Yeah, I find myself doing that too, because of how many times I have regretted not doing it! So, if I'm holding some decent trump of the upcard and especially if I have an Ace off, I am more likely to take the chance and order the dealer in 3rd seat. And I have to admit, a lot of this depends on if ...

Yup absolutely. There should not have been TRAM. Even if the combination of hands between pards might sorta justify it.. still, unless that single player is holding the top cards, it should not have trammed. That is a bug that needs to be looked at. Email the game log to Dan. maybe while he's at it,...

Jabez :) Nice to see you my old friend. :) I remember the day Partners first came to Hearts. It was like a new animal with teeth and fangs and strange markings. We were all frightened of it! It took me a long time to get up the nerve to play. I thought, gee the last thing I want to do is bring anoth...

What you are saying is that people shouldn't get upset.

It's not a question of if they should or shouldn't get upset. The fact is, they do, just as your story so aptly illustrated. :)

Based on that fact I make my decision. :)

lol but it is a point of contention in Euchre, so why do something that might (more-than-likely will) upset others? Especially when most times there is no need for it. If it causes problems, why do it?

Anyway, that's just my take on it and that is why I don't.

When in Rome do as the Romans. It's simply etiquette. Leaving your shoes on upon entering a home in Japan is considered offensive and rude. Do it here in America, it's not. (at least wipe them on the mat, dammit, specially that Ogre bringing in swamp muk.) If it offends my fellow player to go alone ...

Simple, poor winners are worse than poor losers. Make the game more about skill than luck. 7 and up! C'mon, programmers! How much trouble has Euchre given you? Time to pay attention to the easy child. We dont have a thousand squeeky wheels like Spades and Hearts. We don't pull in the numbers... But ...

If you dont need to go alone then dont. At that stage of the game, most dont.

A good player will know if they need to or not. Most dont.
