Missiles and IM

I have made my feeling clear in the past with regard to IM cheats but I feel that the problem needs to be addressed again. Winning through cheating is not really winning is it? No you may get the points but you still know you never really won. A bit like the athlete who take performance enhancing dr...

Gandelf the Blue

I tried to post this before so if it comes up twice sorry. My cousin, who played here as Gandelf the Blue, died Monday last. I never know what to say on these occasions so I have copied this from our local Village Magazine. It is with sad regret that we have to announce the sad passing on of Mr Robe...

I think that their problem is that Fawkes sounds like another word if you slur your speech.

On November 5th last year I made the Nic Guy Fa_wkes. Upon entering the lobby it was immediately taken by a guide. I spoke to the guide in a private room and was told I had circumvented the rules to obtain the Nic. I made another Nic related to November 5th and placed in my profile, “On this day i...

Purple re: the pop up box:- As far as I can determine, although I’m not an expert. The Xbox does not have what you would call a registry resident. The registry is installed and called from the DVD being used; also Direct X is not resident in the OS but is instead loaded from the DVD. This means th...

And if you got disconnected from your game, you ALWAYS have the option of re-entering the game upon your return to the game site. omni, I've been disconnected a couple of times near the end of a game, and when I have returned the game is finished. There were no games to rejoin. In one instance one ...

The original post questioned the randomness in HW games, and the poster when on to ask how many deals were possible. Other have described the deal/cut limitations in Hearts and Spades. The situation in 24 card euchre is:- The first card has 24 choices of position in the deck and 24 options of card v...

Me again, if you look at omni's post you will see there are 24 different hands using the proscribed method of dealing. but there are still only 23 possible places you can cut 24 cards. You can click on all 24 cards but as I said before the 24th click/cut would involve picking up the pack and putting...

What if a player sits at a rated 1600 table, has a couple of losses and gos to 1598. Should they leave the game?

Also some so called quitters may just be disconnected and return to late to rejoin their games. I know that it has happened to me.
