Well, I'll be dern. I tried it again the way Sybil had posted above and it worked this time. Basically what I did was reinstalled it from scratch from the installer.

I think the gnomes have been tinkering with stuff in the workshop.

Thanks Sybil.

Thank you for the replies.

I did try that Sybil, and also yours Galt.

I am using Vista also... I sense a pattern.

Then let me see if I can get to the bottom of what you are trying to say. Without the bag penalty people would still "bid their hand" because they want to gain more points in order to win the game. I believe this is what you are saying. You're saying that people would still bid *high* because they e...

Update

I see there is a Build 33. My Hardwood does not auto update. How can I force it to?

just bid your hand.........high score wins.... Just like to add one comment to your post... just bid your hand.........high score wins.... and this equals whoever gets dealt the best cards wins . No thank you. I can play many card games where this is the case. I'm not going to argue nils, because s...

Currently, they do not. The hardwood table is all you get.

Hope you enjoy it here.

There's that chance that you cut with a Spade then the opps run the A,K,Q and you're dead. 1 is much safer, but a lower bid always is. Maybe I'm getting too conseravtive in my old age.

What I hate is when you are first bidder and your hand looks something like this:

H: 7,9,J,Q
C: K
D: 6,9,10,Q
S: 3,5,6,10

...and of course you bid 1.

..and it ends up being a 10 bid total.

UGH!

If I had 12 bids every hand this would never come up. When you are last bidder do you always take the total to 12? I think it's unrealistic to think bid totals should always be 12, or even most of the time. Card distribution is just too random. It's not just at Hardwood, it's everywhere, even with ...

I'm a little confused. You say you want to set the opps but don't want the penalty involved with taking the over tricks. Well, if bags from sets were your ONLY bags, then they wouldn't have a chance at winning . If you set them enough to bag out, then even the 100 point bag penalty would be insignif...

What made it worse for me is she looks so much like my little Emily did when she was 6.

Thanks, Galt.

I agree with Sybil, Galt, Dust, and gramS... I think why Sybil wouldn't bid 5 is because a K,x is a bad suit to bid on. I think that might be where you think you have the strong 5. If my hunch is correct, then Sybil is right on, the K,x holding SUCKS. Galt's risk/reward is right on. Why stretch 20 m...
