|PURPLE PRECISION CARD|
|The Purple Precision Card (PPC) is an attempt to make a usable version of Precision. Perhaps we might post the system notes too with a little encouragement.|
|In designing it, the following principles were
assumed to be of paramount importance:
1. No bid
should be needlessly complicated (no transfers whose
*only* purpose was to right-side a contract)
|We don't think that these carding methods are necessarily worthy to become a standard. However they are included for completeness. Email us for further details on any of this.|
|With all these attributes, we can but hope that the
Precision Purple Card can
become a worthy alternative to the Standard American Yellow Card.
It has been noted that an Acol or other European player playing the PPC is apt to interpret many "standard" sequences quite differently from the average North American player - consequently, it is almost inevitable that the card comes in 2 styles, Acol-based and SA-based. However, so much of this is in the whole ethos of bidding that it is not worthwhile to try and differentiate in this document. Players are *warned* that the "cultural difference" between the two styles may be of great significance, and to discuss some "standard" (ie not specifically defined by precision) sequences with their prospective partner.
We have excerpted some system sequences into HTML - these have been available at this site for some time now at at this link.
