Hi Alois,

My name is Tony and I was wondering if there is rule that you can only reach to 30 points in a game at the most because my friend told me that if the score was 30-29 then the game is over.

Hi Tony,

There is no such rule.  The game continues until someone is 2 points ahead.

He probably thinks that because de old scoring boards (from the time when games were played up to 21) stopped at 30. When you're out of markers, you just start back at 1 (for 31), etc.
