G's Bot Coaching In Action!!!! Take a look!

I have to say that I could not believe my eyes nor could my P, Andrew of course, when we saw this play by none other than our own Bot King Arthur. Allow me to set the scenario. King Arthur was the dealer. King of spades was the upcard. Everyone passed as did King Arthur. I had junk so I passed, Scra...

Re: Placebo Effect...

"Make or Break" on loners for score is a good option but not one that I think many players will select or use... it could make the game interesting however and would stop those shots in the dark for the impossible not so likely. One of the things that really stand out and make euchre unique is that...

Re: Placebo Effect...

PS. I like what Janet said about a Dutch loner, maybe add to it, if they got 4 tricks you don't count that as a Euchre, just stays the same score. Oh man, so many different combinations. :D Eennie Meenie The G Gosh.. I never thought of that. 0 pts if you don't make it. That could be a double option...

Re: Music

hmm i never thought of trying to do it that way. I'm still baffled as to where the stock HW midi's are stored. The .txt file is just a reference to them. I'll give it a go though. Cheers for the suggestion Brian. Ok.. to add Midi files..... 1. Save Midi files to c:/windows/media and they will show ...

Re: Being voted off before start of a game

I am beginning to think that courtesy is so rare here that to expect a game host to be polite and ask you to leave so that you can politely accomodate such a request without a boot.... well that's just so radical it threatens the very social fabric that is Hardwood. Honestly until you've played Hea...

Re: whats happeninto the forum

Thanks for speaking for all of us Net! I think most topics in regards to euchre have a Topic posting somewhere.... Really what else is there to discuss that hasn't been discussed? Topics in my opinion get sidetracked into romper room "ripping apart" of other people's posts. That's a fact. Read throu...

This also effects the "leading what your p throws off rule".If your 2nd seat and you ordered up the hearts to your p.1st chair leads spades and you take with the ace from 2nd seat and 3rd seat follows suite and your p throws off clubs.You would not want to come back with clubs because once again yo...

Re: double leading off suite

Honestly? Hell no. I try to avoid double leading if the person who ordered is sitting behind my partner. They ordered hence you would assume them to be the strongest person in trump. Don't bank on them being two thick in spades just because only 3 people had spades. Only time I would do this is if t...
