Batsford (Forty Thieves type)

2 Decks. Hard (8%). Skill/Luck balanced.
One of the newer Forty Thieves games in PGS. It deserves to be more popular particularly as it is not nearly as difficult as the rating suggests.
15 of the first 25 are definitely winnable but I'm pretty sure some of the ones I failed with could be won with more effort.

    Batsford Rush looks like an interesting variation.

    Perhaps, but as Batsford was 60% winnable with no redeals, Batsford Rush could be much higher with two of them. I am currently plying another Hard category game so it will be a while before I try B.R. I'd want to play about 50 before an accurate winning percentage could be established. If you want to make a start though. ;))

    Well done Alexa. I believe a patient person could win practically all of them. I found that it could be an advantage if I left a space open instead of filling it immediately from the Kings cell. After all, you are allowed to fill it any time you wish and a different coloured king might become available later and be a better choice to fill the space with.

    Batsford rush is much easier than Batsford. With Batsford I have a miserable statistics :) But both of them are great games!

    I always tell people to play the games that they like. Glad you have enjoyed both of them. :)

    Batsford Again is easier as well, along with Batsford Rush too. I play both of those and have them as favorites.

    By the way, Batsford is a Klondike Type.
