My cards: Alaska Congo Scandinavia lackattack's cards: Indonesia Brazil Kamchatka


Why it is needed:

If a teammate is nearly dead, and has 4 cards, it is your turn, and you are deciding whether he will be safe with a set on his turn. It turns out that he had no set, and then gets eliminated by the other team. I know we could use the chat, but if you have a partner that doesn't even LOOK at the chat, it would be very useful.

That's up to lack! Seems most everyone's for it though. Maybe add a poll to show lack how most support it?

It'll be much easier to just see their cards, sometimes I forget to mention it to my teammate and vice versa. I've often been left wondering what my partner is holding when trying to plan a move. Sure you can ask, but who wants to wait for an answer? It's much easier, especially in a sequential game, to plan a strategy at/before your turn, instead of having to wait for a partner to answer and check back and wait. What a hassle. Not many have time for that.


I am totally in agreement with that.

The only downside I see is cluttering up the game page.

I have a tendency to ignore everything anyone without an Avatar says, and with yours gone... Well, it's just, awkward.

I like the idea though, but I wouldn't say it is landslide support like Wicked indicated. Seems to be half & half.

Well if someone is using a small map on a bad resolution the cards will word wrap to be 2 or even 3 lines.

I can definitely see 2, but 3 would probably only come up in a triples game.

I don't think it'll clutter at all. If someone's on a small screen, they're used to things being on multiple lines anyway. :wink:

Seeing your partners cards........... I like the idea...

What about a card "pool" for all your teams cards to go into that all team members have access to them at any time?....

It would still make people communicate in the game...by discussing how and when to use them..

Just an idea.....probably a bad one....

I'm gonna get flamed aren't I?.......:shock:

I's definitely not needed, but would be a fine addition. I think it should be put on low priority.

Postby Keredrex on Wed Aug 08, 2007 2:52 pm

Awesome Idea...It definitely will help Strategy... and would help if a player communicated the Wrong info By Accident.... Like if he put Guineas instead of Guyana Or New Guinea or Like in Chinese checkers.. Center I but he meant Center l....also it is easier then asking in a triples game what 5 cards each player has

I like it. Sure you say that you can ask your team mate, but often they might not get online in the 24 hours in which you have to take your turn - especially if you wasted 12 hours before getting on due to having to sleep.

I would've voted 'I don't care either way' if the option was available.

I figured it would be better without it, since people who don't play team games would vote that, that way they would have to vote "Yes, I like it" or "No I don't like it".

What did you vote, Andy?

I agree. It takes away one of the avantages of playing with the same partners over and over again. It makes me not want to play team games when I get team mates who dont communicate when the other team who plays together all the time communicate alot.

It isn't taking away the advantage since you can still communicate about tactics and strategy the same as before. All that I think should happen is that you should be able to see your partners cards.
