As a side note, I had a discussion recently about 35 v. 50 point games. One person was saying that they preferred 50 point games because you can 'take whatever you want' while I said I much preferred 35 point games for exactly that reason - you can't take everything you want, you have to make more strategic decisions about what you want. Everything is a tradeoff, if you take the big expensive jack you might lose out on support - if you take all the support you might not get to take all 4 jacks you want, etc. To me building the list is part of the fun, and I just don't see that as 'enjoyable' in 50 points as it is in 35.
Just my thoughts. What does the blog-reading public think? Leave a comment with your opinion on point levels and reason - I am interested to hear where people stand.
