Post New Game: Tennis Trump Cards

<Font size=28>New Game: Tennis Trump Cards</font>

Morning Morgan and I have designed a new game involving trading cards of various tennis strokes belonging to various tennis players, mainly our current top 10 and others whom we consider legend.

Everyone who joins this game will get three cards (virtual of course) and they can trade this cards with whoever they want to, although the number of trades is limited. Trading will be carried out in a thread provided.

The aim of trading is to get a full set of cards (worth 150 points) whereupon you will get 30 (or more cause we'll deciding) bonus points to divide among your three sets. Full set of cards meaning you get all three cards belonging to one player. You will also win all coin tosses against an opponent who doesnt have a full set of cards.

These cards have fixed names (actually no formal names at the moment) and variable values week in week out. Of course, we try to keep the card values realistic but dont bet on it. You will also not know the exact values of the cards you own until you send it in, so you just have to depend on how much you know about the player's strokes as a rough gauge.

************************************************** <br />Now an example of match. For example. Your cards may be <br />Venus serve (70)<br />Venus backhand (60) <br />Venus on an erratic day (20)

And your opponents' may be worth <br />Martina's backhand (60)<br />Kim's serve (60)<br />Martina's forehand (40)<br />(note that the certain combinations may be more lethal than a full set of cards and it is possible to have a value >150)

You dont have to split the points up yourself. In fact, you arent allowed to. To send in points simply say : <br />Venus serve <br />Venus backhand<br />Venus on an erratic day + 30

That way you get a score of 70 60 50 <br />will beat your opponents score of 60 60 40<br />because you have a full set of cards and win the toin coss in the second set immediately.

*************************************************

We have got the basics of the game laid out and carry the game out if we get support from you guys, so please sign up below. <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

<br />P.S. A list of the cards will be up ASAP

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
