I propose Death Valley, California, then all the losers can melt away and the winners can build card houses for shade and drink Tequila.

One of the reasons blocking is used is because the reward for landing a loner is overinflated at 4 pts using a 9's up deck, particularly when the game winning score is set at 10. Generally one loner landed can finish the game and is very difficult to drag back. Instead of attempting euchre gymnastic...

Personally, I suggest Iraq, after all, most nationalities are there already and I'm sure we'd get a Sunni reception and have a Shi'ite of a time.

To me its simple: If you think your partner might be a hindrance, e.g. lead, style of play...bad breath, whatever, GO ALONE...be darned the score, otherwise, use partner as a safeguard in case things go pear shaped. After all we're talking a maximum of 2 points needed to win the game, so including p...

COULDN'T RESIST..... :D a player stood at the pearly gates his face was worn and old he'd come to see what trait made all guides in a mold 'what have they done," st peter asked, "that ye seek the answers here?"

7's UP IS THE RIGHT WAY TO GO!!! Why you ask? I'm ecstatic you asked that..... i) It'll eliminate the 'loner' factor. ii) Players can play euchre instead of putting up with senseless blocking. iii) 'Next' will become less of an option and players will have to rely on ability instead of chance. iv) ...

Hi AB, I actually was just making it a hypothetical,,,food for thought rather than an actual deal situation, but since you asked...... I would prefer it to be a 'NEXT' situation where Spades have been turned down, however, the hand has a nice feel to it and depending on score I would be inclined to ...

Well Lucky, given that they have spent lightyears in their computer chair, i think they have contracted a computer virus and rigor mortis has set in so therefore there is no posting of the 'Top 25' list. All will be well when payday comes around, then they will arise from their respective comas and ...
