Sorry, but I have to agree with Akweth on this one. ESPECIALLY considering the fact that there exists the option to create a new nick at will (something that I am ALSO opposed to...), I fully agree that resetting is nothing short of manipulating the system. I posted a message here a while ago (in th...

Didn't mean to imply that YOU were serious about having chat outlawed during the game SN, but I suggested that OTHERS may be. Good idea tho about having an OPTION to disallow chat (and I might include fooming here) if the players at a particular table all agree to it - maybe it could be included as ...

As I said earlier, I would like to try this new type of Spades! However, I can't help but wonder at the claim that luck is eliminated... For instance, if my partner had bid nil and I have the choice of playing either 2 clubs or 2 hearts, and my partner has (unknown to me) two hearts left, then it wo...

:( I was afraid that someone was gonna come up with that suggestion - nor sure if you were serious about it SN, but I am sure some WOULD be... Players may get frustrated with a partner's playing, may get overly excited about winning a particular hand, may be just naturally "talkative"... whatever th...

OK, Justice, I see your point, and don't necessarily disagree with it. However, the situation of disallowing talk about the hands or the game BETWEEN hands begs the question "Is it ok to get together BEFORE the game even begins and scope out a specific plan of playing based on how a certain pair of ...

Hmmm... I can see a lot of "new" strategies for a game like this! Imagine that your opp constantly gets good hands and bids 6,7,8 constantly... All you need to do is bid 1 and make sure that you send ONE bag to your opp... doesn't MATTER if your 1 bid gets "set"!!! :) It sorta reminds me of games wh...

Couldn't agree more with the general ideas expressed here. There is even another form of TT which, even though after the hand has been finished, still communicates info. That is when one pard will start telling the other that he was either trying to bag em, or set em, or bags don't matter at this p...

Mind if I jump in here in your "defense" Spooky? ...Not that you NEED it! :) I have read ALL of Spooky's posts from the past several months (when I first discovered this forum!), and I feel that I know a little about what makes him tick. 1) He likes to play Spades 2) He likes to win 3) He has spoken...

...Funny. I do not have MSN, and most times when I log into this thread I get the popup window asking for a login to MSN. I click "Cancel", the login window goes away, and I see ALL the sigs, animations, etc with no problem ALL the time!!! :)

LOVED your analogy Justice! :) I think you got right to the heart of the whole cheating debvate - MANY people "cheat" but do not realize that they are cheating, and a great many more do it because it is SO easy and they figure that "others are doing it, so why not ME too?"... I'll add to your analog...

Well Gypay and SN, your comments about etiquette and sportsmanship are right on the money! I guess the main point of my starting this thread was to get as many people as possible educated to some degree about the whole concept of TT. I have no delusions that this will deter those who use TT delibera...

Yes, Spooky, I realize that these other forms of TT do exist. I omitted mention of the fooming and hesitation because when those are used, they are usually quite deliberate - I wanted to draw attention to TT in general for those people who are DOING it but are not AWARE they are doing it. There are ...

What is "tt"?

Man! Am I frustrated! And it has nothing to do with the Missus either! :roll: I have had a number of games lately where the opponents chat across the table about the hands being played without apparently realizing that they are engaging in a subtle form of cheating. When a player nils in a pass gam...
