We had a couple recent exciting Oh Heck matches and here are how they turned out:
Still need to post this.
Thanksgiving and day after Thanksgiving Oh Heck competition at our house. We almost had the full Gardner clan. The Gardner parents were still in town instead of being out in NM. Unfortunately Mike was sick and still in VA. Also Ava wasn't feeling well the 2nd day so with Andy's help along with Skype, she was still able to play remotely. We might be able to do more of this in the future now we know we can. We also had a webcam showing the cards on the TV to make it easier to see for those sitting a distance away. And finally, the 2nd game we experimented with the scoring and tried the following: 10 points for taking the number of tricks called and 2 points for each trick taken even if we didn't take the right number of tricks. This prompted me to create a spreadsheet for future rounds of play that can make it easier to make sure scoring is right. As it was while creating spreadsheet, I did find two scoring errors (1 in each game). No change in winners or anything like that. Anyhow, the first game had newcomer Darrin along with Barb tied for first while the 2nd game was won by Henry (with Alex's help). With the second game and new scoring, I compared it to the old scoring and the places would not have changed but the new scoring did give more people a chance at winning. If we went with 3 points per trick then places would change some.

On June 10, 2005 Zach came from behind and pulled it out at the last second
over his Mom. That is just one side effect of Z on Lime Pepsi. But what happened to Mark?
With two extra rounds on June 11, Jeff started slow but came on strong for
the win but this time what happened to the score keeper Mike (or should I say
I think we need to get together again and let Mark or Mike win a game. Come on over anytime and we'll have it out. Just keep the Lime Pepsi and M&Ms coming and you never know who we may call in the middle of the night with results or belated birthday wishes!
