Contestants don’t seem to understand the strategy of the final bonus game.
The “power chips” allow a player to discard a card. What they don’t seem to understand is that they have to tale at least ONE card after they use a power chip. So they MUST use ALL of their power chips before they cover their last “less than 10” column. If they blunder and bust, then they lose their bonus. It really is sad. Seen to many players hold their power chips and be force to quit with power chips unused or bust themselves when they blunder past that “point of no return”.
Reinke’s Rule: Players need to use their power chips before making all their columns greater than 10.
It seems so simple to me.
