Las Vegas is a partner game that combines a team's scores into a two digit number. This number is compared with the other team's number and the difference is awarded as points. The value of a point is specified during game setup and can be adjusted manually during the round (including presses).
This may sound complicated, but a simple example will explain the math. Let's say that Team A gets a 3 and a 4 on the first hole. You take the lower number (3) and combine it with the higher number (4) to form 34. If Team B gets a 5 and 6 on the first hole, their combined number becomes 56. Since Team A has the lower combined number they are awarded 56 - 34 = 22 points.
- Birdies Flip Score: Selecting this option will reverse the scores of the team that does not make the birdie. In the example above, if a score of 3 is a birdie then Team B's combined number would change from 56 to 65. Team A would then win 65 - 34 = 31 points.
- Eagles Flip Score & Doubles Points: Selecting this option will reverse the scores of the team that does not make the eagle and double the points. In the example above, if a score of 3 is an eagle then Team B's combined number would change from 56 to 65. Team A would then win (65 - 34) x 2 = 62 points.
There is one exception to all the math above. If a player is unfortunate enough to make a 10 or higher on a hole, then their score will be place before their partner's score. For example, if a team makes a 5 and a 10 then there combined number is 105 instead of 510. This rule keeps the game from getting out of control.
