Develop a hard skin and just get in there and play...it's onl...

just before i purchase my membership...a question please?

When I became a member of hardwood hearts when I paid for my membership I also order a backup copy of the cd...this to me seems a waste of time as all the cd has is copies of all the games ( and indeed they will be of little use when the games are updated on the server) together with my registration...

why shooting the moon?

question on bids..help for a newbie please :)

I am sure this has been asked before but perhaps i could ask again :) In a game if I set my bids at 3 and my partner sets his at 2.....is it correct that if I win 5 bids and my partner wins none....we have effectively done the 5 bids and we get the 50pts and no bags....ie as long as the bids are tak...

I cannot believe how a game which in principle looks so simple can be so full of tactics, I would also like to say that hardwood hearts is without a doubt one of if not the best card game si...
