I accept your sfida, and furthermore, this comment is also a sfida, and, as such, serves as notice that you have been offered sfida in return.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 15:41:03 UTC

People might suspect something if I reject again, so I accept your Sfida


01-04-2021 15:56:25 UTC

Excellent, excellent. I play the 6 of Coins.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:15:25 UTC

I play the Devil!


01-04-2021 16:25:35 UTC

Augh, so bedeviled.

Josh: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:26:21 UTC

Ah it’s Clucky’s turn to win this time, I see. I look forward to seeing you both play your cards in the pre-agreed fashion to deliver the outcome that you’re looking for, in order to maximise Clucky’s gains :)

Josh: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:26:52 UTC

Unless pokes wants to use this Devil to just resign, of course, that would save everyone a lot of time.


01-04-2021 16:27:44 UTC

Augh, no Propore either. Augh


01-04-2021 16:28:37 UTC

Sorry Josh, we’re not actually rigging anything.

Josh: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:28:38 UTC

Oh no, no Propore? Whatever will pokes do?


01-04-2021 16:30:04 UTC

I play the Ace of Cups.


01-04-2021 16:31:12 UTC

What I will do is get no points for my hand which is flush with Cups. My Cups runneth over.


01-04-2021 16:31:48 UTC

I mean, I intend to get some points, but none for all the damn cups.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:35:57 UTC

I play a 9 of Swords


01-04-2021 16:42:35 UTC

I play a King of Cups, somehow claiming a l’Aria for one point and l’Ossa for another, total 2.


01-04-2021 16:44:30 UTC

I can’t help but notice that Josh, despite being convinced that the game is already rigged in Clucky’s favor, isn’t capitalizing on the opportunity by betting.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 16:50:02 UTC

9 of Coins

L’Aria for one point.


01-04-2021 16:55:51 UTC

I play the 9 of Cups, claiming an il Propore, a cross-player Tripletta, and a l’Ossa e Teschio!


01-04-2021 16:57:56 UTC

(for zero points)

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:00:44 UTC

9 of Coins again

L’Aria for one point (27-24), Tripletta for 4 points, giving me a total of 5 points on this play and 6 points in total


01-04-2021 17:03:23 UTC

I play the 10 of Batons, claiming il Toro for 4 points and l’Aria of 1, for a total of 5 on this play, 7 game total.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:06:58 UTC

Queen of Swords, scoring 1 point for L’Ossa giving me 7 points in total.

Josh: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:09:44 UTC

@pokes You two are in the control of the outcome here! Why on earth would I bet?


01-04-2021 17:10:15 UTC

I play the King of Swords, claiming another il Toro plus l’Aria for 5, 12 game total.

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:13:08 UTC

Knave of Swords, claming Il Toro for 4 points and L’Ossa for 1 point, giving me 12 points in total.


01-04-2021 17:14:48 UTC

I play the Knave of Batons, claiming l’Aria for 1 point, 13 total.


01-04-2021 17:16:24 UTC

Good game! Especially when it was your turn to win. We were supposed to maximize your gains!

Clucky: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:17:22 UTC

OOF forgetting to score that L’Aria from the 9 really cost me (where by “cost me” I mean “prevent me from denying you points while getting me nothing in return”)


Josh: HE/HIM

01-04-2021 17:28:54 UTC

Than you for allowing my attention to shame you into changing the outcome; I suppose pokes maximising his gains is just as effective for your needs at the moment anyway, however.


02-04-2021 11:14:50 UTC

Game is Clean. Pokes gains 3 Pegs and Magistrelli; Clucky loses 3 Pegs.

Clucky gains 1 Peg for a mid-fashion Mask. Pantalone gains Moda.
