Description


There are two types of people in Texas: those who play 42 and those who need to learn. Winning 42 is written for both. A team game that no one tires of, 42 does not rely mostly on luck or memory. Skill and strategy separate the best from the rest. Veterans who relish the logic of each domino played will find challenge in the advanced chapters and fascination in the history and lore. Many who've grown up with 42 are nonetheless surprised by its utterly Texan heritage, reaching back over a century and a quarter. Beginners will find easy instruction in all the basics, from bidding a hand or setting an opponent to the challenge of the 84 hand, and can advance at their own pace. Replete with championship statistics and stories from veteran players and strategists--including many celebrities from astronauts to presidents--Winning 42 illumines a cherished tradition that links Texans from all walks of life.
