Fizzbin by kannafoot


Star Trek aficionados may remember a card game Kirk and Spock invented in the episode called "A Piece of the Action." The game was called "Fizzbin" and Kirk kept adding increasingly strange and random rules, attempting to confuse their captors and provide an opportunity for escape. The strange web of rules always reminded me of the normal card game "Cribbage". As much as I enjoy Cribbage, I'm convinced it was invented by two stoned mathematicians trying to pass the time between sets at Woodstock. It will also likely evolve into Fizzbin by the 24th Century.

Post processing today started with a warm tone II filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, protect highlights, boost black, and boost white. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.

Here's the high res version in Smugmug:
I've never understood cribbage or oh what is that canasta or somesuchthing my grandparents used to play.
