    Love this!
    Can i check, after each round of scoring, do they shuffle the cards again? so there’s three sets of shuffling?

    • Mark

      Yes, good question David – the cards are shuffled between rounds so that each person receives a card that (a) that is not theirs, and (b) neither partner has seen before. This last point is easier when the group is large. The bottom line, be sure that the pairs are not reviewing their own card at any time.

      Excellent Mary. I think it would come in very handy in your coaching. Have fun.
