Upon further reflection I feel we should have another go at the Vegas format....unless we need multiple cards or can start earlier....have 4 teams on one card would be nutso

8 on a card would make for a very dark finish. I hate paying to play in the dark.

This is what we played last week....we had 3 teams on one card. I can be there early to get a quick start...not sure about everyone else

Las Vegas: Definition: Las Vegas is a betting game for two teams of two players each. Winnings and losings can add up quickly in Las Vegas, so it's a game preferred by better - and wealthier - players.



In Las Vegas, each 2-person team plays for a team score on each hole. But it's not a normal team score. The team members' scores are not combined; rather, they are paired: Player A gets a 4, Player B gets a 5. The team score is not 9, it's 45 (the lower number goes first).



If both players get 4s, that's 44; if one gets an 8 and the other gets a 3, that's 38.



The team score represents the number of points each team earns per hole. Points are tracked throughout the round and the differential is paid off at the end of the round. A single-hole example: Team A scores 4 and 5 for a 45; Team B scores 5 and 6 for a 56; the difference is 11 points.



Points can be worth any amount.



Low-rollers should only play for nickels and dimes. Las Vegas is often played for a dollar per point, and it adds up quickly at that level.



And if your foursome is "flipping the bird," the money can really start to change hands. When employing this rule, a team that makes a birdie and wins the hole can flip the other team's score for that hole. So instead of the low number going first, the high number goes first. The opponent's 5 and 6 wouldn't be 56, but 65.



One safeguard: If one player scores 10 or more, that team's score uses the high number first. So a 3 and a 10 is 103, not 310.

It gets really easy after 2-3 holes and the drama escalates!!!! trash talking is involved, threats, traps...conspiracies...you name it, it all goes down...It's Vegas!!!!!

How about we add a twist? Play alternate shots. Same format but you play your partner's lie and alternate that way until you hole out. We could also do alternate tees....playing from blues for example gives more chances at birdies therefore, more flipping the bird....we could play yellow-blue for 18 holes....

Just a thought....I'm up for anything but it does get dark early and I don't want to delay the game...I'll be there

My only issue with alternate shot (aka the dreaded weave) is that I don't get a nice flow through the hole. One shot your on the left, next you're on the right....plus I think the weave takes longer....we could give each team a mulligan or two though

K.I.S.S.

Basic Vegas + 22's get to flip the bird on another team of their choice on their card.

2 or 3 teams = 1 card

4 teams = 2 cards w/ separate payouts per card

5 teams = 2 cards w/ separate payouts per card

6 teams = 3 cards w/ separate payouts per card

etc...

A turnout of 9 players came out for another shot at Vegas...

Teams were:
Don / Andrew
Eric / Shane / Cyle - took the best score from Shane or Cyle
Surge / Stef Myre
OMR / Chris Burgoin

I have forgot the scorecard at home , and cannot pinpoint the exact scores..!! But Eric / Shane / Cyle bluffed their way to the top again by giving Surge and Stef the " flip " twice...

Payout of 8 bucks the the 3 amigos...

Couple of ace bids...good times again !

Thanks
