Enjoy a classic game of Hearts and watch out for the Queen of Spades! Finish the game with the fewest points possible, or try to Shoot the Moon.
Hearts is an "evasion-type" trick-taking card game for four players. Hearts is also known as Black Lady, Chase the Lady, Crubs and Black Maria, though any of these may refer to the Heart-like, but differently-scored, game Black Lady. Hearts is regarded as a member of the Whist family of trick-taking games (which also includes Bridge and Spades), but Hearts is unique among Whist variants in that it is an evasion-type game.
Ever since the new format has been unveiled, the quality of such a game has been compromised, I thought by now the professionals would have addressed the problems by now. The game has lost it's appeal, considering the difficulties now experienced by those who used to look forward to the friendly access that was once available.
Okay, all you rookies and window shoppers. Listen up. The courteous way to exit a game is to go to the top right corner of your screen and click on "Exit Game." If you use other ways to leave, the game can't resume for 60 seconds.
@Sege55 Your best computed score has to be in the top ten since Midnight. Your computed score is determined this way. If you win a game, triple your score and subtract it from the sum of the other three scores. Of course, it is done for you but it's good to knew how it's done. To be #1, you might need to end a game with a score of -500 (minus 500). Give or take.
@MikeSimons @rolocole @Sege55 That sounds in the ballpark. I frequently shoot the moon 3 times in a row and four is not uncommon. Once upon a time, I shot 9 times in a row but that isn't likely to ever happen again. I'm far from being the best. Of course, they don't have to be in a row but I'm just saying . . .
I do believe that gobluejaj is a bot that can go below zero and with the dealer's blessings. I have known for a long time that there is a fraction of a second between when I pass and when THE DEALER passes back to me and I can goad him into passing back what I want, but 43,434 is not a human score.
@badogcatcher -perhaps you would be happier elsewhere, I doubt it because any where you go you will need to read the instructions. I felt like you do until I read the hints & tips on the changes--now I like it better. Either you weren't that regular before or you haven't spent any time playing around with the new format. Good luck finding another FREE game site with as many selections OR in experimenting on this site!
