Golf (also known as Polish Polka, Polish Poker, Turtle, Hara Kiri, Poison, or Crazy Nines) is a card game where players try to earn the lowest number of points (as in golf, the sport) over the course of nine deals (or "holes" to further use golfing terminology). It is a game for four or more players using a double-deck of 108 cards, and has little in common with its solitaire cousin.
Four or more players use two standard 52-card decks plus 2 or 4 Jokers . Each player is dealt 6 cards face down from the deck, the remainder is placed face down and the top card is turned up to start the discard pile beside it. Players arrange their 6 cards in 2 rows of 3 in front of them and turn 2 of these cards face up. This arrangement is maintained throughout the game and players always have 6 cards in front of them.
The object is for players to reduce the value of the cards in front of them by either swapping them for lesser value cards or by pairing them up with cards of equal rank and try to get the lower score.The highest score lost the game and the lower score wins the game. You have to play 10 games.
This game features a simplified type of golf. The area of the hole is rendered in light green, all areas outside the hole are rendered in a medium blue. On the larger holes the green is rendered as a dark green hole circle with the hole near the center. There are several obstacles that can appear, including trees, sand traps, and water features.
On difficulty A, balls that go out of bounds stay there and must be hit back in; on difficulty B, the balls stick to the edge of the area. Balls hit near the water can soar over it, or if they land into the water, the ball is placed back where the shot was taken. Balls hit into sand traps will stick to the sides of the traps, and it takes a more powerful swing to free the ball.

Pages has received generally positive reviews from the music critics. Allmusic's Jared Johnson found that the duo on the release "stretch their legs in the pop realm and rely less on straightforward worship", but "there is little to distinguish this album from other worship projects out there". At CCM Magazine, Andy Conway opined that "Pages is honest, oftentimes in-your-face, deep and challenging" and shows "these guys are great writers/musicians." Linda Michaels of Christian Broadcasting Network called the release "Soulful and soothing, intimate and inspiring". At Christianity Today, Russ Breimeier noted that "Pages is as pretty, passionately performed, and worshipful as you'd expect from Shane & Shane, plus chock full of interesting ideas", however at the same time "the music isn't as compelling, and frankly, sometimes boring." Iain Nash of Cross Rhythms called this "a beautiful album filled to the brim with strong ballads, each song [reflecting] upon the salvation and freedom that can be experienced by resting in the presence of God." Jesus Freak Hideout's Jessica Gregorius proclaimed it to be a "spiritually satisfying release", and wrote that the duo "continue to amaze".
