The Biggest Ravage
For a long time, there had been a hypothesis that
one could take an unshared Ravage City with only
four cards in a suit, but as far as I know, it had never been proven.
I don't think anyone actively tried, but I know I
didn't know if the hypothesis was true or not. Kit
Woolsey just sent me a construction:
"West leads his 3 aces, collecting a club discard from each player.
He then leads a red suit to North, and North cashes a trick in each
suit getting a spade discard from each player. North leads a
diamond to East, and East cashes a trick in each suit, getting
a heart discard from each player. East leads a club to South,
who claimsgiving us the desired result."
