Warning: The surgeon general has determined that playing The Cigar Game may be hazardous to your free time. But even nonsmokers can enjoy this 100 percent noncarcinogenic game. You're in the business of making cigars, which consist of a filler, a wrapper and a binder, in that order. Each of these cards has a grade of one, two, or three. After players bid points for the right to go first, turns consist of playing fillers to start new cigars, and adding single cards to any partially completed cigars. All ingredients of any cigar must be of the same grade, which determines the score for completing it. The first to reach 21 points wins. Other cards to spice things up are Cigar Stores, which guarantee points but limit your hand; Bumper Crops, which allow extra cards; and Droughts, which hasten the game's end. You say you were just a point behind the winner? That's close, but no cigar.
