This sounds like a good idea. I had a funny situation awhile back; once my partner disconnected and the opposing team booted me to try to nab the easy points (game was 3-3 at the time) , I right clicked the game every once in awhile.....then....the bots were up 9-4 forcing them to abandon :lol: And ...

It's a computer program, I don't think that method of dealing changes the randomness of the cards. Mind you, if I was at your house in a spades game, and you dealt the 1st 13cards to 1st player, 2nd 13cards to 2nd player..etc....I might get a little "higgly piggly".

Interesting point GTO, but....look at this example scenario......... Lets assume players A,B,C and D are the 4 best euchre players in the world. The play 200 games over the period of 1 month with each other in a vacuum (nobody pards with them, they only pard each other). After 1 month stats are as f...

GTO mentioned; .....how about the player who tries to achieve the LOWEST rating. I made post about this about a 8 months ago..........

well....if Ebay can sell a grill cheese sandwich with Virgin Mary's face burnt into it for $28,000 and a cane that carries a ghost for $65,000.....a one of a kind 1800+ nic that belongs to someone as charismatic as yourself, I cant see selling for any less than a few million dollars. :lol: If I get ...

Sorry that time was inconvenient for you....seemed to be what the majority wanted. Will try to get another consensus that could fit everyone (or almost everyone) in.

Well....the way I see it, if someone wants to set with one nic and play another is fine with me. The only time I switch nics is to try to keep a variety of nics active that I have not played in a while. What I have never seen in euchre is a high rated host boot a player because his/her rating is not...

I see what must be done here.........

I seen interest in 2 posts lately; "The high-rater huddle" and "Distasteful rating boosters". What's fair to do? Who's to say................? I remember back less than a year ago I hosted a 1800+ double elimination euchre tournament in Glendas once a week. The set up was perfectly fair for all who ...

This game would be both interesting in spades and in euchre. The advantage would certainly goto individuals with good memorization skills. As far as luck factor being reduced to zero.....not a chance. Those with better cards 1st time around would be able to reduce probability of being set with bad c...

buying the game to play with bots

It seems from another post many responded that they like to play against bots. One will soon realize that the bots on SC are programmed far to easy to challenge the mind of any intermediate or experienced euchre player. I do believe however, that a euchre bot can be programmed to be almost "unbeatab...
