Bouncing being worth 2 is fine, but you can’t do it while you’re also playing "let it ride" where you basically can’t play any defense. If you put that in, everyone would bounce. As much as I like defense in Rute, the game has to keep moving too, and it’s gonna be real annoying when people start swatting balls into other players games playing defense. Not to sound like a prick (even tho I’m about to) between the bouncing and the "hot hands" rule, you basically want one person to just be able to get hot and carry some slackjawed mouthbreather through everything. It’s a team game, both guys need to be good. If you’re good, and your partner sucks, well, I hope you enjoy the weather and the golfing, because you’re not going to win.
