I played for 20 years as 7s up and must go alone when you order your pard up (or turned down as we would say), this is the only way i thought euchre was played until I joined Hardwood. This is how all Aussies play, and makes for a more strategic game as less known cards are in play. The Hardwood ver...

Tepake, I have to say your signature line is the most relevant and meaningful thing I have seen written here for sometime, IMHO.

Sorry jdub4key, I am so over this post, if you dont get why players go alone on 8 or 9 you never will.

I am not referring to the Victory Message Poll as is quite irrelevant to this one, I was merely saying the majority that have voted for this poll dont care if u go alone on 8 or 9.

It doesnt matter how u manipulate the votes, the majority are still saying this doesnt matter. As i have said in this post before, something isnt necessarily offensive just because someone tell u it is. In my opinion players are rude in Euchre by slowing the game up to comment NSP etc during the han...

I have played Euchre for many years, and until I came played online I hadnt come across this crap assumption that it is impolite to go alone on 8 or 9. Sometimes it is strategic play not to have your pard play, other times if you have a great hand u just want the thrill of getting a loner, and perha...

Thats not rude is just lack of skill, is your opp so let it go. Whats more annoying is the polite police who decided it is 'rude' to go alone on a score of 8 or 9, sometimes is strategic to go alone then or heck you just have a great hand and want to go for it, either way is your choice. What is rud...

Well good gurls of HW, the only thing I can see out of this misplaced crap is promotion for your great idea. There is never much on at that time of day, and being an Aussie this is the time I am most likely to be online and looking aimlessly for a tourney. Good luck with it and I will be there at th...

Jonas, was that just a tease to include canasta and crib in the vote? Was so excitied until I read you were really only talking about Minesweeper. Don't you think is a little overkill on the minesweeper, like how many versions can there be. Please, please consider utilising your resources for develo...

The chat I referred to in the lobby did not even involve redskinfan, and was nowhere near a brawl. Would assume now that it happened sometime after than what is being referred to. But i just give up, the point is totally missed by most, doesnt matter what movie is being discussed it is so irrelevant.

I so hate to admit this. but the way people are arguing over the religious merits of this movie proves to me that there may have been good reason to ban the topic. In my naivete I thought it was ridiculous that adults couldnt discuss a movie without a guide waving their big stick. In popular culture...

INCONSISTENCY OF HW CENSORSHIP

In smoots today I saw a blue guide warn players from talking about the new Mel Gibson movie, Christ the Passion. To me this is such an overkill, if ppl dont like the movie (or any movie for that matter) dont go to see it and dont discuss it. It is such an abuse of power to ban or silence players fro...

Razler u r so correct...consistentcy and enforcement of no TT would do so much in cleaning this up.

At times is blatant cheating, but i think a lot of it is ignorance of the rules which is perpetuated by TDs who either cant make the tough decisions or dont know the rules themselves.
