    The order of players is:

    Chaos Turtle

    There is NO TRUMP; a Jester was burned. If everyone PMs their bid by 5:30 PM EST today, you guys can start; otherwise, you'll have to wait until Monday.


    EricBess: 80
    Jigglypuff: 70
    Chaos Turtle: 100
    rkoelsch: 160
    BigBlue: 220
  2. BigBlue Magic Jones

    How about No bid, we get 10 per trick taken... :D

    OK. I guess I'll prepare to be set up... I hate rounds with no trump.
  3. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    Only because you are in the lead. I think in knee jerk reaction everyone will under bid and noone will want to take a trick.:D
  4. EricBess Active Member

    Possibly, but remember that the fact that each trick is worth 10 is a built in mechanism to encourage a general overbid, so I think it all works out in the end.
  5. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Sorry, but No Trump Silent Bids are rough, on everyone...

    Especially CT last time as I recall. You can get on a roll and take a ton, or get stuck for none if someone else gets on a roll.

    I really think that this whole game comes down to the final round and if you are within striking range the other rounds will be insignificant, there will be 12 cards with no trump and all wizards and jesters are dispersed... A Sandbaggers paradise.

    Queue up Coolio... (or Weird Al if you'd rather).
  6. EricBess Active Member

    Right, which means that the Wizards and Jesters are pure gold in that round, giving you a ton of control.

    Sorry guys, apparently one of you forgot to send in his bid over the weekend when I was gone. So we're still waiting on one person...
  8. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Evidently, when I sent in my bid, I hit the "Flush Into Abyss" button istead of the "Send Reply" button. Blame Neitchze.
  9. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    I really think Ed needs to get rid of that Flush into the Abyss button. It is so confusing.:D
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Here we go:

    EricBess: 2
    Jigglypuff: 2
    Chaos Turtle: 4
    rkoelsch: 0
    BigBlue: 2

    No under or overbids this time; everyone could be a winner! Take it away, BigBlue...
  11. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Some folks must be gun shy...

    Let's start this off with a Queen of Diamonds
  12. EricBess Active Member

    I'll trump with the Jack of Spades...

    What? No trump? Okay, but I'll play Jack of Spades anyway.
  13. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    I'll play the 6 of Diamonds

    (- Steve -)
  14. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    2 of Diamonds
  15. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    Jack of Diamonds
  16. BigBlue Magic Jones


    Let's try this again...

    King of Diamonds
  17. EricBess Active Member

    Suddenly, I look and find a Diamond in my hand. Oh no, I have cheated. No big deal, I'll cover it up by playing the 8 of Hearts :p
  18. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    Welly well well... (Does anyone know what game that's from?)

    10 of Diamonds
