Can't connect to smoots (Hearts only)

Hi all,

It appears Smoot's Cavern is dead for the last few hours (5+ for me). It displays '109' players but when you try and connect to it, it just sends you back to the room list. ATM a couple of us hang around mm. This happens for all players, this problem is NOT limited.

Thanks!

Player is away timer

Hey all, I dislike getting invited to games randomly, so I decided to start using the /away option more often (very useful at 1am when I am waiting for one player to come online). Sadly I found out that you get a "you are away for 10 minutes" message after 10 minutes, half a minute later it starts a...

I'm back for a night and it's a nightmare...

So what's better then to come back to an awesome good ol' game of hearts? So I took 4 hours (8pm onwards, I'm...

You are welcome CookinCon.

As well, sandbar, I don't think such an option is allowed in hearts :wink:

Ibeeducky - Heh, I found a new game that really hooks me up (as well as grade 12 (woo! final year!) at school now) and is highly competitive. I wasn't in hearts since August I think.

New ideas for Hardwood Hearts gameplay

I was looking around at wikipedia and found several interesting new gameplays that worth a look. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearts_%28game%29 The ideas that I think are good are: Split Pass - An interesting addition, shouldn't be of a problem. Three Players' Kitty Hearts - There're some issues aro...

Idea Why not just create for each player the option for his decision whetever he wants it to split (both ratings reset to 1500) or just stay the way it is (pards+singles). That way you'd be satisfying loads of players on hearts which do not know about this forum or this current thread. I wouldn't be...

Well, I kind of like the JoD in Singles due to the fact that if someone shoots the moon, you get a chance to recieve -40 off your score (110 in total, instead of 150, which is a better) and at least you won't be so far away from the shooter (who'll recieve 0). brbrockway - Microsoft Hearts, both onl...

Scoreboard didn't count games ID / Rank (bug?)

Hey all. This morning (my time, 10:05am to 11:17am, Australia, EST time (+10 GMT)), I had 5 games on partnership. 1 with ******* and 4 with *****. Due to my rating being high and wanting to have a regular update of rank, I have checked my rank after those 5 wins. Quite surprisingly, it had recorded ...

they are just trying to be *nice* in a singles game. Which seems a tad bit silly to me! :wink: [/color] And I'd like to ask a question on this part. When I was viewing several singles games, people DID seem to be too nice. They have given the JoD to the high score player, and when given from that g...

Hey Aaxel and welcome to Hearts! Unlike in singles games, the Jack of Diamond is the most critical factor (or card) in shooting the moon / sun. If you got it (any time in the hand), you can go and take all the points in the hand to shoot. The tricks may be shared between you and your partner. They c...
