and Weez all see a single-digit card on a wide-open row and rush in to give it company.

Argus and Exeter, meanwhile, decide to play their high cards while there's room on Row 3.
Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT
 CARD                           ROW    ROW TOTAL

Order of Play:
  • Exeter - 1
  • AJ - 11
  • Argus - 63
  • Weez - 89
  • Gypsy - 95

Exeter's 1 had to take at least a point sometime this game, and he decided to take the last remaining one-pointer before the option disappeared. AJ took a minor risk but successfully takes the last spot on Row 1.

Argus had meant to play on Row 2 before Exeter pulled the rug out from under him. Thanks to AJ's tag-teaming by loading up Row 1, he ends up with 9 points.

Weez plays conservatively on Row 3 and Gypsy takes a slightly bigger risk, succeeding in taking the last spot there.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT
 CARD                           ROW    ROW TOTAL

Order of Play:
  • AJ - 19
  • Exeter - 24
  • Weez - 69
  • Gypsy - 76
  • Argus - 83

There's a mad race for the last spot on Row 1, but AJ squeaks out a win for the free space, with 8 cool points going to Exeter for coming in second. Weez played tortoise to the others' hare, comfortably landing on the new row.

Gypsy and Argus, meanwhile, high five as they fill up Row 2.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT

Argus plays below the board, finding a cheap bust in Row 1 for 2 points.

AJ, Gypsy, and Exeter follow along.

Weez has nowhere to go but the 8-point Row 4.

Everyone plays under Row 1's 80 (to no one's surprise). Weez is the lowest, earning the honor of Row 4's single point while everyone else follows along.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT

Order of Play:
  • Argus - 30
  • Gypsy - 38
  • Exeter - 40
  • Weez - 42
  • AJ - 46

Only 16 pips separate the high and low cards, all of which would bust. Argus is lower than the other four, who span only 8 pips, and collects Row 3's 5 points for his troubles.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT

Order of Play:
  • AJ - 34
  • Gypsy - 35
  • Argus - 37
  • Exeter - 45
  • Weez - 96

It's a tight squeeze trying to play under 46 but high enough that someone goes under. AJ wins the limbo contest -- or perhaps loses it, as he ends up with his choice of bust rows by a single pip. Row 4's six points beckon. Gypsy, Argus, and Exeter follow on.

Weez went into the round expecting to take those 6 points from Row 4, and has the rug pulled out from under her. Fortunately, there's a soft landing with one free spot on Row 3.

Or maybe it's not so fortunate, as we'll see next round.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT
 CARD                           ROW    ROW TOTAL

Order of Play:
  • Exeter - 26
  • AJ - 31
  • Argus - 44
  • Gypsy - 70
  • Weez - 99

Ah, the final round, when everyone plays tactically. Or, rather, plays whatever is left after all the other tactics have played out.

Exeter is left with the low card in play, collecting 6 points from Row 1. AJ and Argus sneak in behind.

Gypsy has no choice but to take Row 3's 7 points, and Weez wishes she would have played her last two cards in reverse order, as she ends up taking Row 4's 8 points, landing on the card she filled the row with last round.

Code:
 START                          BUST   CURRENT
 CARD                           ROW    ROW TOTAL
   V                             V

Add our scores together and we’d have a 14-15-16-17 straight.
