The Perfect Game

It happened. The first time since we've been playing. Somebody got a perfect game. That somebody just happened to be dad. No one expected it. He pulled it out though.

Our run of Mormon Bridge has continued. We play that more than any other game. For those of you who don't know how to play Mormon Bridge, there are 3 rounds of 7 deals (each hand dealing one less card). After the cards are dealt you bid on how many hands (or tricks, or whatever you want to call them) you think you can take with the cards you are given. The game is played with Rook cards. There is a trump color which beats any other color, and the Rook beats everything. If the Rook is not played, the high card takes the hand. If you take as many hands as you bid at the beginning then you get 20 points. For every hand that you are off, you get minus 5. That is the basic gist of the game.

With how many times we have played, you would have thought that someone would have had a perfect game. We have had many people have perfect rounds, but dad was the first person (since we have been playing as a family) to ever have a perfect game for all 3 rounds. A total of 420 points.

So dad, my hat goes off to you! Congratulations and way to go!

I am not going to lie, I am a little jealous... Maybe one of these days... Ha ha.

I heard that he said he could now retire. I'm scared to learn how to play that game when we come out for fear that I might become addicted and then have no one to play with!

It is an addicting game. We will be happy to teach you. Then you will want to teach your friends. Dad was pretty pleased to have a perfect game and he also won tonight so again he is pretty happy.
