Free Guard Zone
Really Rockn' Rules
Without last rock I will control the control zone.
Without last rock I want to hit what i can see (unless I am losing big).
With out last rock I will try to score more than 1.
With last rock I will keep my rocks in front of the tee line
Without last rock I want to keep play in the middle.
Control the control zone and you control the game.
With last rock I want to keep play to the sides of the sheet, so I can keep the middle open for last rock.
