just a thought

I think it would be a good idea to darken out the cards when games is paused.

Re: The Rating Game

Actually, we are all faced with the same thing. The majority of my free time (Pacific Time AM) there are no 20, 19, 18, 17, and it's pretty hard-pressed to find even a 16oo game. So, I decided that improving my game was what I wanted to focus on. I make lots of names and join games anonymously. I pl...

Re: The Rating Game

Consider this: The top 25 is dominated by the same few who partner each other continually. Does this mean that the good are getting better and have improved their game? Not necessarily. It means that the circle has grown tighter and that they have learned to play well together. I would bet money on ...

A skeptic I look forward to, a cynic not so much and it just so happened on my day off.

Re: New HW Upates?

Oh I have met a true skeptic at heart! I'm not saying it's a quality I don't admire. I do. Even those of faith must question everything. However, I am curious as to why you put Jonas' name in quotes, as if implying that might not really be him. Anyway that's irrelevant. In answer to your question ab...

Re: New HW Upates?

That's like shaking your fist at the king. This is a monarchy. Not a democracy. A business owner is at his own discretion in how he deems fit to funnel the company funds to keep business flowing. From what I've observed they are improving the site and the improvements are being tested and corrected ...

Re: to much chat and randomness

I prefer fast games too, but I also think a small dose of the nicety doesn't hurt as well. Yes, I know it can be very cumbersome sometimes with all the gg, nj, wpp, nt, ns, ty, tp, vnt, gh, nh...etc etc ad nauseam, but from my experience that's what sets Euchre apart. I was amazed when I came here t...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Another thing I would like to note about this scenario that you call mind-boggling is the fact that after the dealer passed on a red bower, 1st seat passed. Now that truly does boggle the mind. Also, I would like to clarify from my previous post about trusting partners. I will always trust my partne...

Re: The G with some Basics.

G, i figured with you turning down a red bower you were loaded in black. This is a perfect example of knowing your partner. When I don't know my partner...I don't trust my partner. If I don't trust my partner I tend to call 3rd seat afraid they will pass. How many times... how many <insert colorful...

Re: Game Setting Options

At first glance I wholeheartedly agreed with this idea, but on second glance I confess I must disagree. Anecdotal evidence it's true, but haven't we all been in game, intending to stay the customary three when onto the stage enters Cousin May with her pet cow Daisy, knock knock. It happens all the t...
