Another day at Hardwood

Today at the end of a what was a very good game I was in last place but the others weren’t far behind. It was clearly anyone’s game to win…. The way it should be. Everyone was playing to hit low until the 2nd place person prematurely dumped the queen on me to end the game. When I asked him why...

It's the lack of respect for the game that hurts the most!!!

That's what I have been trying to say :)


I'ts disappointing that the majority of the online hearts players today have no clue about the way this game was meant to be played.

You have a lot better chance to add some first place wins to your profile if your'e playing lowman style! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) :D

Just a Thought

This topic was brought up on a previous post and I felt that it was worthy of its own thread. Does the fact that 2nd 3rd and 4th place is displayed in everyone’s profile affect the way they play the game? Does anyone feel that if the profile only showed the rank and how many 1st place finishes the...

If ever there is any kind of a change I’m afraid that it may be difficult for a separate lowman room to be successful. It’s hard to get people to leave Smoot’s Cavern and venture into another room to play but who knows? I personally like the idea of having a low man option if it is at all poss...

NatashaX…. That brings up a very good point. If people are willing to do whatever they can so they don’t finish 3rd or last just to keep their profile looking good, why not just do away with listing how many times you finished 1st, - last. Does your profile really need to list how many times you...

Thank you for your comments Joe. I can’t think of anyone more credible to chime in on this thread than you. You’re the man that wrote the book…… Twice! I agree with your suggestions especially the following: “First Place should be the ONLY player who earns points. Hearts is a game which re...

Poll

When I first started this topic I included a poll and for some reason it didn't work. I also tried to start a new post along with a poll in regards to this subject and again the poll didnt show up with the post. Has the option for the poll been disabled?

I do appreciate the fact that we can now set for +/- 50 100 200 however I feel that there is room for other improvements. Just my opinion! Since we are just giving our personal opinions here I will give mine once again…. I love Hardwood Hearts because: 1) The graphics are superior above any card g...

Re: i agree with dadio

[quote= "the fact that 2nd gains rank alters the way people play" Exactly! If 2nd, 3rd, and 4th were the same then players would genuinely try harder to play to hit low and there would be a lot less arguing and disappointment. Is there anywhere else in the world of hearts where points are awarded fo...

Why does 2nd place benefit and 3rd place lose less ranking?

Why should anyone benefit when finishing 2nd place? Why should 3rd place be any different than last? HELLO.....There is only one winner in a game of hearts! Low man games would be so much easier to find if 2nd 3rd and last place were treated the same! To me it is simple common sense to have 2nd, 3rd...

A stress free way to play hearts No arguing and no drama

I have realized that my expectations to consistently find a get low man game are impossible. I’m sure that if I concentrated on only playing to raise my rank the games would improve I don’t have the patience or time to wait for a game that will give me a chance to improve my rank. I just play wh...

A true lowman game will come down to each player being in the 90's and the last hand determines the winner and some of those were the best and most fun games I ever played. It is true very hard to find those players anymore that love that sort of game and have to seek them out, put them on your pla...

Re: re:what's your opinion

1st of all everyone should play to win, PNP is actually a very good strategy to get lowman i laugh when lowman gets PNP'ed and screams at you about it LOL.! Zerrion, Yes I agree everyone should play to win a lot of people think they are but the truth is they are simply not thinking at all! I’m mo...
