** 500 **

Postby redwill on Fri Aug 16, 2013 1:28 pm

See the other thread for discussion.

For this first game, I'll be mod and we'll use my rules because I'm used to that.

So we need four players. Partners will be determined randomly, unless people wanna pick partners.

Juice and Troy Loney have said they're in, so we need two more players.

I have to be gone for a few hours, but then I can randomize the deck and we'll start.

Is there anything special the dealer needs to know? Because if not, I could deal allowing for the need of only 1 more player.

I'll give it a try. Would bow out to someone who has played before.

I actually had a lot of fun playing with myself. Hahaha.

Good enough.

This is going nowhere, though.

Although I've never played 500, and it's been years since I've played any card games. But I think I get the basic idea.

OK. Juice will partner with rel and Troy will partner with WK, if that's acceptable.

Rylan and I will co-mod this first game, if he's still willing.

N: Juice
E: Troy Loney
S: relantel
W: Willie Kool

We'll start with W being dealer, so first bid goes to N: Juice.

I'll randomize the deck and distribute hands.

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. Swamped.

relantel PM'd me that he passes.

WK is up.

EDIT: Just a reminder to WK that he can pass, leaving Troy's 7 Hearts as the winner, or overbid Troy.

Do you need sort of a walkthrough of your options right now and what's going on?

I bid 7 hearts, if you pass i'll take the widow and then lead the first hand. Then whoever takes the trick from then on will lead. we'd need to win 7 out of 10 hands to get the points.

If you were stong in red you'd maybe want to up the bid to 8, if your strong in black you'd have to bid 8 to take control, and you'd know that i'd be more of a red hand.

Sorry if this is too leading...just trying to explain some gameplay.

That's fine, Troy. This first game (and especially this first hand), it's good to offer advice. Without revealing too much, of course.

EDIT: Remember, though, that we can discuss what would have been a good play after the hand is over.

Troy wins the bid with 7 Hearts.

Widow has been PM'd to Troy. He leads play.

Hearts is trump.

relantel PM'd me yesterday that he probably won't be around until noon-ish, so no hurry.

A reminder as play progresses:

You MUST follow suit if you can. If Troy leads a Heart, you MUST play a Heart if you have one. If he leads a Spade, you MUST play a Spade, if you have one, etc. If you have no card of the suit led, you can play whatever you want. Trump takes any suit (and a higher trump takes that), otherwise, the highest card of the suit led wins the trick.

Also, remember that the JOKER is always trump, so it's a Heart (the highest trump, in fact). And the JACK of Diamonds is also trump (the third-highest trump).

Also, it's traditional at this point that the women at the table start talking about anything unrelated to cards and annoy the hell out of the guys.
