Re: leading trump

Between 1994 and 2001 i would get up from my cell and go play euchre alllll day long sometimes 16 hours a day 7 days a week. I know what random dealing produces. I have no doubt that statement is true. I think the thing that's the problem in the deals isn't that its not random enough, but that it's...

Re: "No, really! I'm not ignoring you." fix

Agreed! Tis true, but what you must know is sometimes it takes a long time to get a game, specially in Euchre.

Well, it was just a thought anyway. :)

"No, really! I'm not ignoring you." fix

I know you guys are so busy developing new games, but I have an improvement that I think might be good. There be times when I will set a game, sit for a minute, nobody coming, so I jump & run up the stairs; grab a sweater quick and when I make it back to my seat they are full and they have already t...

Re: New suits smileys

You fail to see him as the 'illuminate one" because you fail to see. No fault of your own. You have only a little bit of information; statistically speaking the odds are against you being equipped with enough information to make an accurate judgment on degrees of illuminations. Honestly, I find it d...

Re: No 1500 Ratings

That someone that you referred to in Euchre, was not talking about quitters, but about people who use the fooms as a means of communication, and I told him that that happens more often in the lower rated games than in the high-rated ones. And seeing that I rate new names every few weeks, I speak fro...

Re: No 1500 Ratings

This is the silliest thing I've ever heard! I can't stop laughing, how absurd. Tell me it’s a joke. A new brand of class you say? Kick out winners let losers stay. This is an antithesis of the purpose of a game! Which is of course to sharpen the wit and to heighten brain cell activity. To keep one o...

small tweeker board improvement

It would be nice if in the emoticons, the Smilies as they are called here, if there could be some that are card symbols: Clovers, Hearts, Diamonds, and Spades (in their respective colors.) It would make discussing various scenarios that are posed on this forum, easier to type out and to visualize. ~...

What am I missing here? There are two aces. ;)

Re: Table Talk

If this were my post, I would entitle it "Or Even the Appearance of Evil."

It might sound like a terribly arrogant thing to say, but once you make it out of the lower-rated games you will find more serious playing and you won't encounter such blunders.

Re: The G with some Basics.

I have to agree with this argument: P leads the left, you take it with the right, and lead the Ace of trump back with very little left in hand to carry it further The points are guaranteed.. potential of at least 3 between you, so why not see if there might be more? At this stage there is very littl...

Re: Quickest 2000 Rating

One thing I will say is that it is very disheartening when people ask you to bump the table rating down, and you do, only then to lose some pts and when they want to go bigger they won't do the same for you. I pained me to delete any that you have written, but This (and I empathize) hits the high n...
