Sigh :cry: "Gamplay and competitiveness" ?? "started by someone who didn't like getting beat on last call of loner" ?? Ya think ??? I think not - to me it just rudeness, ignorance and overkill !! And an insult to your partner. But more knowledgeable people than me have written about it. I like to pl...

Interesting ... so .. if [We do also ask if someone is wanting to hold a long conversation they take it out of the main lobbys, so as not to disrupt players asking for people to join them in their games and so forth. On all our games you will be able to find a quiet room to do this Smile] Does that ...

Any advice for those wanting to improve their game?????

In the past we have played hearts in our family as a "fun" game - lots of laughing with chocolates and boasting rights for a week, for the winner. I have since played some online versions and found some of the games to be amazingly vicious - slash and burn affairs. But then i have played some really...

I am sure there are many many fine players - and many who would help newbies and wannabebetters - ie those of us who get stuck on 1650/1700 nics !! But, you know what, egos and other things get in the way of asking (well for me anyway!!) Of course recognising, getting a game with them and watching t...

OK. Enough - this is not even midly amusing anymore. Ignoring this is getting more and more difficult - and he swaps names - but is immediately recognizable by the venom he spits into the lobby. I know that the Australian Evening may not be a priority time for Hardwood - but if this keeps up ...... ...

Butthead, childish behavior does not only occur in children - as i am sure YOU are more than fully aware.
