Re: Lowman

Ur preachin' to the choir, Brian!!! I think that everyone can see that playing 90%+ of your game to target lowman is the obvious path to a win (ie 1st place). The problem in a lot of cases, however, is human nature. For example... It is mid-game. "Billy" is in 3rd place, and could get stuck with the...

Re: Lowman

The problem with playing an honest game of "lowman" is two-fold - SKILL and TRUST. Firstly, ALL players in the game must have the skill and experience to understand what is going on. If the player to my left who is holding the Queen doesn't understand that by playing my King into him that I am going...

Give Credit where Credit is Due!

Just d/l'd this game this morning, and it is very addicting!!! I played a LOT of challenge games, and at first when I won the challenge I was getting my 20 credits/chips/tokens. However, after logging in this afternoon and viewing the results of games played earlier (of which I won 12 and lost 3) my...

Re: Changes?...

'K Dust... I'll wait and see what happens. But from what I have seen SO far, a very SMALL group of players are utilizing the "no shoot room". My guess is that while there is a small group of people who play no-shoot almost exclusively, most no-shoot players play BOTH variations, and given the choice...

Changes?...

I have been away from the forums for a while now, and so I may have missed some discussion on this topic, if any has taken place... Just logged in tonite to play a few games of Hearts, and noticed that in Smoots I could no longer set a no-shoot game. Seems that THAT option has been shipped off to an...

Wow! GREAT quotes there abcba123!!! ...I especially liked the one from that Omni guy!!! :D Let me toss in another way of viewing the rating system used in online Spades and just how accurate it may be... Galt, you say that a player WILL gravitate to his "true" rating with enough games played. Well, ...

IMHO, a rating system serves basically the same purpose as does a scoring system. And just like the score of an individual game doesn't always indicate definitively which team/player is better than the other(s), so the rating system doesn't always indicate definitively where a player stands in compa...

If you START a game and leave FOR ANY REASON, it is considered "your" game by the server. If the player who replaces you LOSES that game, then you WILL lose rating points. On the other hand, if that player (who is now technically a "sub" in that game) WINS the game, then NO ONE should receive any ra...

...Really depends on the group of peeps you were playing with. Most players would not consider what you said to be table talk, but in the strictest sense it IS. It doesn't MATTER how obvious the comment you made was, it was STILL a comment that brought attention to something in the game that COULD p...

Good points galt. For one, I know that if I were to play cut Spades or partners Hearts, anyone at the table with me would wonder if it were really a person playing my cards or if I had just put the game on Autoplay!!! Partnership Spades and single Hearts I can do passably at. Also, the point about w...

From everything that I know and have heard/read about SCE's relationship with its customers, it seems that SCE ALREADY works fairly closely with people.

...Good point lastrahm!!! I have often wondered why the last card of the hand isn't just AUTOMATICALLY played. I have all my games set up so that if there is only one possible play that can be made, it is made automatically. Don't really see any good reason for holding things up!!! 8)
