UI Ruling Question
Tom: If what you say in point #2 is true, I think you should recommend several facilities in the area for the insane to the player in the South position.
Poor pair game movements
Although I prefer ANY movement in which you get to play as many different pairs as possible, we must face the fact that at the club, there are more than a few pairs that need stationary tables due to disabilities. At the club in which I play in Unit 140 ...
