Re: Unreal high ranking?

it's such a no-brainer to me so I never felt a need to extrapolate on it.

Re: Unreal high ranking?

the thing that makes a Euchre Player great, in my opinion, is a willingness to take a chance... which means a lot of failure! A willingness to call it or go broke. An almost mocking scorn at fate... a "bring it on" attitude. a...I can't stand this game, and yet here I am again and again, kinda thing...

Re: I am so upset with Hardwood

katy left. I'm sure she had her reasons. Respect her enough... show her enough that you trust her enough to know that what ever pulled her away was not something trivial, dare I say to trust her more--know that her decision was not impulsive or childish, or manipulative, but was well thought-out.

Re: The G with some Basics.

Oh and on calling block 3rd seat, bad idea. I can say from experience because I played with a partner who would block 3rd.
The problem with this is trust is compromised.

Trust is compromised... if trust is compromised how do I lead?

Anyway, gl with that.

Re: The G with some Basics.

The main reason is because most of the time you or your partner WILL have the stopper. I've been bitten in the arse counting on this premise, but if I never was to block again, countering all the bad blocks people have made time and time again, I'd still be in the lead... statistically speaking. :)

Re: New Room In Euchre

I mean if I were in a social setting in a pub or bar I definitely wouldn't say or imply the things that is going on in the room. I was in there earlier today and I witnessed someone call Jonas <blank>suker while he was in the room. I'll tell you right now, if that was me, I would of taken the room ...

Re: New Room In Euchre

I am happy to inform that I just popped into the new room for a minute and not only has it been moved to the bottom of the list (xlnt move) but the disgusting names are being censored! I went in and chatted with them and they were all in agreement that it was a needful thing to do if we wish to enjo...

Re: New Room In Euchre

I agree with the room. However I think the 'any nic goes' is a bad choice. (emphasis mine) saying you cannot enter unless you are over 18 is not going to keep kids out. There needs to be a special key given to those who are over 18, Applause applause. The new room will be abused for a while but wil...

Re: Playing from a Different Computer

According to that, yes. I stand corrected. It's news to me. People of the same family play all the time, thus the whole idea of having to play social games. I have even see guides of the same family on at the same time ...in the same game. >>>scratches her head I certainly don't want anyone getting...

Re: Playing from a Different Computer

Slight correction You may play the same game at the same time on 2 different computers. However, if you wish to play at the same table as someone with the same key as yours, the server will only allow you to play social, or 'unrated' games. I believe the same holds true for having the same IP addre...

Re: sand bagging
