Doubles update

During my visit to MIT I finally managed to get together four people to play partners Doubles. It was just like a two-player game in terms of strategy. I also participated in a game of Doubles with four unpartnered players. Among all my data points thus far of Doubles games with three, four, five, or six players without partners, I have found no real difference in strategy. I also experimented with just dealing out five cards per player. It made games quicker and made chance a little more important relative to strategy. Finally, I found dealing an extra card face up to each player to be a very convenient tool for randomly deciding who should roll first.
