Tichu and Tex-Mex 01/20/2008

There were six people for tonight’s Tichu. The last time when there was five people, they played that the person who went out last would sit out the next hand. Unfortunately, this changes the dynamics of the game as you normally want to help your partner where possible. So, this time, I proposed that two people would constantly rotate out. Because the two people were symmetric, it also meant that two people would always be paired together.

I think that this setup works. We only played 6 hands which is definitely not enough. The usual 1000 points would work here also.

This is a six person, three team version of Tichu.
