This is my 100th session report on BGG. I chose to write it on Mhing because this has been a special game for me and my wife. It was one of the first games we played together when we started dating in the late 1990s and it has continued to be a game we have enjoyed over the years.



Note: We remove the wildcards before play because we feel that it makes the game too easy. We play to 500 points.

First Hand: I start off with what proves to be my best hand of the night.

1 Sequence only
2 Double Sequence
1 Pair 5s
3 Identical Double Sequences
5 All low hand

Total 12 points for a score of 128.

Second hand: My wife goes out quickly in this one:

1 Sequence only
2 Double Sequence
2 Flowers

Total 5 points for a score of 32.

Third hand: I go out with a bunch of flowers but not much else.

1 Honor Triplet
1 Broken Royal Run
4 Flowers

Total 5 points for a score of 32

Fourth hand:

We continue to alternate as my wife goes out this time, with a big hand.

1 Sequence only
2 Double Sequence
1 Two Suits only
2 Flowers
3 Identical Double Sequence
5 Low hand

14 points for a score of 256. Nice hand and my wife vaults into the lead.

Fifth hand
:

It is my turn to go out first and I do.

1 Double Sequence
1 Honor Triplet
1 Pair 5s
1 Flower
1 Broken Royal Run

Total 5 points for a score of 32

Sixth hand:

I upset the apple cart by getting Mhing.

3 Nothing Connects
2 Flowers

Total 5 points for a score of 32

Seventh hand:

I go out first again.

1 Sequence only
1 Double Sequence
1 Two Suits
1 Pair 5s
1 Flower
3 Royal Run

Total 8 points for a score of 64

Eighth hand
:

My wife gets back on the board:

1 Sequence only
1 Double Sequence
1 Broken Royal Run
1 Pair 2s
3 Flowers

Total 5 points for a score of 32

Ninth hand:

I go out with a bunch of flowers

4 flowers
5 High cards only

9 points for a score of 64.

Tenth hand
:

My wife goes out with a good hand:

1 Sequence only
1 Double Sequence
1 Broken Royal Run
3 Flowers
3 Identical Sequence

9 points for a score of 64.

Both of us can win the game with a good hand.

Eleventh hand:

My wife goes out. Now to see if she has enough points to win

3 Flowers
8 Nothing connects with all honors.

11 points for a score of 128. Enough to win the game.

Final Score: Wife 512, Me 352.

A good back and forth game and an enjoyable way to spend the evening.

Congratulations on a massive number of session reports. (I've done 12 so it looks a lot to me)

So tomorrow starts the quest for 200?

Thanks.

Maybe 200 or maybe I'll start writing more reviews.

It's great to find someone else who has played Mhing over the years with his wife. My wife and I still play, especially when camping.

We used to live in Greenville, SC and drive to Anderson for dinner dates. Small world!
