Jacks Reigning Champion

JacksThis week my extended family on my mom’s side are all together at my grandparents for a family vacation/reunion. As is traditional in my family, today we had a series of games and competitions organized by my mom and aunt. Among them was a double elimination tournament of Jacks. Jacks, it turns out, is actually a pretty challenging game of hand-eye coordination, and there was some pretty stiff competition—particularly among my grandma, mom, and aunt (they all grew up playing it regularly). But after a number of very intense and close games, I won the tournament. So I have now earned the title of Jacks Reigning Champion for the family.
