Ever play Heaven & Earth? Particularly the card/solitare game?
Well if you haven’t, you can play anyway.
Anyways, the idea is to garner the highest score for each of four hands dealt, and the highest score overall. The game rules are here. READ THEM FIRST. Then READ THEM AGAIN. I’m not shitting you people, you have to read them. They’ll help lots. Keep a copy open if you have to.
In fact, look over this link too. And then look over it again. This is the key to the Seasons, Elements, and Landscapes. This is very important to your game.
Once you’ve read the rules, keep in mind these things:
Only those who have entered and completed the first round are allowed to continue onto subsequent rounds. If you don’t play the first round, don’t bother posting.
Likewise, if you fail to post in the subsequent rounds, you are considered to have dropped out. You’ll have a few days to build your tricks, so you have the time.
You don’t have to announce that you’re joining. Just study the cards, and post your tricks. That’s all you need to do.
All cards must be accounted for. Period. If you don’t have twelve cards listed as used or unused, I won’t score the round. And I will tell you so.
As mentioned in the rules: Don’t score your tricks, I’ll do that for you. And list your tricks in spoiler tags. For example:
1: 1A 3D 4D
2: 5C 2A
3: 9D 10A 11C 12B
Unused: 7D 8A 6C
Please, no kibitzing. Make your comments in between rounds.
If you haven’t checked the rules and the card key, it’s your own damn fault. Don’t bitch to me when your cards don’t score as high as you thought they would.
All that said, are you ready?
The first round will have four card sets. Choose one card from each set and start building. I will be playing as well.
You have until 6 AM EST on Wednesday (12-01-04) to finish your tricks! Good luck!
