WOOD RIVER - Larry Ashlock’s Tic-Tac Match card game was what he described as a "huge success" in its first tournament recently at Paragon Games in Wood River.

Ashlock’s card game has attracted national attention and will be on its way throughout the country in the near future. A story is to come in December about Ashlock and his creation.
