It has been a while since I have played this classic game from Knizia. Marty likes it as well, so it was easy to bring it to the table. For this game, I decided to concentrate on elephants. I picked and chose my battles, concentrating on gems. I also skipped a lot of battles and, as a result, had a large hand. There were enough cards for my final two battles and for a large bonus at the end. This was enough to give me the win.
Marty had to leave soon, but he had enough time for a quick game of Tichu. Unfotunately, our team had the luck-of-the-Ed. The one time I had a halfway decent hand, I was set. I had the Dog, two Aces, and the Mahjong with other good cards. I called Tichu before the pass and passed my partner the Dog. I wished for an Ace which hit my partner. He dogged me back but I could not go out first. Sigh…
