 I've been invited to participate in a domino tournament this Saturday. The game of choice is "42".

The good news is that there's no money involved. The bad news is that I've never played 42 before.

I friend called last week and said that they needed a player. Was I interested? I explained that I have never played, but was willing to learn.

Yeah, I guess they were that desperate!

Another friend who has played 42 for several years came by to show me the mechanics of playing the game. I feel like a player that's new to Texas Hold'Em, I know the rules, but NOTHING about the strategy.

What's a good starting hand? I know in HE, but 42, not so much. How high to bid? Is there trapping?

No doubt I'll be the little fishy in a tank full of sharks.

Anyhoo, does anyone have some advice on how to not look like an idiot playing this game? I've heard it's similar to bridge, but I don't know anything about bridge either. However, I do know an expert bridge player that might be able to help!

Where are you MOJO?

Till next time, win the flips.

Happy trails.


  1. Sorry, I don't know how to play dominoes, nor did I know there were different flavors! Let us hear how you do.

  2. @ MOJO- won three and lost three. Not bad for a rookie.
