Doubling question

Post by RiverBelle » Tue Jun 13, 2006 6:41 pm

If your opp throws you the doubling cube and you decline, and you are in the 1st game of 3 pt match, do you forfeit entire match - or, my opp said (I think to lull me into a false sense of security) do you only forfeit that game? I thought the box that pops up said that you forfeit entire match.... somebody (besides my worthy opp) give me the right answer please. :wink:

yeah I still get confused with whats a match and whats a game.

I think we call a game a series of matches.

So you loose the match er round, but you would still have more matches to play before the game was over.

Jonas, it might be worth finding out what the standard terminology is for a game, set, or match, or whatever, and using that.

of course i could be wrong, but i believe the game is individual and the match is the series of games. when you are in the first game of a three point match and you are offered the doubling cube and you decline, then you lose the game, but only the first game out of a three game match. i am sure if i am wrong someone will point it out.

Ladybug is right.

If you decline the first double, you lose one game. If you accept the first double, the stake is two games.

And keep in mind, a gammon in a doubled game is worth FOUR (2 x 2).
