TEXAS READS: Book on 42 a winner for Texas Tech Press

Texas Tech University Press has come out with the fourth edition of “Winning 42: Strategy and Lore of the National Game of Texas,” first published in 1997.

Written by Dennis Roberson of Fort Worth, a 42 champion himself, the award-winning paperback book ($15.95) offers useful information for the beginner and the veteran 42 player alike.

The new edition is updated with more stories, more strategies and clearer illustrations and type.

If you don’t know what 42 is, then you must not have lived in Texas very long. It’s a game played with dominoes by two teams of two players each. The teams bid against each other, and the team members work together to try to reach their bid or keep the other team from reaching its bid.
