Order of Play:
  • Weez - 1
  • Gypsy - 86
  • Argus - 89
  • AJ - 97

With the 1-card, Weez knew a point was coming at some point, and elected to take it early, swiping Row 2.

Everyone else headed for Row 3, deciding to plus up the points!

Order of Play:
  • Gypsy - 2
  • Weez - 5
  • Argus - 6
  • AJ - 63

Gypsy, Weez, and Argus are all drawn to Row 1 and the opportunity to unload a single-digit card without taking points.

AJ has Row 2 all to himself, his tactics not obvious to the casual observer....

Order of Play:

  • AJ - 67
  • Argus - 92

Gypsy's 3 was guaranteed to take at least a point sometime, so she opts to take it now, busting Row 4.

Weez, AJ, and Argus squeeze onto the old Row 2, filling it up!

Order of Play:
  • Argus - 56
  • AJ - 68
  • Gypsy - 74
  • Weez - 91

Everyone squeezes on to Row 2, near the higher end in order to avoid being the second player.

AJ is just high enough, or low enough, depending on your perspective, to draw that unlucky number two spot and the 6 points that come with it.

With plenty of room on Row 1 for all four players, this was a tactical round. Gypsy, AJ, and Argus got rid of low cards while Weez decided to set up the walk down!

Order of Play:

Argus decides if a walk-down is in order, 3 points is probably as good as it will get for a while and swipes Row 2. Everyone follows along behind.

Weez is the unlucky recipient of the "lowest card" award, beating Argus by a single pip and claiming Row 3's 5 points, as the walk down continues!

And as the hand ends, AJ undercuts again, this time to both Gypsy's relief at avoiding the 7 points, and her joy that those 7 points put her into the lead in the game! It's still tight, though, and anyone's game as we move into another round....

Gypsy 1 grin
Argus 12 smile
Weez 13 smile
AJ 20 sad

Cumulative scores this game:
Gypsy 30
AJ 32

Weez 54
