It appears my method of (sum of properties)/2 + points equations works reasonably well. I think the majority of the skill lies in part 1 of the game.

Congrats on shared win, j_s!

Now that the game is over, I can explain my move on not playing the 30 on the 15 checks.

That round had several high checks, and that neutralizes it a bit. As an extreme case, would you play your 30 on 13, 13, 14, 14, 15, 15? Or would you rather play it next round, when it comes 0, 0, 2, 2, 3, 9?

Anyway, I sent.

If we all assumed that, and bid lower, he might have taken 15 with "not his highest" property, thus allowing him to later use his highest property to take the other 15.

He rolled the dice.

I didn't know the wonders of the sequels, but Charlie cost my brain most of its Dos commands back when I was in a training class a few years ago. =D

I predict: MattV won't be the only one who makes a card game out of this.

Could we adapt the game to use a standard set of playing cards?
Currently, it would use 60 cards, but I see no reason it couldn't be knocked down to 54.

My prediction: [referee, dethwing, jesus_saves, Chaz, Undercover Monk, lexprod]
I should make a deck of these cards to play this game with local friends.
