New players,Go to book store,ask for. The Columbus-book of Euchre,2nd,editon.By Natty Bumppo.It will help you become a better player.And u won,t get mad,at Constructive Criticism.The rest is up to u.lol.
I have been having trouble with games.com and AOL for 4 days now. I learned something new last night. Games.com told me that AOL controls our game chat, our Leaderboard, and comments. So if we have a complaint, I guess we should contact AOL. Masque only controls the game itself.
is games.com going to the crap as well, As of today, fook it was so bad in euchere, cribbage, and canasta, Is everyone else getting these problems?
If you are doing the best you can
under your current circumstances...
kick up your heels and dance!
Hey all of you that are giving Ami crap! She is one of the nicest people in the world and is a good card player. SCREW the rules of whatever everyone THINKS this is or isn't. THIS IS A SOCIAL game to most of us here. If you want to play "by YOUR rules" GO PLAY WITH YOURSELF AND BY YOURSELF OR WITH THE BOTS. This is computerized game - duh. Get a life that more than this game!
LOL...I didn't know there was a "rule book" I learned from from friends....whilst ...drinking beer having fun
Just want to say I stand corrected in my statement about making trump with only Bowers, my apologies if I delivered the wrong information, that certainly was not my intentions. I would have bet I had read that in the actual paper back book of Hoyle 25 years ago. lol Guess I need to re-read it right. I am human and made a mistake in my attempt to clear up a misunderstanding, how dare I, I am so ashamed of myself. LMFAO
I,m reading hoyle,The last card of the pack,belonging to the dealer. It don,t say if he don,t have 1 he can,t pick it.THINK'' Every game has defence. if you can,t pick it Wheres your defence in stopping a game winning lone.THINK.
Some say.I can,t pick it,i didn,t have 1.if you did pick it how many would you have?.whats the rules, if u pick it, and throw it away,and some do.after a few beers. THNK.
Would any good player,turn down both bowers,and 3 suite aces,at 9 to 9,playing for 10.00 dollars.your opponents won,t,
Players are reading the book.good. Dealer always has a trump. He is the only one with 6 cards.When you deal,you will have 6 cards.You either pick, or turn it down.rules are simple.
I am only wanting to express two main misunderstood concepts of this game so many overlook, or do not know the rules to the game Euchre, or the Euchre terminology. First, according to the rules a player can not make trump unless they have that suit in hand. (Both Bowers player can not make trump, Both black Bowers and a 9 of clubs player can make trump clubs) Not spades because the player has the J of spades, only clubs. That rule here can only be enforced by ones own honesty. (The Honor system) Please keep the game honest. Secondly, in Euchre If you name trump you have to take at least 3 tricks to get your point. Failure to do that means "your set" and the other team gets 2 points. Some may care, some may not IDK, but for those that are trying to learn Euchre let's give them the benefit to learn the right way to play this Fantastic and very old game. Thanks for your time.
For those of you having problems, there was a Java update today. Go to Java.com Let Java check your system for the latest version. Just be sure to UNCHECK the boxes where it says ASK SEARCH & TOOLBAR. There are 2 boxes. You don't need them. The rest is EASY.
While on this ride called "life",
you have to take the good with the bad,
smile when you're sad,
love what you've got and remember what you had!
Always forgive, but never forget.
Learn from your mistakes, but never regret.
Things go wrong.
the ride goes on!
HELLO ALL, just want to say the tournament for Friday July 11 th has been called off. Will try to find another time to have it . Sorry for late notice!!!!!!!
@justpetemcd Yes - it's time for them to do some maintenance. Chat is freezing, timer is slow starting and even the bots are frozen many times.
@ami.te.amore but I look good in heels!!!
@ami.te.amore How true it is!
@smoke0784 and the cheering section !!! For no apparent reason
@fidobobfite How do you know if I play golf or not? You don't know me.
@Just pass The more beer I drink - the less rules there are! :)
@janthonyb1 Example #1. Ordering up Trump. The rules state that you can't order up trump without that suit in your hand. Ummm, excuse me? Where did THIS rule come from? Mom? Dad? An aunt? Uncle? Their parents? Perhaps a friend. This "rule" is a sick joke. Hoyle says that the determining factor in declaring trump is if you think you are strong enough to make a point. Period. "Joe" turns up a J of Hearts. It gets to you (Joe's partner) and you have two black aces and the J of diamonds and no hearts. Your not allowed to order Joe up because the "left" isn't the left yet! Huh?! Seems to me that you have required what the rules state. I would think that one of my Aces would be good for a trick, I know my left is and I know that the right that I ordered into my partners hand is certainly good for a trick. BUT! I don't get to play this hand because of "whose" rules? You may find a new fangled rule book that states this as a "rule". If you do, I'd certainly like to see it :) Question is, is this "rule" used by skillful Euchre players who know how to play the game or sissies who don't really like getting their butts kicked in a real game of Euchre? Whilst we're on this note. I'd also like to know why you don't like it when a dealer picks up a card without having that suit in his/her hand? Let me get this straight. We're playing for $10.00 a game, $2 per Euchre. It's my deal. You have no problem with me picking up a card because I have several in my hand and feel that I can make my point(s) and get that much closer to taking YOUR $10, but if I wanted to pick it up on a "hunch" with none of that particular suit in my hand and was seriously flirting with a Euchre, losing $2 to you and helping you get that much closer to the end of the game and MY $10 you have a problem with those odds? Whew, you're not the type to go to Vegas now are you?

@drkr2 Darlin, I've played a couple of days now and looked for you but you are now MIA. lol. Thank you sweetie for your kind words and friendship. Love ya.
@love_life99 thanks for your prayers. :) Still got my Mom. :)
@onewentwild @darling_daintyft @love_life99 @justpetemcd The CHAT is controlled by a separate entity. Games.com does not handle the CHAT part of the games. I know it sounds ridiculous but it's a fact. When Games.com is notified that there is a problem with chat, they in turn notify the chat company. It is NOT an AOL issue if the CHAT is screwing up.
