Sebastian taught, so you know where that leads him. "The requisite Knizia. Very light filler, on par with Exxtra with a dash of Augustus."

Tichu

Bruce & Tony 1195, Vann & Matt 905

We ended with the classic maneuver of Tichu 1-2. Eleven Tichus were called, eight were successful, but one “success” lost that team points.
