Is there a way to score bridge and majhong to account for changing players over time?
I play bridge and mahjong (not at the same time!) casually at lunch with whoever’s available to play. Usually there are 6-8 people interested and we can get four together for a round, but it’s not always the same four.
Both bridge and mahjong have scoring systems that affect the strategy of play. Without scoring the incentives change and the game is not as interesting. However, an hour or less over lunch is not enough time to complete a whole number of games of bridge or a full round of mahjong.
I’d like to keep score but need a scoring system that allows the players to change over time. It doesn’t necessarily have to track who’s playing against whom though that would be ideal.
Anyone have any ideas?
