San Antonio Conservation Society Award WinnerA perennial bestseller and a must for beginners and strategists alikeThere are two types of people in Texas: those who play 42 and those who need to learn. Winning 42 is written for both. A team game that no one tires of playing, 42 relies on neither luck nor memory. Skill and strategy definitely separate the best from the rest.Yet those who think they’ve mastered the game will find challenge in the advanced strategy chapters and fascination in the history and lore. Many who’ve grown up with 42 are nonetheless surprised by its uniquely Texan history, reaching back nearly a century and a quarter.Beginners will find easy instruction in all the fundamentals, from the intricacies of bidding a hand, or setting an opponent, to the challenge of the exciting 84 hand, and can proceed to advanced strategies at their own pace.Replete with championship statistics and stories gathered from veteran players and strategists—including many celebrities from astronauts to presidents—Winning 42 illumines a cherished tradition that links Texans from all walks of life.Played casually by those who enjoy socializing or intently by those who relish the logic of each domino played, 42 is perhaps the most widely acknowledged cultural expression in Texas.
