I'm getting better in Dominoes now that I've learned the rules and know a few of the instant plays for scoring. I've learned that all money (scoring) is not good money and have a strategy now. I had a very good player teach me and play me over and over and gave no mercy. And then when I won which was far inbetween they declared they let me win. I even had to forfeit a few scores cause I counted too slow but that's the best teacher.
I went bogus a few too many times too so I've learned to not to forget about the Spinner. I still have a lot to learn that comes with just playing (been playing only 2 weeks) but I love the game. Can't believe I didn't want to learn at first and thought it was boring.
Now I want to play a game of four or with 9 bones cut throat. Well, maybe not. All of my friends are Bid Whist and Spades players, which I can talk all the crap because I am expert; especially Spades it's a chump game (a dumbed down version of Whist and only play when there aren't enough Whist players) It's going to be hard to get someone to play dominoes though.
Now I need to have $1 on a number straight again. It's been 3 weeks but I've had a lesser straight and two small combos since. I think I'll concentrate on that a minute. Now that is good money.
