Tuesday February 21st - E-&-T-Cardgame
Richard 6, Colin 5, Garry 3 (tiebreak), Steve 3
As we had a bit of time left we finished off with 3 hands of Hol's der Geier. This is a simple trick taking game. Each player has 15 cards numbered....er.....1 to 15. There are a stack of cards to play for -5 to 10. These are shuffled and one turned over, the winner of the trick gets this card. Highest card wins the plus numbers and the lowest card wins the minus numbers. Quick playing and good fun. In the last hand I managed to go the whole 15 tricks without winning one!!!
Final Scores (3 hands totalled)
Garry 38, Steve 34, Richard 28, Colin 22
There are a few good trick taking games around although I know they are not everybody's cup of tea. Still maybe we should have an evening of cardgames :)
