Well folks, I have to say I concur with Stan the Man. I am one of the guilty ones who throws a comment in to the mix in the lobby every now and then to stir up the masses or to dance the light fantastic with the 'Blue Brigade'. It is all meant to be in good fun and no malicious intent. I have also m...

Just a thought....with the way HW has a propensity to throw up LONERS frequently, perhaps for the 1800+ tourney, either the long game (15pts) be adopted to give e1 a fair go, or just for the duration of the tourney loners are off the menu. As we are all of a similar ability, HW idiosyncrasies should...

I play this irresistible game for the interaction with fellow players, and the challenge of seeing how far i can go with the guides b4 I get clobbered. Oh, I nearly forgot, then there is the game itself....a joy to have that joust on the table,(is that the game or the byplay?...maybe its the unmenti...

Daisy was inside doing the dishes, so she doesnt count.

Daffy was trying to upset 'that dang rabbit', so he doesnt count.

So that leaves.... Donald, Huey, Duey and Luey.

So my guess is 4.

Going alone should be an individual choice. No stigma attached. If u wish to go on 9 so be it. There is a mighty good chance u'd get a point anyway. If u want to go on 8, same deal applies, however as 'The Count' alluded, you do so at ur own peril. If u dont make the loner and ur p has the helping h...

Being one of the uninformed who lead trumps regularly i guess I should point out that I don't have a nagging urge to lead trumps, nor am I euchre suicidal. I simply see it as the best lead on certain types of hands. A simple example is when I hold Aces in the offsuits. Well, if I don't want them tru...

I can not and will not condone what they did, but now they are back lets give them a fair go (although, personally I will not play them when they pair u...

I, also, hate the ambiguous fooming, however I will say something that has not been mentioned, sometimes HW is slow and the fooms appear way too late. Be careful, the offending foom may be innocent.

Euchre Cheats

There is a growing unrest in the HW Euchre room as more and more players become aware of repeat cheaters. I, personally have reviewed game logs against the suspect nics and find the calls and plays far too perfect on a regular basis. This is not possible in euchre, we all find a wrong lead or an ove...

Euchre Cheats

Hi Country Fan, I am one of the people who watched that game. Although I didnt say anything during it I have to reinforce what the watchers said. There is a very large detailed report which has been submitted to HW covering quite a number of games played against your opposition and other nics they u...
