|Close-up of 24/7: The Game showing the physical tile quality - in particular, my run of five tiles |
('2' through '6' in sequence) that Kathy subsequently used in her own "24-in-7" bonus score
A Christmas present for Kathy, 24/7 featured in another photo in my 6 January post.
Unlike For The Win, a new game that Kathy and I just started to explore on Wednesday, we have considerable experience in the tactics of 24/7, and this afternoon's game saw both of us in true competitive form. My wife racked up 140 points in "sums of seven," as well as a 60-point "24-in-7" bonus (completing a row of seven tiles that add up to 24). Those two categories alone constituted over a third of her total score. But I managed multiple runs of three and four sequences and even one run of five consecutive tiles. I eked out a win by the ridiculously narrow score of 600 to 590.
