Calcutta is a game which is played with only 3 players.

6 points are up to be won each hole

Winner after 18 holes is player with most points.

Sharing points per hole:

Hole halved by 3 players = 2 points each: 2 + 2 + 2 = 6

Hole halved by 2 players = 3 points each: 3 + 3 = 6

Hole won outright = 4 points. coming second alone = 2 points: 4 + 2 = 6

Hole won outright with the 2 other players halving: 4 + 1 + 1 = 6

Check totals every 3 holes to ensure running total is divisible by 6 (18, 24, 48 etc)

Game strategy is to always at least play for the single point, not only to increase your total, but to reduce the competors.
