Ability to see teammates cards/spoils [Pending]

Postby Gilligan on Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:40 am

I think we should be able to see your teammates cards in doubles or triples games. Underneath (or next to) your own cards, it could say, for example, if my partner is lackattack, in a doubles game, it could be:

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

If triples: My cards: Greenland Argentina Venezuela Japan lackattack's cardsKamchatka Ontario Alberta Ural Ukraine wicked's cards: Alberta


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.

Although it would be nice, that's what the chat is for. Too bad if your partner doesn't look. Send a PM to get them to check it.

I know, but it wouldn't be a bad idea. We'll wait for the mods.

I don't like it. Team games are all about communication, if you want to know what cards your partner has, then just ask them.

But, in a very good chance, another partner doesn't even look at the chat. If they do end up losing because of this reason, it's not fair to person that wants to communicate but the other partner won't reply in the chat.

Don't worry about the naysayers Gilligan, it's a good solid idea.

Ok, so if your partner doesn't read the chat... send him a PM.

And, what if the uncommunicative partner has a different strategy in mind, but you kill him off for cards and that totally loses the game for both of you.

I'd like to see communication in team games encouraged, not become self-sufficient and be able to play without talking to your teammate.

I like where your head's at, but just not this particular idea.

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.
