Re: Hearts….. The way it was meant to be!

Great thread! I have always advocated "Low Man" Hearts; however, there are so few players who believe in this philosophy. However, the tide is turning. A dedicated "Low Man forum will be helpful. And I can understand the frustration of players who are victimized by the "duckers and dumpers" who give...

"I'd rather be lucky than good"

How many times have you heard this quote? about luck in Spades> Yes, I liked Galts' recent post about spectacular comebacks in Spades games. I certainly know how it feels to "steal" a hopelessly lost game from opponents who had big leads and frittered away their advantage -and coughed up the game a...

Re: Spades Humor

Hi there. FYI, HW Administration did not ask me to write my previous post. I like this site, and most players here are nice people. I do not get 'ballistic' if the deals for a given game are one sided for the opponents; nor do I brag or chortle if the cards in my favor. As in "live" play, the deals ...

Re: Looking for Editors to create a card game Ezine/newsletter

Hi Jonas .

It will be a pleasure to write such a column. The History of these games is most fascinating. And I will try to include a few basic tips with each article.. Let me know when this is ready to launch.

And thanks, "Primal Instincts" for your nice comments.

Cheers

Re: Looking for Editors to create a card game Ezine/newsletter

Hi Jonas -

I would be glad to write the History of each card game:

Spades, Euchre, Hearts, Bridge, Bid Whist, Pinochle, Cribbage, Canasta, et el.

Each article would be four or five paragraphs.... One Game / Month....

Please advise as to where this content is to be sent...

Cheers
