JO-JOTTE

Here's a book you will have to stock. It is being launched with extensive newspaper and radio publicity. 4000 Culbertson teachers are being certified to teach it. New card decks are being issued. Articles on the game are appearing in various magazines. Clubs are taking it up. The publishers are getting behind it and the Culbertson name should carry great weight... We cannot agree with all the claims made for the game itself. It cannot be digested in 20 minutes. It is a compound of some features of bridge and pinochle, having as primary elements, trumps, bidding, melding, trick taking, all entail some complexities. The rules of the game are set down -- the fine points are discussed -- actual hands are worked out. A two-handed game, a short and fast game, with enough high scoring to interest those who like that aspect of it. Watch the trend. Two-handed games usually appeal primarily to older people, who are not easily rushed into new things. But a good two-handed game is needed -- maybe this is the answer.
