Release: N-Of-A-Kind



  • @apapadimoulis ?

    Excessive Branching says "-2 for each two-of-a-kind"

    If I have 2 of Birds, 2 of Doors and 2 of Fruits (total: 3 cards):

    • Is that a 3-of-a-kind, and thus not scored?
    • Is that a 2-of-a-kind (ignoring the excess 2 of Fruits) and thus scored as -2?

    Similar question, let's say, for some reason, I have 5x copies of 2 of Birds

    • Is that a five-of-a-kind, and not scored?
    • Is that 2x two-of-a-kind, and thus scored at -4?

    • Is that 3 distinct 2-of-a-kinds?

    I mean 2x 2 of fruits, 2x 2 of birds, and 1x 2 of doors. Will edit.

    No, re-reading I mean I have 3 cards, one each of the 2-ranks.

    according to cribbage scoring rules it's three separate 2 of a kinds.

    so i'd go with that.
