My wife and I have developed a twist on an old Burma Road game. After looking at several '01 out sheets that are on the internet, I have realized that the 9 most common target numbers for Triples and Doubles are the Bull, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 14, 12, and 8. 65% of all outs from 170 and down are of a combination of these numbers.
So we devised the following set up in our Burma Road games. List 8, 12, Double, 14, 16, Triple, 17, 18, 3 in a bed, 19, 20, and Bull down the chalkboard. Start at 50 points like the usual game. If you miss the target numbers then your score is cut in half. The kicker is that on Dbls, Trps, and 3 in a bed, you have to hit one of the target numbers instead of just any number.
By doing this for a couple of weeks my wife has improved in her 301 league from 26.7 points per round to 42.5 points per round.yeah
Could others give this a try and see if helps.
I'll have to give it a try first chance I get!
I normally play this game with cricket numbers as follows:
Any double on the board
Any triple on the board
20,Any three in a bed
Now I will play both games practice, and I will change the "Any" to "use only the numbers in the list."
