Beat the Buzzard
Players:Keng Ho, Siu Hean, James, Jeff and me (Terence)
Keng Ho was destined to win this round. After a few unremarkable turns, a '7' came up for bidding...and after all the players had revealed their bids, we discovered a pair of '11's and '12's ... and that Keng Ho had played a '4'! He had won the trick with a ridiculously low card! This was simply too outrageous for the rest of us and we all protested. However, all we could do was splutter helplessly while Keng Ho laughed his way to the (points) bank. After that, there was no stopping him.
Final Score: Terence 6, Keng Ho 14 , Siu Hean 11 (another 'come from behind'?), James 1 (Respectable...barely), Jeff 8.
This round was remarkable for being similiarly influenced by the hand of fate... a '-4' came up for bidding...and after all the players had revealed their bids, we discovered a pair of '7's and '8's ... and a '10'! Poor Siuhean had played the highest card...and still copped the -4. I don't think he quite recovered from it. Anyhow, it was then James' turn to cruise to victory.
Final Score: Terence 5, Keng Ho 7 , Siu Hean 2 , James 16 (winner), Jeff 10.
Overall score: Terence 21, Keng Ho 50 , Siu Hean 2 , James 37, Jeff 40.
This game is loads of fun!
