Euchre is a poor man's bridge.
It's still fun :)
I like bridge too though. Anyone here ever played Durok?
Durak rather*

Well, yeah, sure, I've played many many hands of Euchre in my day, but it's so hard to find a good bridge game that I guess it's embittered me against Euchre.

I never learned Bridge or Durok. Anyone ever play a dice card game called Knights?

Whist is a poor man's bridge. Still fun though. I need to improve my bridge skills.
Dub, (And i'm sorry, but i keep reading your name as dumbdell) cool! where'd you first learn about it? I never find people who know how to play and then they don't want to learn so we never play it.

A little late to the party, but my free time is pretty much entirely devoted to longboarding these days. Which for those living near a college campus, is waaaaay more than jut cruising from location to the next.

@Krellin, if you feel up to sharing I'd love to read what you've written, I grew up on old school sci-fi speculative fiction. Not a huge fan of fantasy but I had a little fun with it when I was younger. What kind of horror do you write? Lovecraftian by chance?

Tell it like it is. Euchre is a mentally disabled man's version of Bridge. Apologies to the mentally disabled among you. It's like Euchre was invented by a couple six year olds who watched a Bridge game without being told the rules and then tried to replicate it in their own game. I blame Midwesterners for keeping Euchre alive.

In all honesty
We tried this on vdip a while ago but It never really worked out, I still think its a cool concept though and was wondering if people here would like to try it. The idea is a classic game where you aren't allowed I lie. That doesn't mean you won't misdirect, or mislead people, but you can't outright lie.

How to get a sitter
My wife has reached full term and could go into labor any day now. So I figured I would go ahead and try and get sitters now while I have time (so that others don't have to wait later). The problem is I have no idea how the process works. What steps do I need to take?

Italian A Tyrolia to Munich has got to be one of the worst early game moves.
Unless this is carefully arranged bilaterally, I cannot possibly see any merit to this whatsoever. Yet I've been hit by it not once but multiple times recently, so clearly someone disagrees... so can someone tell me what the point of this move is?

Do people understand the meaning of diplomacy?
This is a very clever game, but I have to say there is a fine line between being diplomatic and lying your butt off, and I have to say I'm not impressed by the way some players play.

Forum Sadness...
There used to be a time when I used to keep refreshing my home page to see what was new on the forums. Now there's just so much trash talk and so many muted threads/people that my forum column on the home page is just empty. Screw you trolls. You ruined my webdip experience.

NEW GAME
Hi forum! I'm in two games right now and will drop down to 0 pretty soon. I'd like to start a new game with those interested. It will be:
WTA, non-anon (preferred), 2-day phases, 25 D buy-in. Please post interest below. I'll set up the game next week (likely), and if we generate enough interest, maybe multiple games.
